Electricity [DVD] [2015]
Electricity [DVD] [2015]
Dvd ~ Agyness Deyn
Price: £13.40

4.0 out of 5 stars Has the power to shock, 26 April 2015
This review is from: Electricity [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I thought this was a very good watch indeed. I've never heard of Agyness Deyn and would not have questioned her ability as an actor, she put in a great all round performance.
She plays a woman from the North of England who embarks on a journey to try and find her long lost brother in the seedy dangerous streets of old London town. She has a form of epilepsy which is profoundly debilitating which is one of a number of factors which dictates her vulnerability along with the emotional and psychological scars she carries from a traumatically abusive childhood. It's quite tense, often disturbing, it's an independent production and has a real constrained budget feel about it but also has a free reign to explore issues and experiences often overlooked. I liked it. It has an evolving story line, great acting and a real dark edge to it. Well worth catching sometime though don't walk in hoping for a feel good all issues addressed film as this is not that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful, 25 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really liked this one, I'd say it's one of the better, clearer laid out practice guides on the 11 plus. A good range of questions, clear instructions and explanations. Good practicing opportunity for 3D shapes and the like to develop that more abstract way of looking at forms. An excellent guide all round.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good guide, 25 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very useful like most of the CEM range. Contains two sets of tests though as stated not taken from past papers. The type of questions though are representative and it is a good addition if you already have the first practice test book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice touches, 25 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This verbal reasoning book has a lot of nice touches. The progress chart is good as is the section for parents. I'd just say that the overall presentation could have been a tad more helpful, it's not always as clearly laid out as it maybe could be. Very recommended as a practice tool though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good practice paper, 25 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A good range of practice papers for 11 plus. Quite rigourous in part but fortunately all the answers are contained in the back. a good representation of the type of questions asked in the verbal reasoning, non-reasoning, maths etc exams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Effectively simple, 23 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A simple idea that works very well. I did start off my initial review for this by describing the set-up process, but it was quite a large paragraph and it is far easier to do it rather than have to explain how to do it. Just connect the relevant part on the opposing side of the door to yourself so that the door pulls shut against the frame and you have it.
You can do good exercises on it. I do actually have a fancier more expensive variation on this but the principle is largely the same and this sling trainer enables you to undertake some good stretching and muscle tension exercises. There are really only two doors I can utilise for this, both at opposite ends of a short passage way, that's the trade off, most doors open into rooms rendering them unsuitable for this equipment.
It comes with a fairly comprehensive manual which has helpful pics of the exercises it suggests, some exercises are better than others but there's enough contained therein to keep you busy. There's also a bag to keep it all in.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit flat, 22 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I didn't take to this workbook as well as I did to most of the others. It annoyed me in particular that you need to acquire a separate answer book to accompany this guide and I found it all a little repetative and flat. It's ok but I suspect there are better guides which cover the same angles out there.

Price: £4.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Instructive learning, 22 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Excellent study guide. It covers, I would say, two pivotal areas in particular in punctuation and grammar with the addition of spelling which I'm not saying is any less important but I've found with some children and young people that the rules surrounding grammar and punctuation are often more difficult to grasp.
It's a really good guide. I went to a state comprehensive which didn't touch upon grammar and I've found this component particularly instructive. i like the clear layout and the explanations are clear and personable. a worthwhile purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not including the answers is a minus, 22 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's a good practice workbook to have as part of a set though I would have preferred the answers to have been at the back of the book instead of in an entirely separate workbook as is the case here.
The questions/problems are pitched at the right age appropriate level and it's very thourough in its coverage of the subject matter. Just needed those answers.

5.0 out of 5 stars For 11 plus plus, 22 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An excellent maths book/guide. Although it is 11 plus I have used a lot of the material with adult learners (well young people age from 16/17 to 20) who either failed maths the first time around or never attended in the first place.
It's really clearly laid out with everything explained clearly also. The problems are actually quite taxing but all the answers are contained in the end section of the book. I'd really recommend it as a starter point for anyone regardless of age if you want to work towards a maths qualification second time round. I saw the content of a maths employability course and it wasn't radically different from anything contained in this guide.
