Full Colour, Illustrated PDF Colour Notes

Full colour, illustrated PDF tutorial notes which are carefully worded and appropriately illustrated are an integral part of our courses. Because lectures tend to have an effect which lasts only a short while, particularly if no notes are give out, we believe our handouts are the key to making your newly gained knowledge much more long-lasting. As part of that philosophy you will recieve detailed notes covering the whole course that will both aid learning both while on the course and in the weeks and months afterwards.
