What people say...

We use PG Online resources extensively and find them extremely helpful, especially with students new to Computer Science at A level.

Leslie Timms. Head of Computer Science, King Edward VI College

I definitely think your resources are by far the best I have ever come across, it is the fact that they cover a nice amount of time, and that they are editable and come with worksheets etc.... and I am hard to please.
