Incorrect information within the textbook
« on: January 04, 2017, 06:44:25 pm »
Hello! Question: should I follow the textbook information (that is 4 decades out of date) or the up-to-date one? The info I'm talking about is the tongue map; the textbook says it's correct despite being disproven in 1974 (and mind you, the textbook was first published this year...). I'm sort of inclined to follow the up-to-date information, but the entire state is most likely going to be following the tongue map as this is the only textbook available. So, I would assume, examiners would also be going by this info too. 


Thanks in advance for all help.

Bump! Would like to know the answer to this too. The textbook is so shitttttttt; it barely covers the study design dot points, vague or missing in its explanation, and sometime gives entirely incorrect information. And it was 75 fucken bucks...

I didn't study Food Tech and have no idea about the tongue, but this sounds like a pretty frustrating situation.

I'd also be more inclined to go with the up-to-date information (otherwise, what's the point of learning it?). But what do your teachers say? If they're accepting the out-of-date textbook information for SACs, then you'd be silly to do otherwise, even though it seems ridiculous. :-\
