every person entering the ucas system gets this - thats hundreds of copies per college or sixthform. and reading the other comments you can see guess how thick it is.five years ago, even two, this book was a veritable mine of information for the 17-18 year old poring over it, imagining the thrills of taking bookbinding or calligraphy for three years, but now, with the excellent CD and website, the book is reduntant.
using the book, you have to think about which universities you want to go to before you can see if they do your course or not, wheras with the website and CD you can search and the information comes up in seconds. using the website i found universities i had never even heard of, and found courses i would not have been able to find with the book.with all students able to access the internet at home, in colege, at a libary or internetcafe. And if they don't have internet access, they can use a CD rom. i think it would be much wiser if the books were not given out automatically, but only to those who want them, with a few copies availible for reference in the colleges.
