9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Karen Baker on 27 Aug. 2009
Format: Paperback
An attractive and well-explained textbook with plentiful worked examples and admirably clear explanations. The Live Text CD has been really helpful, especially the worked solutions to all the questions in every exercise. This works perfectly with the Mark Rowand FP1 textbook which is less attractive, and with too-brief explanations, but sometimes uses a different approach and definitely extends knowledge more with many harder questions.
I used the Pledger text to teach myself/revise the topics, then the Rowland book to fully develop and consolidate my knowledge.

11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By A. J. HAWKEN on 13 Oct. 2009
Format: Paperback
I spent a week going through this book, to brush up my mathematics. Most of the text is made up of annotated worked examples and numerous exercises. the text which precedes this is extremely brief - mostly a bullet-pointed summary. This format, whilst useful in a classroom setting, can be inadequate if you are teaching yourself.

I have a few problems with the way some of the content is presented. For instance in chapter 2 (Numerical solution of equations) for problems involving linear interpolation, I found that the choice of similar triangles chosen only made the arithmetic more difficult. I also felt that this type of presentation was teaching procedural techniques, and that weaker students would be learning this method parrot fashion. You have the same sort of thing for finding the inverse of a matrix in chapter 4.

Overall I found the book easy to follow using the worked examples. In my case, I skimmed through each chapter doing a few problems on the way, and then did the mixed exercise for each chapter. I found the CD-ROM extremely useful, as there were some occaisions when I obtained the wrong answer. Checking on the disk is a lot quicker than finding my silly mistakes. Also, it occured to me that if I were to teach this unit, the CD-ROM would be brilliant for displaying examples on the board, and so would dramatically cut down what I would have to write on the board.

The inclusion of the CD-ROM much improves the product and gives the buyer a feeling that they have much better value.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. G. Teasdale on 14 Nov. 2010
Format: Paperback
I am a mature student who does not have the support offered at school/college, and I have found this book excellent as the solutions to problems are given, via the CD, not just answers! I will be definately buying the FP2 book for my next module and S2 if it is available. Buy it-it is great. (PS I am NOT on comission)

Hey, Im a student studying for my A level's at Sixth Form and have started Further Maths as an extra AS in addition to my other A levels. As Im the only one out of my sixth form doing further maths, the department didn't have the right books to support me so I bought this book in hope it would help. And I have no problem in saying it absolutly does!
The diagrams are clear and colourul and its really useful if you want to teach yourself (although some guidance is useful)
The exercises are varied and provide examples for any types ofthe question. Some of the answers in the back of the book are wrong but they are obviously wrong so you dont worry about it!
Overall, Im really please I bought this book,I know its going to help me immensly!

It covers everything you need to know inside out and from top to bottom. It is also simple to follow with no ambiguity.

Bought as a present for my granddaughter in Thailand, at the request of her parents. It seems well laid out and I expect that it will prove of great value as she proceeds through secondary school

I sat my FP1 exam in June and this book covered absolutely everything that I could have needed to know. The solution bank on the included disc has been invaluable in times of doubt, as it clearly provides and explains the solutions to problems within the book (including proofs - from what I remember).

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By D. Harrison on 1 April 2010
Format: Paperback
This is a really useful, informative book. However, I'm glad I'm using this under the supervision of a teacher, as there are many careless mistakes in it, especially the worked examples and some answers in the back of the book. The CD is probably the most useful part, as I can print questions off and not have to write them out again on paper, as many of my errors come from copying the questions down wrong.
Overall, a really useful book.. in fact all my AS levels are tought from the same series. I could never understand D1 until I bought it!
