What do teachers say about this resource? (11717)

Extremely comprehensive and well-written ... a good reference guide for students who want to quickly know what they need for a particular topic, perhaps when faced with past-paper questions ... Use of tables for formalise information is very effective. I also like the "magnifying glass in a box" to illustrate specific points/terminology ... The revamped sections map the changes in the new specification very accurately

D Bate, Head of Computing & Peer Reviewer

I like the flow of content. The fact that the theory aspects are there followed by exam questions is good and can help encourage independence. I think the attention to 1.6 is commendable ... Strong educational value which takes into account limited budgetary controls. It's a one cost solution that allows replication ... The content and questions is good and the flow between the two are strong. It also follows the J277 specification to the letter
