What people say...

I think the units are very good and have saved me hundreds of hours of work, which, after 22 years of teaching, is a blessing.

Mr Phil Andrews. Head of Design and Technology, St Joseph's Catholic High 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.
