What people say...

Fantastic book – concise, informative and great use of images for explaining methods and processes.

Mr Jon Phillips. Design and Technology Teacher, Hereford Cathedral School

The PowerPoints were relevant, linked directly to the text book and were clear to follow with a superb teacher guide to help. Homework sheets, video clips and exam resources really brought the course up to date and feedback from students is excellent, the new intake is the greatest in 20 years!
