What people say...

We have been really impressed with your new AQA Computer Science book. [We]... like the way that the book has been broken down into easy to follow chapters and includes practice questions for the pupils.

Mark Nightingale. Head of Computing, Sacred Heart School

I received your sample copy today and took the opportunity to show it [to my outgoing] A2 students.

They said they liked the Layout and use of colour – compatible with the other textbooks they like, and they quickly found the Edward Snowden and NSA sections and were very engaged in the opposing arguments on each.

I liked the use of pseudo-code.
