This book, while very good, tends to have flaws in its exercises. I have found that since using the book, in the answers there are 'There is no real answer to this question, it could be anything'. But the layout of the book is flawless. The book doesn't require a teacher, and teachers have found themselves just reading from the book when explaining topics. There are some typos in it, for example on one page the questions go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 6... but this is the worst it gets (which is very good considering it has been done very hastely due to the change in the GCSE exam).
There is one major flaw with the book. This is that the answers are in the back. On questions where no working is needed, the pupils just copy the answers from the back and graphs are practically traced. There should be a separate teachers edition and pupils should not have access to the answers.
The book could do with some more help towards the coursework. I had to use an OCR book (for the Edexcel course) to help pupils understand what the coursework required.
Overall, a good book with flaws. BUT certainly the BEST BOOK on the market today.

I have been working from this book in the classroom. Initially I paid little attention to explanations and found the exercised daunting, as some are far too long. After reviewing and learning new modules from the book, I found the explanations invaluable.
This book, made by Edexcel for Edexcel, covers the entire Edexcel GCSE Mathematics Higher course (to A*). If you have a poor mathematics teacher I advise that you make good use of this book, ideally at home.
I strongly disagree with those views above ? ironically of a teacher ? regarding the included answers. His views are exactly the reason why people don?t want to learn; they feel they are forced, controlled and scrutinized. The answers allow those willing to learn to quickly check up on answers and as a result act as they see fit (e.g. seek advise, review explanations).

This book covers GCSE Level Mathematical topics well. An excellent buy, well worth the money spent. If you are doing GCSE Maths, this book will help you well with your studies. It also covers Algebraic Fractions and Quadratic Inequalities.

I already knew what I was getting with this textbook as it was the very one I used at high school myself - I'm planning to teach myself some maths and physics, so wanted to revise without paying what seems like loads for a current textbook. It isn't up to date with the post-2006 exams, but that's fine by me. I took my GCSEs in 2007 but my teachers didn't want to change textbook, so we kept these, and I think they're pretty good for the kinds of things I need it for!
Nowadays we can Google something if we don't understand it, and that's what I do anyway, so this book is great for explaining the basic concepts and giving me loads of practice questions. Admittedly, it is obviously meant for students who have teachers to explain things, but my maths is just a little rusty - it is still there knocking around in my head, so the reminder and the practice is all I need.
Great and very cheap! Hooray!

I used this back in secondary school and was telling my friends this would be better than some of the new glossy ones they are being given out!

Good book, but probably should've got the newer edition! Some of the content seemed a little outdated for todays courses. Will be looking into buying the newer edition

brought this on recommendation from my son's maths teacher, and although in good( not brand new)condition, for a penny the service was brilliant!
