This revision guide covers all of the topics needed for the Edexcel ICT exam in a clear and easy to follow manner. Absolutely spot on, and an excellent price as well!

Amazing value for the price. Breaks up exam revision into small chunks. Fantastic addition is a past paper with answers at the back of the book. No more photocopying and bits of paper lying around the classroom. Very good value for money and worth the investment.
