3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but the extras are not that great, 14 Feb 2013

This review is from: Driving Test Success All Tests Premium 2013/14 Edition (PC) (DVD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There are an awful lot of parts to this package. Some are more worthwhile than others. The Theory Test and Hazard Perception Test parts are good. There's lots of practice to help you get ready. The Practical Driving Lessons part is less useful - it helps you understand what you'll learn in your driving lessons, which is fair enough. There's a computer-based version of The Highway Code - it's a bit awkward to navigate around, but it has the information you need. The Mock Driving Test is fair enough, but the Braking Distance Simulator, while interesting to fiddle with, is hard to relate to reality. Show Me, Tell Me helps you to prepare for the pre-drive technical checks part of the test. Learn on the Go is disappointing: it consists of the ability to "generate" 102 MP3 tracks that you can then copy to your music player so you can learn and practice when you're out and about. Except you need to "generate" the tracks one at a time, which is ridiculously and unnecessarily fiddly.

All of the components listed above are also included in the cheaper Driving Test Success All Tests New 2013 Edition (PC) version. The extras you get with this version are a DVD that tells you how to look after your car and a slim booklet for you to read and keep with you in the car giving emergency information and checks. I'm not totally convinced that these two extras are worth having - although it is pretty important to know how to maintain your car!

The next version up from this one has a few other extra bits that are rather good, so if you're going for a premium version, the Driving Test Success the Complete Learner Driver Suite New 2013 Edition (PC) might be a better bet. If you don't need those extra bits, the All Tests version is a more economical option.
