Absolutely useless

Bethany Cunningham

Matt Marr, what seems to be the problem? 

I did the exam last year (2012) so maybe the specification has changed since then but I am sorry it didn't help you. 

I worked really hard on this as you can tell from the eighteen pages of notes, I would like if you put a reason why you thought it was "useless", many people have found it useful as I have been rated five stars although your rating has pushed me to three.

I got an A* so these notes are not that useless, I would definitely like any comments. 

If anyone else desperately needs notes then could you have a look maybe you will not find it useless, if you find a problem, please comment  below.

Thank you!

selma

i made u go up half a star :)

Bethany Cunningham

Ha! Thank you Selma.

Hannah

thank you!

Bethany Cunningham
