5.0 out of 5 stars Good solid stuff, 17 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some good, meaty advice and guidance in this. I have only dipped in and out so far, as I don't want to be too presumptuous before qualifying, but straightaway, I can see why this is a best-seller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly, but not quite, great. Nicely made, though, 17 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Neat, well made bag from a long-established manufacturer. Swallows my new 17" desktop replacement laptop with room to spare - it would accommodate an 18" machine easily. The second compartment is a bit of a let down - bigger pockets or even a sewn-in zip-up pocket or two for power supply and/or mouse (like my Tucano bag) would have been a nice touch, and wouldn't break the bank during manufacture - I always carry my mobile in a jacket or coat pocket for convenient access anyway, so, to me, provision of two (very) slim pockets for phones in the second compartment is space-wastingly pointless.

It does more or less what it sets out to do, and is nicely made, but could be excellent rather than just good with a bit more thought ironing out storage niggles for accessories and essentials to the machine in the main compartment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, but not the CGI-enhanced practice clips, 17 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The introductory background sections are useful, but I bought this disk last year and the quality of the video clips was somewhat fuzzy - this is how they really used to be, apparently! Also, they couldn't be played at full screen as they were when I sat my Pt 1 ADI assessment. My training school's website had the latest practice versions, which were the vastly improved CGI-enhanced videos - and playable at full screen. I suggest if these are now available in DVD format from the DVSA for practice, that would be a useful backup and much more representative.

That aside, a reasonably priced poduct and helpful for preparation. Try and get later/current versions, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's official, 17 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Proved invaluable during the run-up to my Part 1 ADI theory test, passed last month. This is the official DVSA disk, and presents the practice
questions and the included mock tests in a similar format to that presented for the real thing. The content is spot-on, and I soon felt on very familiar territory in the test room!

Very reasonably priced - overall, excellent value, if an ADI qualification is your choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars one to replace a broken (and fragile) plastic valve on a perfectly serviceable Michelin footpump - a classic case of spoiling th, 17 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading the reviews - thanks, folks - ordered two of these metal cased valves, one to replace a broken (and fragile) plastic valve on a perfectly serviceable Michelin footpump - a classic case of spoiling the ship for a ha'p'th of tar with an otherwise very good pump - the other to replace the (fiddly, thus irritating) screw-in type valve on an electric air pump carried in the car.

The footpump was restored earlier today, literally in a few 5 minutes, to full working order again: I'm about to change the valve on the electric pump, which should make it much easier/quicker to use if needed. Some review questioners asked whether hose clamps are included. Yes, they were with my purchase, which makes it really outstanding value.

An additional bonus: arrived after only two days. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars but a good selection., 29 Sept. 2015

This review is from: Essential Saint-Saëns (Audio CD)
Takes a couple of listens, as some of this I hadn't heard before, but a good selection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth operator, 2 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I particularly wanted the combination of a microfibre tip that was retractable, and this does both. It prevents unnecessary wear on the stylus, and can be clipped into a pocket. The fibre tip works much better than rubber button types I've tried, and as other customers have noted, it glides across a screen almost without friction. It also has a well-made feel in the hand. It's not the cheapest, but at the risk of repeating myself from other reviews, you only get what you pay for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful size, robustly made, excellent value, 16 Mar. 2015

Good sized office-grade stapler, robust metal construction and very good value. Hopefully, should last for years. Turned up well ahead of estimated delivery date, so entirely satisfactory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost invisible protection, 12 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used these before, and can vouch that, if the film is applied properly to the screen, it is all but invisble, and doesn't blur or distort the display at all. It's important to take a bit of time squeezing out any air bubbles with a card squeegee, but this is easily done and worth the effort. Recommended.
