        Useful revision book and CD.
        CD and book sold seperately allowing for each to be charged at a maximum price. Most CD/book collections are around £12. This cost over £ 34.00. And the book was sent without the CD, so was forced to then buy CD.
        Exploiting education-shame!

        Good to have tests to prepare the students for the exam
        There need to be MORE tests for each year! Also, the dictations seem to be harder than the actual exams. My students get demoralised at how badly they do in the tests!
