Help with textbooks for CCEA AS/A2

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by emb1, Mar 1, 2011.

  1. Hi everyone, does anyone know a good textbook to go with the CCEA AS or A2 database units? I've been using Heathcote's Successful Projects in Access but the school is upgrading to Access 2007 and I can't find an updated version so I'd love to know your thoughts on what's a good resource. ( I think the CCEA database projects might be similar to the AQA ones but I'm not sure.

    I know I am plugging a paid resource here but you might find the video tutorials on a dvd store database build, that accompany the chalkboards that I have done, t be rather useful. Chalkbaords are for WJEC but there is bound to be some significant overlap with other baords too.

  5. Thanks for your advice everyone, I'll definitely check these out
     
  6. Sadly, CCEA pretend resources written for their specification do not exist, unless one of their own people wrote it. Almost all schools that teach it use Real World ICT - http://www.colourpointeducational.com/more_details.php?id=227
    Unfortunately it only does theory. The Heathcote books, as well as Barbara Wilson's ICT projects books are widely used.
