The explanations are so much better. More time is taken to explain concepts and there are more worked examples. The format for each chapter is an introductory section stating what you are expected to know. This is followed by a number of sections that include the required theory, worked examples, excercises and open ended investigations. at the end of the chapter there is a review of all the work studied and a concise summary.
The pathetically easy material contained in the first chapter of the Heinemann C1 book has been removed. Instead a CD-ROM is included with the book. This contains a bridging course (pdf) containing elementary material, an e-book (pdf) containing the entire contents of the book and some very useful powerpoint presentations. These materials are excellent and seem to be specifically designed for the teacher. Each pdf page is in fact a double-page spread of a book or bridging course. These could be used in conjunction with an overhead projector or interactive whiteboard. If the teacher wants something interactive, then the powerpoint slides could be used in the same manner. For a student buying the book, they can of course be used at home as well.
All-in-all this represents the best preparation for the C1 and C2 exams. There is incremental development of topics in very easy stages, leading up to exam-level questions. There are also two specimen exam papers and a complete set of answers to all questions at the back of the book. With the addition of materials on the CD-ROM it represents very good value for money.
I highly recommend this book.
I remember reading this criticism before my purchase, and I can now confirm that in my copy (purchased in 2011) there are around 60 errors in the answers - and I mean actual errors, not simple formatting or precision deficiencies. Now if OUP were to publish an errata list, this would not be such a major problem. But they don't, and judging from my correspondence with them, they have no intention of doing so. For this reason, their book only justifies 4 stars at best.
Pearson's Edexcel Maths series directed by Keith Pledger is also excellent - certainly more colourful and glossy, and with a CD containing not just a copy of every page but a detailed analytical answer to every question. It's a good idea to cover both series, starting with this one, as the Pledger series is a little more demanding.
