Over-Educational Software


Remember I mentioned that I'd bought my elder daughter some driving test software? It was for the written part of the test.

Well, yesterday she sat that test. It soon transpired that the software she'd been using to revise with was more than just examples of the kind of question she would be asked, it was the actual questions she would be asked. They were identical in every detail, with the same photographs and the same references to "the grey car" just where they ought to be.

Bah! In my day, you had to memorise the entire contents of a booklet, not the fixed answers to a set of fixed questions.

Needless to say, my daughter passed.
