I have just this year finished my GCSE's and if it wasn't for this book, i may have struggled.

Although my teacher was good, there were things that i had to go over in my spare time. This book first has instructions on how to to this, and also practice questions, and the really useful stuff is the little icons on the page that shows whether a calculator is needed, and also what grade it is, ranging from D-A*, helping you to keep track of how well you are doing.

Also the answer pages in the back of the book is also very useful to check if your going right, and this really helped me improve my grade, and thanks to this book, i got an A grade at GCSE. I advise anyone struggling or even just a good way to revise, to buy this book and work through it, even if it means only the parts which you struggle on, such as trigonometry or pythagoras.

This is a very concise guide to the material you would be expected to know for the GCSE Higher maths paper. I actually bought it because I'm scheduled to take the GRE exam in August, and revision guides for that exam are much rarer and considerably more expensive. Since I haven't done maths since secondary school I wanted something to help me brush up on my basic number skills and remind me of the things I'd forgotten.

Pros: The book is quite concise, so you cover a lot quite quickly. There are plenty of questions so you learn by doing, which my teacher always said was the best way. It's also very reasonably priced .

Cons: Some of the questions at the bottom of the page aren't answered at the back! I understand that there's a lot to chew through here but that's really a rookie mistake. Secondly, the answers are not shown with the working, so if you get the wrong answer it's not always easy to see why. Again, I understand this would make the book much longer, but let's be honest, if learning was just a matter of having formulas quoted repeatedly no-one would need this book at all.

In summary, I would suggest this as a good learning aid for anyone struggling with maths at the GCSE level- It's a very good prompt and explains complicated concepts in an easy-to grasp way. But I wouldn't rely on it for a revision guide for the actual exam, for which you'd probably want something more comprehensive.

I have found this book extremely usefull in jogging my memory for GCSE Maths being so old that they were called O levels in my day.

As a reminder it is vgery usefull to use it from a zero knowledge start point slightly less so.

This book was really useful to have a home to help my daughter. She had some exaamples to look at and some problems to do with answers supplied.
