Canada Map by Angela Beazley - Cross Stitch Kit
Canada Map by Angela Beazley - Cross Stitch Kit

5.0 out of 5 stars Canada as you've never seen it before., 4 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This kit has been purchased as a future gift. It is well designed, very clearly presented, with thorough and easu-to-follow instructions. The pattern is a good size so that one does not get lost and can mark off sections already worked. Beautiful colours, great detail, but achievable and most rewarding.

Robust, attractive, durable, smart. Unfortunately, it was not appropriate for the uniform for which we bought it, but we will definitely use it for non-uniform wear.

= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
tHE QUESTIONS ASKED OF THIS PRODUCT ARE UNFAIR. I HAVE GIVEN EACH 5 STARS BUT IN FACT THE BOOK IS GOING TO BE AS MUCH FUN, AS EDUCATIONAL, AS DURABLE AS THE IMPUT CHANELLED INTO IT. THE PRODUCT IS GOOD, BUT THE QUESTIONS DO NOT REALLY APPLY, APART FROM THE "DURABLE" AND i WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO ANSWER THAT ONCE WE HAVE STARTED USING IT. ONE THING THOUGH IS THAT I THINK IT WOULD BE BETTER WITHOUT A SPIRAL - RING SPINE - FINE FOR ADULT USE THOUGH MORE PRECARIOUS FOR LITTLE FINGERS!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, not enough detail, 20 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was much shorter than I expected it to be! It covers all the relevant topics, yet was disappointing as it did not go into much detail at some points.

Undoubtedly useful, but I would not depend on it as your only source of information while doing your AS level!

The highlight of the book was the sample answers with comments - they were REALLY helpful with clear guidance on how to improve. There is at least two for every chapter, which helps with revision. Another good point was the layout of the pages and the actual information on the page - not just endless text, but well spaced out with side bites of information.

So, for anyone specifically doing Edexcel politics, buy it, but get another one, such as "Mastering Politics" (By Palgrave or Macmillan) to augment your knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book!, 20 July 2012
This book is excellent. It is both informative and interesting; it is clearly very well researched. It is very well written - easy to read without being "dumbed down" in any way. It goes in a good level of detail - it doesn't just scratch the surface but it never gets to heavy. It builds a clear picture of the "real" Cameron, but also provides a good deal of comment and analysis of the politics over the last 6 or 7 years, while also dipping into relevant political events of the previous few decades.

I bought it as someone about to start Politics A level, and it has done a great deal to clarify current politics, as well as giving me a stronger foundation on the general workings of politics.

It is very reasonably priced, and comes highly recommended

The whole family has enjoyed watching these DVDs - they are so full of information, have such a careful eye to detail, yet are so easily digestible that it requires discipline to switch off.
