How can I find a particular book?

Our new shop has been extensively upgraded to make it easier to navigate and find what you are looking for.

Using the Left Hand Menu - You can use the left hand menu buttons to browse 11+ books, E-papers, Interactive CDs/Software. Each of these three sections is divided into subjects. So if you wish to find a Verbal Reasoning book, select 11+ Books and then click on Verbal Reasoning. The results will show all Verbal Reasoning books. You can use the Sort By Filter in the results page to view the results by bestseller, price, title etc.

Using the Right Hand Search Box - The search box at the top is a wide search function in which you can use any word or number. This will reveal any results containing the search term in the title, author, publisher, ISBN field or in any of the detailed product descriptions we have provided.

Using the Search By Filters – these are better used to find a specific product. You can search by choosing more than one filter to narrow the results further. For instance if you wish to find Math’s books by the publisher named IPS you would select Maths Books in the subject drop down list and then IPS in the Publisher drop down list.

Can I order an item that shows out of stock?

No. Many of our customers, which include professional tutors and schools value and rely upon the next day delivery service and they would not want their order to be held back whilst waiting for an out of stock item. Therefore, to avoid a delay to you in despatching your order we do not allow you to add an item to your basket that is out of stock. If an item you want is out of stock we suggest you check again  as we do replenish our stocks frequently.
