Essential ICT GCSE: Student's Book for WJEC by Stephen Doyle

Giving students all they need to achieve their potential during the course, this book is designed to help them transfer their understanding of the subject into improved exam performance.


The use of real life picture are helpful to see what you are relating to; I noticed some cartoons as well, maybe a few more of those would be a good idea to make it less serious, plus people with reading difficulties would perhaps find more pictures necessary? I think that there was good use of print screen so you know what you are looking for when you have it up on the computer screen also you can see what yours is supposed to look like if it doesnt, you can find what you need to change to make it look identical. There are good colour contrasts throughout the book using soft colours; the publisher hasnt overpowered the actual information and taken any focus away, unlike some other books which use bold, vibrant colours which arent helpful or necessary. The boxes make it a lot easier to read as it breaks up the text so students dont lose focus.
