Does what it says on the tin
on 27 August 2009
DVD comes with revision questions, mock exams and also history of results so you can see you're improving, including ratings on type of questions so you can see where you're good and weak...only problem is that questions are not in the catagory that you would assume.
Doesn't help that I think the whole theory test is waste of time and proves nothing apart from making the governemt some more money, however this is a bit of biscuit taker when this DVD should come with hazard perception as well.
Theory test, whether for Bike or Car is really easy and this DVD isn't really needed, all questions are common sense (apart from a few, where the writers of the theory test should be shot as they are simply putting in incorrect or stupid questions in) and anyone with a 10th of a brain can answer these questions.
People should pass question bit of theory no problem, and if you can't - you shouldn't be driving - end of story. The problem is the hazard perception bit of the test where even people that can clearly drive and have been for years fail the theory (where car drivers that have driven for years then decide to get motorbike fail the theory for example - like me, but luckily I passed first time even with this stupid hazard thing).
Hazard Perception is flawed and the government shouldn't be allowed to program any software, anyone normal will see the hazard and then click, but they don't get any points because they see hazard too early. Hazard perception should be ripped from test completely but you want to pass, do what I did in theory test hazard perception:
Everytime you see hazard click and then click in 1 second intervals 4 times to make sure you get points...worked for me.
Advise on this product:
- Don't bother getting this unless you're a simpleton and worrier, question part is a joke and anyone can pass with common sense....if you don't - give up driving. This DVD does it's job though and gives you revision and mock exams.
- Spend money on hazard perception DVD and perfect that until you work out how to get system to know you saw the hazard properly. If you don't score top points - don't worry that you're rubbish, you're not, you just didn't click enough to let system know you saw it!
Last point to show you what I mean about this theory test thing being a joke:
Real Question on DVD and in Actual Test:
You're at approaching a zebra crossing and you want to indicate to the pedestrians waiting that you are letting them cross, what should you do?
1. Flash your lights
2. Honk your horn
3. Wave them across with Left hand
4. Wave them across with Right hand
Ok, they say the answer is 4. Right hand.
Now this is a joke.
Point number one: They preach you should never wave or indicate to anyone to cross, go or anything else, so this question contradicts everything they say. So as far as I'm concerned all answers are wrong!
Point 2: Even if you ignore the first point...This is motorbike theory, if on a motorbike you wave someone to cross in front of you...you need your right arm to use brake lever...so as far as they're concerned I should wave them across and then run them over because I can't brake as I'm too busy waving them across!! Absolute stupidity from our government...we have monkeys in charge.
