Following the schedule I notice various purchasable items recommended whcih I shall obtain, but some of the recommended gloucs items are not mentioned in the schedule (Walsh/Learning labs/first past the post/voc builder) .
If anyone has any comments if I need those please do say !!
They are all "optional extras". Walsh are pretty tough, and should really only be used as lesson material, not as full tests; Learning Labs are fine (mid-range difficulty), but the vocab is a bit quirky in places; First Past the Post are new-ish, so don't feature in Patricia's programme, etc, etc.
See how you get on with the main materials Patricia recommends and then use these items to top-up if you need to. You don't have to cover all the suggested materials by any means!
