Reviews

Praise for the previous edition:

Can I congratulate you on the BTEC book, it's great. We have ordered 70 books and one Teacher Pack. The whole department were in agreement that it was the best we have seen and is going to be really useful and the teachers guide is going to save us time and energy. Everyone sends a big thank you. Science Department, Medina High School, Isle of Wight

The teacher pack offers some very good and useful suggestions for approaches to the delivery and assessment of these units. Some excellent scenarios are suggested and the encouragement to utilise some local aspects and issues is very good...I am sure that many centres will find the teacher guidance very useful as the pack has paid good attention to the unit content and assessment requirements for each unit and has provided some useful factual background with reference to other resources such as web sites, etc. An Edexcel reviewer commenting on the Teacher Pack
