What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4900)
"I have found it to be useful in helping to plan lessons for year 10 and 11. I will probably use it towards the end of the year for revision too... The course textbooks have been a bit tedious in places - this breaks it up into smaller, easier to manage pieces." - N Mounsey, Computing teacher, customer
"The resource is excellent, very comprehensively written. The content and level of this resource is perfect in supporting the course text and specification. It provides useful examples for both teacher and student alike and gives a sound base for the course material and revision for the examination The resource helps the students to remember key words and definitions. There are very clear examples in the text to develop theory and check the understanding of the students. The questions at the end of each section check understanding and give the students a very useful revision aidThe format and layout is excellent. The use of boxes around the text highlight clear definitions of keywords or examples of a particular concept. I like the parts of text the direct the students to a particular task. The questions are excellent in testing the learning for each section." N Hulme, Computing teacher, Independent Reviewer
"A fantastic resource... matches and interprets the specification exactly and details keywords using the correct definitions required. The resource is detailed and provides knowledge and understanding with guidance for further tasks/research that can be completed...The format and layout are easy to follow and find relevant information for each section of the specification." - A Sanders, AQA Computer Science teacher, Independent Reviewer
