Just noticed the following on the main website....
I have had the privilege of trying out this CD.....
My reservations are still that most exams are still pen and paper. in addition the child will have to have jot notes down to work out all the code like questions.
However.....there is without a doubt a place for this in the market of 11 plus exams.........
Some areas are already using interactive style exams
In the main, most children see the computer as FUN, therefore the child will probably be more affable towards PRACTICING! [ I know for a fact my children would have preferred this style of learning]
Practicing via the computer will give the child a break from pen and paper.
Whether the exam in your area is CD based or not...the child is still learning.
Questions can be revisited without all that rubbing out!
As far as I am concerned any practice, whichever medium, MUST be good.
My proviso would be that you cannot use the CD alone, it MUST be used in conjunction with good old fashioned pen and paper.
I will certainly add it to my list for Bucks.
