Reviews

'An ideal starting point for planning review lessons or for One to One tuition ideas. Good range of texts all linked to APP statements.'

.co.uk 'Overall, I love the concept of these books. As a school which is supposed to be leading on APP, I would find them very useful in terms of supporting individual students with curricular targets.

'The Chapter Opener, Check Your Progress and Level Booster Features are wonderful'
