"I taught this Unit successfully for the first time this year using  these excellent resources to prepare my students for their external examinations. I got very positive feedback from the students. When the results came through for the January exam I was very pleased for the students with a near 100% pass rate (one near-pass). I really recommend these resources."

 Mr Alan Sinclair-Brown, Computing and Business Lecturer, Brooklands College, Surrey
