Format: Paperback
This book is ideal for A-level students who are considering doing a numerate degree, particularly maths. It contains lots of useful methods and tricks, with full proofs of every theorem. It isn't highly technical, nor does it go into much depth, but it is an excellent primer and will make you realise some of the amazing things that can be proved quite simply with the right concepts.

Format: Paperback
The gap between high school and university mathematics is
quite noticeable. I found this book to be an excellent book
to prep a smooth landing to university mathematics.
(The best one out of a long list of other similar books
I had a look at)
Starts of really easy and clear but still goes beyond the
"surface" when required.
The chapters are structured very short, which I thought
was a good thing.
It has a lot of worked examples.
However, the book does not have solutions to the
end-of-chapter exercises, which I thought was a long minus
since I was reading the book on my own as a self study..
But all in all, a very enjoyable book to read!

I bought this book after having it recommended to me from 3 independent sources and it was well recommended. I've just finished A2 maths, about to start Further Maths and looking to study Maths at University. It offers a great introduction to parts of mathematics I was unaware of in great style and detail. This book covers a vast number of topics and covers a suprising volume in just a few pages on each.

If you have any feeling that you want to study maths further, buy this book and it will show you why.

A concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics is very legible, it is written so that it is absorbed easily, it intoduces many prime topics including a very extensive and clear section on Integration

The missing link 2 Oct. 2000
By Joe Stauffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm not sure how many of us there are out there, but I am one of a breed of consumers of applied mathematics who learned some pretty sophisticated mathematical technology without the rigor of pure mathematics. Although this book is aimed at freshmen entering mathematics programs who need to be inculturated into the world of pure mathematics, I found it to be the crucial link I needed to advance my own applied mathematical training. I reached a point where I was ready to move from applied texts to the more cryptic world of math texts written for graduate mathematicians. Unfortunately, I was not properly trained to decypher their special language and way of doing things, particularly that of the formal proof. I found reading introductory texts in analysis to be like trying to learn Japanese from books which were themselves written in Japanese. Then I found this wonderful little text. It made things much more accessible to me and helped me crack enough of the code where I could find my way around those analysis texts, which in turn allowed me to move on to the graduate math texts containing the methods I am studying now. The book is a bit high priced for its size, but for me it was well worth it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This short little book is very thorough and challenging, I am still reading it so I can't be more conclusive than that
