OCR Computing for GCSE Student's Book by Sean O'Byrne, George Rouse

OCR Computing for GCSE adopts an approach that provides comprehensive coverage of the specification, providing a cohesive and fully contextualised guide through the key content and skills demanded by all aspects of the course - Develops students understanding of the theoretical aspects of the course and the skills they need to display in the exam - Provides strategies for teachers and students for tackling the practical elements of the course - Covers the key aspects of planning, developing, testing, and re-evaluating and modifying solutions for the practial investigation - Supports students as they develop the skills to demonstrate programming techniques including designing a coded solution to a problem, creating a coded solution and testing a solution


A systematic walk through the specification couples good explanation of the theory content with interesting facts that will grab the mind of readers...O'Byrne and Rouse have done a good job. They clearly understand that a new specification needs an attention-grabbing text, to help it succeed. A good balance of prose and diagrams is also maintained. computingteacher.edublogs.org
