AS-Level Maths Edexcel Complete Revision & Practice
AS-Level Maths Edexcel Complete Revision & Practice
by Richard Parsons
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful book that gives a good summary of the course, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is pretty helpful! Don't expect it to be able to just teach you AS Mathematics, a lot of your own work is required to do well, but this book helps to give a summary most of the key topics, offers useful exercises and will help round out any misunderstandings you have about the topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a brilliant record, 17 July 2014

This review is from: Challengers (Audio CD)
Lovely album. There are some truly great songs on this record, my favourite being "Challengers", "Go Places", "Myriad Harbor" and "Entering White Cecilia". This album is worth a purchase, the songs are magnificent, don't miss out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, if a little fidgety, 17 July 2014
Works really well! A little fidgety to get into place at first, but the price is good, and the sound with it on is great, definitely worth buying one of these if you're serious about recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars You get what it says on the tin - reliable guitar plectrums, 17 July 2014

You get what it says on the tin! If nylon guitar picks is what you need, this is a great deal. They play well, they sound good with my guitar, and none have broken yet, which is pleasing. Grab them before the price shoots up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for convenience, quite good otherwise, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These earphones are fun. No, they aren't the best piece of kit you'll ever buy - they're a tad "gimmicky" in premise, and the sound quality isn't perfect. Annoyingly, the ear pieces are also a little heavy, but this can all be ignored.
For the price, the earphones are good, and the Bluetooth element is "fun" and convenient. They're great for exercise so the wire isn't constantly hitting your chest and knocking out the earbuds too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unmissable, 17 July 2014
I was not expecting to like this album. I'd only heard Modest Mouse's softer songs (like "Little Motel", and "The World At Large") and was expecting more of the same, but what I got was some heavy-rock meets indie-pop music, but the sound of this album is far less generic than I may be making it seem. Modest Mouse have a unique sound, explored well in this album. Each song is incredible in its own right; if you don't like it at first, try it again in a few days. The nautical theme is definitely noticeable but matches the songs well. This goes up their with one of my favourite albums I've bought over my lifetime! Don't miss your chance to buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant record from Frightened Rabbit, 17 July 2014
This is a great record from Frightened Rabbit. While some say it doesn't quite meet the standards of The Midnight Organ Fight, whether that's true or not does not detract from how well written and performed the songs on this album are. From the catchy, upbeat "Late March, Death March" to the more chilling "Nitrous Gas", this album is worth the price, and then some.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping reading experience, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gone Girl (Paperback)
Definitely my favourite book of the year. So magnificently written, and thoroughly gripping. I love how the chapters alternate between Nick and Amy, it's a great writing technique. I also really like the short little paragraphs about the "five senses", I'm not sure why, they're just brilliant short moments in the book (among many). I don't want to say much more than that, because you should enjoy experiencing this book for yourself.


Wii U Basic Just Dance, Wii Party & Mario Kart 8 Pack
Wii U Basic Just Dance, Wii Party & Mario Kart 8 Pack

5.0 out of 5 stars The best deal you'll find for a new Wii U console, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best deal you're gonna find on any site for a new Wii U console with games.

£239.99 for the 8GB console, 3 of the best-selling games and NintendoLand is daylight robbery (us robbing them)!
In fact, with your copy of Mario Kart 8, if you register it with Club Nintendo before the end of July (google "Club Nintendo Mario Kart 8 promotion"), you can get yourself a free download of another best-selling Wii U game (I chose New Super Mario Bros U).

The graphics and speed of the console are a phenomenal step up from the last system, and the multiplayer features of all the games make them really enjoyable. I was worried the GamePad would be a massive gimmick too, but it's really not - it's a magnificent addition and you'll really enjoy getting to grips with it. Couldn't recommend this deal more!

5.0 out of 5 stars This film will exceed your expectations., 17 July 2014
This review is from: Mistaken for Strangers [DVD] (DVD)
This film is really, really great.

If you're a fan of the National in any way (which I most certainly am), you're in for a treat, but even if you're not, you're bound to enjoy this surprising little documentary. My parents came with me to watch it at the cinema with the live Q&A afterwards, and they barely knew of the National or their music, but still preach Mistaken For Strangers for be one of the best films of the year so far.

It's enjoyable for those who don't know the band because the film isn't really centered around them, but rather a guy named Tom and his older brother Matt, the lead singer of the National. For die-hard National fans, don't go into this documentary expecting a "National tour movie", because that isn't what you'll get. The film explores their relationship from an early age, when Matt would take Tom to films like Predator, sparking Tom's love for the film industry, and how they grew apart as Matt became a rockstar. The film is sweet, genuine, honest and also hilarious.

Definitely buy this DVD, if not just for the film, but also for its extensive special features. It certainly is my personal favourite documentary of many, many years.
