These publications for the Oxford, Cambridge and RSA (OCR) course are packed with information, charts, work sheets and planners. The pupil book contains all the information needed to cover the short course, and if following the full course, extra material is supplied in the teacher's file.
A useful addition to the pupil's book is a "key points" section, handy for helping lower ability pupils, or for quick revision. Aspects of information and communication technology and industrial practices are highlighted, indicating how they have been employed or offering opportunities for further investigation.
Cross-referencing is used extensively between both publications to ensure appropriate coverage.
