I am studying to be a CS teacher and using this book to get an idea of how the subject content can be presented in a student's book.

I am not happy with this book. On the plus side it is well written and nicely presented. But I have found incorrect information and poorly understood concepts in the book. For example the Spiral Methodology on page 155 is nothing like the actual Spiral Model.

It will help the student revise the subject. But beware it will not assist in a clear understanding of the subject.

The book is well written and the concepts are generally explained well using simple examples. However, if you look at the specification ([...]) many importance details that are part of the course are omitted, or mentioned briefly.

This means much of the book's content is irrelevant when it comes to this actual GCSE, although of course it increases the knowledge of anyone reading it, but that is not necessarily the point of a textbook meant to be tailored to one course.

So bear that in mind, if you go through this book, not only will you miss out some very important details but many details like 'binary trees' that are explained are in detail are not required for this course.

A great learning aid for anyone beginning to study computer science easy to read and understand and good explanations, but there is some incorrect coding examples for PHP so you will need to keep an eye on those parts

Very poor structure. Over complicated and confusing book. By the other book that is yellow and has specification points clearly laid out. This covers useless information not needed for gcses and so is very hard to revise from. Would not recommend it at all.

Bought for son because he felt new computer science teacher did not explain as well as his previous one. He is finding it a useful back-up, as its not a subject his parents can help with!

The revision book helped a lot and it is very clear to understand. Its quite expensive but worthy for the price.
