Exam Grade Booster: GCSE German
Exam Grade Booster: GCSE German
by Liam Porritt
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Key advice and great tips to help with GCSE German, 28 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a great resource for anyone studying GCSE German and exactly what I had been looking for to help explain German grammar. The guidelines are straight forward; focusing on what is needed for the exam, explaining clearly how to boost grades and the use of key vocabulary and phrases. I also particularly like the use of acronyms to help students to remember what they need when writing essays and the colour coding, which is used throughout the book, helps to explain and highlight tricky subjects such as word order and adjectival endings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good laptop, but overpriced on Amazon, 14 Jun. 2013
I bought this laptop earlier this year at John Lewis for £800, so this price of £1149 is ridiculous, so I would recommend buying from somewhere else. The laptop itself is very good. The specs are very good, an i7 processor, 8gb ram and the 2gb nvidia graphics mean that it is more than capable of gaming. The screen is also full HD and beats audio is very good. A HDMI socket and 4 usbs as well as an ethernet port are very useful as well. The battery is also very decent for a laptop of this power - I had it on listening to spotify and it lasted for seven hours. However power intensive tasks such as gaming will drain it in about two hours. Windows 8 is a bit of a pain, but I hear microsoft are releasing a major update to sort it out. Overall, this is a great laptop, but look elsewhere, because the RRP is a very good £800. The £1149 listed here is far too much to be paying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable but poor sound, 4 Mar. 2012
These Earphones fit well, and they are comfortable, which is good. However, the sound quality is terrible! Unless you press them against your ear drums, there is no bass whatsoever and they are really tinny. Standard Apple or Sony Ericsson earphones are much better. In fact for around the same price, you can buy Sony over ear headphones (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-MDRZX100B-Fashionable-Headphones-Black/dp/B004MMG38K/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1330880226&sr=8-2) which are almost as good quality as Beats headphones. I personally wouldn't buy these. Go for the Sony's instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 27 Jan. 2012
They arrived within 2 days of ordering (on standard delivery) and they are as good as I'd hoped. They feel strong and sturdy, they are extremely comfortable and most importantly, the sound is great. They are way better than the skullcandy's I had before. They even come with a case for you to store them in! So overall well worth getting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as Sony, 20 Nov. 2011
I bought these headphones a few months back, to replace in-ears. The sound quality is really good, and so is the bass. However, after wearing them for more than half and hour to an hour, they make your ears ache. My brother also bought some Sony MDR-V150 headphones for £5 less, and the sound and bass are better than the skullcandys and they don't make your ears ache. So if I were to recommend one of the two, I'd say that the skullcandys are good, but the Sony headphones are better, and cost less. Buy the Sony headphones instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended!, 30 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Hornby Virgin 125 Train Set (Toy)
I got this for my 10 year old who helped me write this review. This fantastic bright colourful intercity 125 virgin train is perfect for loco lovers from the age of 8 to 80. It is the sort of thing that you will love so much that your mum has to come in at 10 o'clock every night to tell you to stop playing with it! But there is a downside. For example if you rev it up to full speed too quickly the engine sounds like it will blow up. But apart from that it is the best thing a train lover could want. A perfect starter pack with a great looking train, carriages, track and easy to operate controller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but still one of George's best, 30 Dec. 2006
It was probably impossible to follow up such a masterpiece as "All Things Must Pass" (surely one of the top 3 solo Beatles albums ever) and I think LITMW has suffered unfairly in comparrison with George's magnum opus. Indeed, George himself probably realised this as he decided late in the day to drop the original title for this album, "The magic is here again".

Nevertheless, LITMW has much to recommend it on top of which this re-issue has wonderfully crisp sound and benefits from two excellent b-sides from early 1970s singles. The box set was made with care and reminds me of the quality feel attached to the original All Things Must Pass triple album set.

This album has six stand out brilliant tracks - Give Me Love (just gets better on each hearing), The Light that has Lighted The World (wonderful flowing piano perfectly intwined with George's trademark slide guitar and excellent vocal), That Is All (perfectly realised despite several key and timing changes), Living In The Material World (utilises Ringo's best "Get Back" drumming to great effect under a humourous vocal), Don't Let Me Wait Too Long (catchy hit single that never was) and the mystical "Be Here Now". I don't give this album 5 stars because I am not keen on the tracks "Try Some Buy Some" or "Sue Me Sue You Blues" because the first is a too overblown and cachophanous and the second is too one dimensional for my taste. However all the other tracks are good to great in my view and the album has an engaging intimacy that All Things Must Pass lacks which rewards the listener more with each play and each passing year.
