As I teach to the AQA syllabus for A level I was just looking at our main text book written by Nelson Thornes. They advertise online help and extra resources under the name "Kerboodle". I've just had a look at the website but I was wondering if anyone subscribes to this and whether it's worth it. The website isn't overly helpful in showing me what I'd get of the money.

We subscribed to this early on. We had lots of technical problems in developing individual log-ins for the students which between them our technicians and Kerboodle's people couldn't seem to sort out, much to my frustration. As a result we ended up wasting a year's subscription and we haven't bothered again, even though we use the Nelson Thorne textbooks for GCSE. I must admit that my memories of the content are a bit hazy but I seem to recall that I wasn't that bowled over. They have probably developed it significantly since then. They don't seem to promote the system as heavily as they once did.

I got suckered into subscribing to Kerboodle when it first came out. In the end, I found it pretty useless; it may have improved since, of course.
