5.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Complete Further Maths A-Level Textbook 24 Jun 1999
By A Customer
OCR Further Maths A-level is almost completely covered in so far as the pure Maths is concerned, although there is nothing on planesexpressed as either vector or cartesian equations. Which is needed in the Module of Pure Maths 6 of said examining body. However, Complex numbers, Differential equations and matrix Algebra is well covered and clear.

I am retired and pursuing maths out of interest, not for exams. I cannot comment on the suitability of this book for current A Level syllabuses, though my impression is that on at least some topics it takes one well into university-level maths. It covers a lot of ground, including matrices and linear algebra, further calculus, conics, advanced curve-sketching, and an introduction to group theory. The pace is in places fairly breakneck, and one has to concentrate hard. There is a plethora of exercises - far more than anyone could reasonably be expected to complete - with answers at the back, but not the workings for the answers. Compared with the authors' core A Level maths book, this is much less suited for someone like me not studying for exams. This is because much of the book is taken up with quite complicated computational techniques rather than with concepts. Another defect is that it often just refers back to the Core Course book rather than giving a sufficient recap of what that book said on the particular aspect of maths. So the book is not free-standing: unless you have studied the authors' (excellent) book on the Core Course, you are likely to have some difficulty in places.

4.0 out of 5 stars No longer appropriate for current syllabuses 6 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although this is an excellent text, it has the wrong emphasis for current 'A' level Further Maths syllabuses. For example, despite a large section on matrices there is nothing on 3x3 matrices of standard transformations, not enough advanced calculus and a big section on groups that is rarely covered at 'A' level. It is a good book for those who are intending to study Maths beyond school level and want to look at the subject in more depth, but you will need other texts as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 29 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Studying Further Maths A level on the edexcel board. This book is MUCH better than the edexcel text books. Far tougher examples and practice questions than the edexcel books. Challenges you better and in my opinion will leave you better prepared for Further Maths A level exams.
