4.0 out of 5 stars The only downside is that it's not massively good value for money, 14 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This sandpaper works really well with the electric sander I 'permanently borrowed' from my dad! It performed really well when I used it to sand the door of the study and the surrounding skirting boards and door frame. The only downside is that it's not massively good value for money, as it is quite a short roll for the amount you have to pay. Other than that though it performs well.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am reasonably impressed with these strips as they've been able to tidy away the cables for three cables from my PC monitors from behind a large open Ikea desk that makes no attempt to hide cables! These are better than the velcro cable tidy's that these strips are replacing, and the unit adheres well to the surface to which you're applying it to.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I like this product because it saves me dragging the Dyson out from the house, and that gets a bit thumbs-up from the missus. First of all, the cable is proper lengthy, and I can hoover my whole car with ease when it's plugged in the cig-lighter socket. The suction is not bad either and it can deal with all but the larger bits of debri that collects in the car interior fabric. It was more than able to suck up the dust and mud shed by our helpful(!) labrador although you do need to empty the dust pretty often and bang the filter because the cleaner can loose suction pretty quickly (within 10 minutes I'd estimate). That said, I think this good value for money if you want to give your car a general clean.


Getting a Coding Job For Dummies
Getting a Coding Job For Dummies
by Nikhil Abraham
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.94

4.0 out of 5 stars The book is well written and easy to read, 20 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is a gentle introduction and overview to getting a job as a software engineer/coder. The book is well written and easy to read, and covers development methodologies, programming languages and even how to handle some difficult interview questions. Basic programming languages features are described, but you won't be able to use this book to learn to program, you'll need a dedicated book for that. I would also liked to have seen decent coverage of MVC (Model View Controller) which is an important methodology for creating applications and the book only concentrates on Ruby/Python. There is also a section on Big Data, which is a welcome addition as this is also an increasingly important area.

Although some of it is USA specific, there is some really good advice in here, and I like the interview questions sections and also the section about going into development alone rather than working for someone else, because in my opinion that's an equally valid career path.

Apart from my minor niggles, this is a really good introduction to what it takes to become a software engineer.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an unashamably technical book on the subject of semiconductor materials, full of mathematical equations and highly technical details, and audience for this book will be for people in the field of semiconductors or studying this subject at University. That said, I'm really interested in science and at least some of it is readable by the layman, and the sections that I could understand were really interesting and really well written by someone who has a complete grasp of the current state of the field.

If you're studying or working in this field, I think this will be an invaluable reference, and the specialist knowledge within justifies the high price tag.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As with all the CGP books I've reviewed, this is another good book on the subject and is packed with information and test exam questions, but this is a revision document and not the complete course, The illustrations are very clear and easy to follow. If you're following the questions throughout the book, the answers are provided at the end. The book is really well written and is a good companion for you on the course. That said I prefer the DVD-ROM version of this course which is more interactive and full of video tutorials, which in my opinion makes the subject easier to learn than reading a book. But in isolation, this is still a really good book, and don't let me put you off buying it, especially if you don't have access to a computer. Excellent material for the subject and well recommended.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a comprehensive book on Year one of the Physics A-Level and is packed with information and test exam questions, and contains a lot more informatiion than the revision guide of the same name from CGP. The illustrations are very clear and concise. If you're following the questions throughout the book, the answers are provided at the end of the book. You also get access to the online version of your book which is useful if you have forgotten to pick up your book but are somewhere with access to the internet, which means you have access to all the same information in the book. I find the website a bit clunky though to be honest and not very modern, although it's functional and useful if you haven't got access to the book. If you're taking A-Level Physics this is a great guide to year 1. Excellent material for the subject and well recommended.

This is a good book on the subject of Statistics and is packed with information and test exam questions, The illustrations are very clear and higher paper questions are highlighted. If you're following the questions throughout the book, the answers are provided at the end of the book. A CD-ROM is also supplied with the book which contains practice papers and worked through answers. The CD content is well constructed, easy to use and navigate. If you are taking A-Level Maths then this is a valuable resource.

Excellent material for the subject and well recommended.
