Who the heck uses text books in this day and age? - they…"

I have been led to understand that "Vocational" refers to the "field" of study - such as "hospitality certificate, diploma etc - " - i.e. generic, but not specific (often studied at TVETS), whilst…"
"Well said Charlene! You have hit the nail on the head. There are so many gullible desperate people who will pay for this rubbish - and think that it is going to do the job for them. Shame. I have always maintained that there…"
