This Maths book is excellent for visual learners.  It has lots of diagrams and careful explanations on how to do the sums.  It simplifies most of the explanations which is really good for struggling students.  It covers the full syllabus for Core Maths and introduces some Extended topics.  Every question in the book is answered; even the graph and Diagram questions have answers provided so if you have a curve graph you won't need to wonder if it's correct. It's the only Maths book I know that has some colour diagrams which seems to help my daughter with concentration.
If you are doing Extended Maths you will need another book for extra practice as the questions in this book are limited to about 5 a chapter.  This book and the David Rayner books (either Extended or Core) perfectly complement one another.  Collins explains the execution, while Rayner give you tons of practice.
I did not like the way the CD was structured as instead of giving PDF worksheets of extra revision practice, it's an interactive interface which launches your Internet browser and asks you very simple questions; simpler than the book and hardly useful. They are ok for simple quick revision but not challenging enough to sharpen your skills for a good grade.  Sample questions from the CD are: 

Write 0.5 as a fraction in the form of a/b. 
Another: solve the equation x+5=8. 

Hardly challenging.  But the book itself is still worth buying as a main text for Core and supplementary for Extended.

This is an excellent resource for anyone taking the Cambridge IGCSE. The explanations are clear and concise with enough examples to illustrate the various methods that can be used to solve a problem. The CD-Rom that comes with the book is also a useful tool with which to practise everything learnt. The only proviso I would make is that the student would need to find some more practice papers to complete before taking the exam.

Go through this book chapter by chapter doing the short pracice excercises at the end of each section. It has clear concise examples. I found that the course books went into so much detail that could have been explained in more simple ways. I agree with angie. Try and get hold of as many practice papers you can to get extra practice. Good Luck!

The book brings the mathematical rules and principles into a nice digestible form. Well done, especially for the novice in Math. Also excellent for the intermediate person reviewing their past Math knowledge.
