3.0 out of 5 stars Needs more mock tests, 21 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality clips, about 60 hazard perception (of the kind you will encounter in the actual test) and another 40 odd which ask you a multiple choice question during the clip, which will help your general knowledge about hazards. There is only one (10 question) mock test, and you keep doing the same one over and over again to improve your score. Multiple 14 question mock tests would have been useful, not just one 10 question one.

Good practice which will help you pass your hazard perception test, but not great value really.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, solid bed, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good, solid bed, suitable for full-grown adults and not just children (like some beds with wooden slats are). I'm over 14 stone and it supports me well enough, it is great for the spare room.

The two supports that provide extra strength to the middle of the bed rail did not come pre-drilled or with any screws in my case, but I was able to rectify this with a bit of drilling and four long screws from my own stock. A small quibble for a 75.00 bed frame made with quality wood, so just one star knocked off for this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection of 555 timer projects, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This contains a good collection of projects with accompanying curcuit schematics, along with an introduction and technical information for this highly versatile IC. It's a little old-fashioned in style, and you can find shed-loads of 555 projects for free on the Web, but for 2.99 it's a nice little book to have. The 555 timer is an excellent chip for the electronics hobbyist beginner to build breadboard projects around.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much info here, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This describes various components and tools etc. and how to identify them, but very little about what they do, and certainly nothing about putting any example circuits together: you won't find any projects here. A slim volume of not very much. You would be better off with Electronics for Dummies or similar more comprehensive introduction to the subject.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor choice of courier, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was 9.50 when I started a few months ago but has been creeping up gradually. Last delivery was a debacle due to them using Yodel as couriers, so I have cancelled any further orders. I do not want Yodel in my life.

Cats love the food but am forced to buy elsewhere so I can rely on it being delivered.

1.0 out of 5 stars What is large?, 4 April 2014
Not sure what large is, it's a vague and relative term. In Tesco these are 3 for a tenner if they're the 196g ones, and the free mug is only 250ml, so okay for kids and espressos but not for a thirsty adult. Are these bigger, as the price suggests? Dunno, doesn't say.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good futon, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Smart and stylish, quality build, and just four screws involved in asssembley. Prompt delivery too. It's comfortable to sleep on for a futon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and nasty, 12 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I managed to snap part of it in two while trying to work out how to swivel the camera around, as initially it was stuck facing downwards. Perhaps I was a little heavy-handed, but to be honest this felt cheap and nasty from when I got it out of the box. You get what you pay for, and I'll try a more sturdy model - maybe one that comes with instructions too - next time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed, 2 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered size 10.5 but received 11s, which fit more like a 10 to be honest. Nature of stitching makes them look grubby after a couple of wears.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great films, but many butchered into 4:3 ratio, 5 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's nothing I can add about the brilliance of Hitchcock, and just how much pleasure I and many others get from these films. Fourteen of his later works - though including Saboteur (1942) and Shadow of a Doubt(1943), and missing North by Northwest - are included here, and at less than a couple of quid each I can't really complain...

...However, I will complain. Many of the later twelve films have had their original aspect ratio butchered into what was the standard TV ratio (and old 'Academy' ratio) of approx. 4:3, which seems a little outdated now that most of us have 16:9 televisions which can happily accommodate a 1:1.185 ratio (slightly letter-boxed, admittedly). So you can either watch these 'pillar box' style, or use your TV's 'panoramic' view to stretch out the sides (which also chops a little off the top and bottom). Either way you are not seeing the actual films Hitchcock made.

If I was paying ten pounds each for these films I would be more perturbed, but for the price I wouldn't feel justified in knocking off more than one star over this. These are, after all, some of the best films ever made. I only wish I could get to see them at the cinema more often, which is where they are at their very best.
