I borrowed the Dorset BKA’s copy of the BBKA’s Course in a Case and have to return it later today.  This seems to be an early version and there may be later improvements. I found several factual errors in the written material but later found an envelope containing a note to say that they were aware that there were errors which would be corrected later. The book of pictures is very good.

The best part by far is a film: ‘The Honeybee’ by Gill Sentinella which has some super photography and a good commentary (apart from a solitary split infinitive!).

The BBKA are curently asking £50 for this very packed case. Is it worth it?  What else could I spend £50 on in the way of beekeeping education? A shelf full of bee books; 2 years membership of the BKA giving access to all their facilities, including lectures or a shed load of bee-kit at Dorchester & Weymouth BKA’s auction.  When compared with the alternative uses for the money, I wouldn’t part with £50 for the Course in a Case.
