Passing the ICT Skills Test (Achieving QTS Series) by Clive Ferrigan
30 of 30 people found the following review helpful
If you are worried about passing the ICT skills test - this is the book for you. Although I felt relatively confident about email and word processing, I wasn't so sure about spreadsheets and databases. This little book really helped build my confidence in these areas as it covers all the essential knowledge you need to pass the test. It also lets you know exactly what to expect in the test and contains a detailed checklist to tick off the skills as you learn them. When you've ticked all the boxes on the list - you know you are ready for the test. This really boosts your confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant book, 27 Jan 2004
Assessment is at the core of social work. If you want to get to grips with it - this is the book for you. It covers all the theory without getting bogged down in it. It then shows how this theory relates to practise. It has nice little extra features like chapters summaries and activities which help deepen your understanding.
If you want to be a successful social worker you have to have 1st rate assessment skills. This book will help you on your way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction!, 13 Jan 2004
My main degree is in History, but I decided to do a module in psychology. This book was a great help, because it doesn't assume any previous knowledge. It covers all the history, major theories and areas of debate in psychology. If one part really grabs your attention and you would like to learn more, there are further reading suggestions. If you are doing an introductory psychology module, this should be the first book you buy!
