  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5297)
"There is a good mix of text and visual material which should cater to the majority of learning styles. The exam style questions reinforce the topics covered... The resource covers the specification well." - S Barron - Head of Computing, independent reviewer
"Excellent and comprehensive... Clearly matched to the specification with good detail and example questions." - M Rawlins, Computing teacher, independent reviewerr
"A good systematic explanation of the theory for the OCR Unit A451." - J Wright, teacher, independent reviewer
"Very good - extremely comprehensive... It covers concepts from the basics to a more advanced level. There is a lot of detail to help students understand... It has enough data to prepare students for the examination. It allows them to work independently by being a companion that they can read at school or at home when they are working independently." - D Thompson, Computing teacher, independent reviewer
"Consolidates learning of each topic; it would be easy to take a section of the work and use at the end of each section of Unit A451 work... The layout is easy to follow and 'student friendly'... I particularly like the questioning at the end of each section... questions are to a similar format to the that of the exam... Matches the specification] very well - no missing topics." - L Price, Computing teacher, Independent Reviewer
"Lovely resource - I think it is well written and very accessible for the kind of students I have studying GCSE Computing. Well presented. Would happily buy this! I think printed copies would be great for revision... Really like the links to BBC/ Computing Weekly (etc) as this adds realism to the resource and helps with students believing that the content area is important... Great reference guide for both staff and students.I really like the use of questions and the fact that the answers (with points distribution) are included. Also useful for students who miss lessons... I like how the resource is structured. I think that everything is covered well and in an easy to read style." - C Charles, Computing Teacher, Independent Reviewer
