This focused and comprehensive text from Learning Matters is written specifically for TAQA trainee assessors and internal quality assurers. The content covers all three assessor and all three internal quality assurance units and all chapters are cross referenced to the standards. Easy-to-read and clearly structured, the text is accessible and includes activities and examples throughout to help trainees link theory with practice. TAQA trainees will find this text both an invaluable resource for their course and a useful handbook to take into practice.

I have the printed version of this book. I purchased the Google eBooks version thinking I would benefit from having it on my nexus. I was wrong.
Many of the examples used are tables, which are
two small to be read on screen. Increasing the font’s size doesn’t make much difference. (When I examined the book on my laptop, after purchasing it for my Nexus 7, it’s the same. The tables look like they’ve been converted to Jpg images?)
I don’t know whether this is because of the limitations of Google books or if it’s the way the eBook has been produced (I suspect the latter).
I wouldn’t recommend purchasing the Google books version for tablets and definitely not for smartphones as you can’t read the info in the table examples or scale any of the images.
There are two versions a Google eBooks version priced at £15.59 and a Kindle edition from Amazon at £15.29 (with the paperback being £16.99 no incentive then to save paper then by purchasing the eBook versions).
I can’t vouch for the kindle version, but if you’re thinking of buying this to read on your Nexus tablet, don’t bother, you’ll waste your money.
I will be emailing the publishing house and author my thoughts, what’s the point of having technology when it doesn’t do what it should!
