Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This AQA A-level textbook for the Core 1 course is very clearly set out. Descriptions and explanations of each topic are concise and clear. Example questions, whilst a little repetitive, gradually increase the challenge and ensure you've understood the topic. The enclosed CD has lots of exam questions for revision.

And it's for revision that I think this book would be most useful. In fact I'm not sure why else you would buy it! As a revision guide it is very detailed - it's written as if you are coming across the topics for the first time. So I'd suggest purchasing this if you are really struggling with parts the syllabus - it would be time consuming to go through lots of the topics, but it doesn't assume any current knowledge so it's a good chance to have a second go at understanding!

Note there are also Edexcel versions available - make sure you get the one for your exam board.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good coverage 17 Oct 2013
By Seren Ade HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Core 1 Pure Maths Module student support book from CGP is, as ever for the range, a very good thing. The module syllabus is fully covered, the book is well-laid out and extremely user-friendly.

Sections are clearly structured and explanations are thorough - far better than the stuff that was available when I did my Maths 'A' Level. For 'A' Level candidates, the CD, in particular, is a valuable resource - providing mock papers and detailed, worked-through answers. But this book is also a useful resource for people brushing up on Maths, or studying university subjects requiring a certain amount of Maths-based knowledge.

I mistakenly ordered this from the Amazon Vine freebies list, having already ordered the Edexel syllabus version, however this is now in use as a source book by my younger brother, a second-year Physics student - who comments that there are sufficient differences between syllabuses to make owning both versions useful to him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of worked examples! 20 Sep 2012
By A. Kwabula VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is like other texts written for AQA so you have the usual format where learning objectives at the start of each chapter so you know what you are expected to know after studying the chapter. You get consise explanations that are really short. The worked examples are well done in that every step is explained so you know what is happening. You have many tips that warn you common pitfalls as well those that explain certain terms.

It covers a lot of material in a straight-forward nmanner from basic Algebra to topics that usually intimidate students such as Integration and Differentiation (which took me time tio grasp at Uni). I looked at these topics in this book, and i wish I had a similar text as it makes things simple by going step by step and explaining every step. There are pleanty of worked examples and exercises. You have the review ecercises as well Exam style exerces so you get close to the real thing.

Highly recommended.

This A4 softback is idea to carry round with your school or work things to help you revise, or just to remember how to do your homework. Layout is good, printing is clear and the examples and questions well explained. There are not daunting reams of text or equations to put you off after page one: the book begins clearly and carries on that way.

This is not a teach yourself book and I’d say if you haven’t already been taught the syllabus then this isn’t going to be enough to get your through the exam but, as a reminder to something you already know or a means to extend your understanding it’s great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic series of study aids 27 Feb 2014
By B. Bello VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The AQA syllabus requires an in depth study aid as there is a lot of ground to cover at this level.

This book covers the syllabus with a point by point approach which breaks down the subject into bite size pieces, aided by the additional comments in the margins of the book and a healthy amount of diagrams to illustrate.

The CD rom which comes with the book really helps the prepare for the exam scenario with two printable practice exam papers with detailed answers so you are fully aware of what level of detail is required and what points you should be making.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good Maths Text Book 4 Feb 2014
By Birmingham Book Reader VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a textbook for the AQA A-level Core 1 course.

I wanted to look at this book as a few years ago struggled as a mature student with A Level Maths,

On opening this textbook I was impressed with how very well clearly set out the pages are.
A tip is to start with the introduction as this sets out how the pages are actually set out - showing the reader where they can find the learning objectives, examples, exercises and so on.
The first few pages are so important to look at rather than rushing ahead.

The Descriptions and explanations of each topic are well written and clear.
I particularlty found the example questions, to be helpful. They seem to start off easy and get harder as the textbook progresses which is ok, it helps with confidence.

There is also an enclosed CD packed full of exam style questions.

Overall I am very impressed as came to the textbook "cold" so would expect if a young person needs extra revision then this will be a super textbook to obtain.
