IGCSE ICT Practical Workbooks
(and tutorials)
 
The IGCSE ICT practical examination is worth 60% of the total grade.

The sets of workbooks and tutorials on this page are designed to help you prepare/revise/practice the practical elements of the course.

Each workbook should be used in conjunction with the practice practical exam papers section of this website. Each workbook contains contents pages to help you find the help you require.

To use the contents you must press Ctrl on the keyboard and then click the link you wish to visit.


Word of Warning!!

The practical elements of the course require you to remember quite a bit of content. There is no escaping from the fact that you need to practice, practice and then practice some more all of the skills discussed in each workbook.

You will not pick up the skills needed to be successful by only trying one past exam paper. You should work through as many as you possibly can.
