Key Notes: These pocket size revision aids help ensure students have understood the most important parts of the syllabus. They are diagrammatic, concise and memorable!
Trial exams These practice exams are for students to gauge whether their understanding is correct.
Student notes These notes, which are given out in class, save the students from having to write down everything! The notes cover the core areas of the syllabus in an enlightening and interactive manner. They include lots of diagrams and mnemonics to make it a more interesting experience for the student (and the tutor!)
Lecturer’s guide This is the same set of students notes as above, but with comments in for lecturers and worked examples, so saving the lecturer lots of preparation time! They give relevant examples where theory needs more explaining and show the lecturers how to teach the topics, if they are unsure.
Powerpoint slides These slides complement the student notes and make the material come to life, by including more case studies and step by step ways to solving problems. Included in the slides are comments for tutors, to help them make the class more interactive.
