Reviewer's comment on Intermediate Options text


This book is written by a team of authors, all of whom were responsible for writing specifications for the OCR/AQA Options Units for Intermediate and Advanced ICT. Series Editor, Jenny Lawson, has worked on the IT GNVQ almost from its inception and, for many years, was the Chief Examiner for GNVQ ICT at all three levels -Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced GNVQ (now AVCE), including Part One for Foundation and Intermediate level GNVQ IT. Peter Bradshaw is Jenny's successor as Chief Examiner for GNVQ IT Part One at Foundation and Intermediate level, and he and the other members of this team of authors are experienced teachers and examiners of GNVQ/AVCE ICT.
