An excellent text specifically tailored for the AS course, September 2000
Reviewer: J Heppell from England
Based on Heathcote's standard A level text this version has a few unchanged chapters, however it is widely updated with new examples, case studies and exam questions. The description of database design is particularly clear. The questions with worked answers and examiners comment at the end of each section are a valuable resource for teachers and students. General additions include: a greater emphasis on the Internet and web connectivity, protocols, security and encryption. Good value, certainly required reading for AS candidates.
