5.0 out of 5 stars Studying for NVQ/Diploma 2 29 Mar 2012
By Carlo
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have found this book very informative. It is clear and direct to the point. It follows the curriclum precisely and has obviously been put together by a very thorough and professional team. It contains aditional information that other more well known books (like the one below) on the same topics skimp over. Therefore it leaves a student like me with all the information i need for each unit with out having to do additional research .If you need an all in one book then this is the one for you. If like me the financial cost is less inportant than obtaining the diploma then buying more than one book on the same subject like (HSC diploma 2, Yvonne Nolan)helps to simplify the study and understanding of this subject even more.

This book like all the others does not cover some of the additional units that are required in this diploma so beware. Even though it is an all in one book the course is not easy. It still takes a lot of time and commitment a lot of hard work and getting help from a good tutor is essential in order to succeed.
