Review by TPauSilver
I should comment first that I can't say anything about the accuracy of the information given as I've read this coming up to starting my PGCE (in a week or so 0_0). That said, I did find this book helpful. I picked this over the other offerings in the shop as it seems a lot more...relaxed. As well as telling you the things you NEED to know it gives you a lot of advice. Big things like tips on classroom managment to things like, when you first to into a school make sure you ask before you take a seat in the teacher's room. I very much liked the informal approach, it makes the entire thing less daunting and makes you feel more prepaired. What I didn't like about this book, it's trying very hard to be everything to everyone and, in such, at times spreads itself a little thin. For example, one of the big things I'm worried about is planning lessons and overall schemes of work and it gave very little time to thinks like this but had a large section on IT which was, frankly, already out of date and more or less useless to anyone who is literate in use of the internet and computers. I also kind of resented the fact that I spent so much money on it and it spent so long telling me things I didn't need to know.
