This book will fill a gap in the market for both students and their parents.
It explains clearly what support is available in further education.
It provides good, concise information.
I especially liked the revision template and the information in the appendices on how to use the technologies that students often have on their phones. I think the book will also be useful to teachers, careers advisors and other professionals.
It is well written and easy to read and understand.
