    hiya people

    im doing this course this year and i have the exams coming up
    does any one know of any good sites to help revise for all the units
    im doing the materials, components and systems exam
    and the design and society

    also if any one has any good sites about POS displayes that would be useful

    i have the edexcel book and i am reading it now but some useful websites would be good or if any of you may have past pappers please post

    thanks sophie

    They couldn't have chosen a worse topic than "P-O-S display units". Boring, open-ended and generally silly. When will examiers learn?

    Suprisingly in the GCSE book (we had no books for AS level so we're given the GCSE books - that's poor) so anyway, I have the GCSE book for the EDexcel Cource. There is, if I remember correctly, a good section on making the nets for boxes, which is perfect for the cheapo dsplay stands. If I find anything I'll give you a shout, but I havn't looked into this section in detail yet because of other commitments: Other exams, faffing, guitar, bands, friends etc.

    Good luck.

    tell me about it, its so boring i cant motivate my self

    how is the other units going have u got stuff for that like links or example pappers

    sophie good luck to u to

    Hey Soph,

    How'd it go? I did the same exams as you yesterday, except CAD/CAM instead of design/society - wasn't that mat, sys paper annoying!

    And as for the design paper next tuesday, I'm stuck with finding POS stuff as well, though probably more useful finding different themes they could give us - probably something like: cosmetics, games, music, cd, eductation toy/book - something graphicy.

    Oh yeah -

    I've just posted me guide to the UNIT 6 exam:
