Up until recently I use to use the Heinemann offerings to teach the C1 and C2 modules. While these were ok and the results obtained were good, they do not come close in comparison to this book that covers both C1 and C2.

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 have been using this book with my students. The presentation is good, the explanations effective, and the questions excellent. All in all, it has the making of a five star book. BUT there is a hiccough, and it's one which could cause a lot of annoyance and wasted time for students. The answers in the back contain far too many errors for comfort.

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.

Teaching for nearly two decades i was asked to teach a friends son. Having the freedom to choose a text book that I had never used before i purchased Peter Hinds book. It contains excellent explanations, goods questions linked directly to edexcel exam questions and a few more that I have seen in the usual school text books. All in all an excellent aid to learning c1 and c2

I credit this book alone in helping me get an A in the C1 and C2 unit exams. It has tons of clearly laid out examples and many practice questions which makes the content easy to grasp. Get this book you will not regret it. The CD Rom is also excellent, these are a fantastic series and will be sure to help those doing an A level in Maths.

This book is filled with questions and has the answers in the back of the book. I don't feel they explain how you do some things properly, they show an example sometimes which can help, use this book for practice mainly.

This book may be as good as the other reviews have said. I do however object strongly when to it says on the Amazon website that it has a hardcover, but the book I was sent by Amazon definitely did not have a hardcover.
