5.0 out of 5 stars Home-schooler's dream... 14 Feb 2008
Everything you need for GCSE in one book. It's up to date, nicely presented, all the theory and practice you need, has an index so you can look things up easily and, best of all for busy mums, there is an answer section at the back so you don't have to spend as much time as your kids when it comes to marking their work!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Look no further - this is the best. 30 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having left grammar school 35 years ago, and wishing to refresh some maths, I tried this book. It refers to 'higher' mathematics, the term used, I believe, when likening modern maths to the older higher standards, and as such brought back memories of the maths taught in the grammar school classrooms years ago. However, the way it is structured and written is a testiment to modern educational thinking and techniques which are superior to those of years ago, and it takes logical and progressive steps with lots of worked examples and questions to validate learning.
The standard of printing is very high with clear text and diagrams on quality paper throughout. There are also many examples of actual examination questions to try.
Full marks to the authors, this is a fine book that hopefully many people will benefit from both now and in the future.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book for me explains maths very well I struggle with maths a lot and this book is a good resource from A to Z of course it does not have every method to solve a problem but once you find one just stick with it, its good for all GCSE 2011/12. I highly recommend it to college students.

Bought as recommended by school teacher as the book that is sometimes used in school. As this is a text book it has an explanation, examples and exercises to practice. There are answers in the back of the book which means it will be very useful for revision as well as practice on areas that are a problem. There is also useful summaries of key points and of each section with visuals where appropriate. The terminology is as I've seen on past papers which is also good to practice seeing and using. In addition there are useful tips and formulas in little boxes to further aid the learner. Also included is a bonus of an example practice paper at the back of the book. I am glad I took the recommendation from the teacher and would not hesitate to say to anyone to do the same - it is (or will be hopefully!) money well spent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good , one of the best in the market 16 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although I have not finished studying the book, it seems to be a very good one. In fact, one of the best in the market. Explanations flow with logic. It has many good examples and exercises. However, it can expand more in some topics such as Probability. Also, more examples for complex exercises would be very beneficial to those students aiming for A and A*.
