Lots of examples to practice with which was good. Good to get ‘hands-on’ practise in classrooms.

Interesting topic and scenarios. Instead of lots of sheets which we have to make and lose track of, one prepared bound booklet with everything would be easier. Can save time and less confusion. Some of the exam questions were more complex than the examples.
