OCR GCSE Computer Science Student eBook

Updated 10/11/18 - Corrected CSV user authentication worked example on pages 663-670, adding line =
line.rstrip("\n") before splitting each csv line into a list of values.

This free eBook is a compilation of the lesson resources that I have written over the past two years whilst teaching this course. Besides written content and diagrams to explain concepts, I have included links to many YouTube videos that will allow pupils to go deeper into topics and learn in ways other than just reading. You should be able to simply click on the image on all “Video” pages to link to the appropriate YouTube page straight from the PDF.

If you do find this eBook useful, you may be interested in my YouTube channel where I have produced a number of original videos to explain Computer Science topics as well as put together playlists of great videos from other YouTubers: https://www.youtube.com/mrawdimmick

Finally, if you are teaching GCSE Computer Science then you might be interested in my online Python course hosted on repl.it. As a “community” classroom you can point your students directly to it for some self-learning or you can “Import and Teach” the class into your own Repl.it Classroom for you to invite your pupils to join so that you can track their progress and provide feedback on their work: https://repl.it/community/classrooms/29589
