Absolutely love book and CD Better and much cheaper than grinds Would recommend to every student studying DCG Covers all the Leaving Cert DCG course and very easy to use.

I am very impressed with the applied graphics workbook and e book. The topics are developed in detail and the 3d graphic models are excellent for explaining and visualising the key concepts . The students enjoy completing the worksheets and being able to access the E book on their home PC's.
