3.0 out of 5 stars It didn't meet my expectations., 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Applied AS/A Level ICT with CD-ROM (Cambridge International Examinations) (Paperback)
I gave it three stars because it seems like the theoric and practical parts don't have a continuation - they don't seem like one, the type of language and the level of understanding required in both of them are not the same. The theoric part is accessible and is a good resource for the exam, but the practical part, compared to the IGCSE ICT book written by the same author (Graham Brown), is far less detailed and doesn't explain the tasks step by step. I just bought it because is endorsed by Cambridge for the only purpose of sitting the AS/A Levels exam.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor book, 2 Oct 2013

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Applied AS/A Level ICT with CD-ROM (Cambridge International Examinations) (Paperback)
I must agree with the previous reviewer. The book is short on detail in the practical sections. It is also full of factual error and total anachronisms such as payroll systems using sequential files. Every time satellites are mentioned it is factually incorrect. The 5 layer network model does not exists anywhere outside of this book. The mark schemes contain word for word copy/pastes of the contents of this book, strongly suggesting parrot fashion regurgitation of the book is requried for the exams. In short, a poor course. The book is now 5 years old and is becoming out of date.
