“I have been teaching for two years and in each year have opted to use the Jacaranda texts. Being a new teacher I found that the textbook explained concepts from the VCAA study design for HHD in a way that was informative yet succinct. The text is easy to follow for students and is a fantastic resource to assist the students in achieving their full potential in the subject and give them the best opportunity to do well in the subject.”
