5.0 out of 5 stars Very handy! 20 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this after attending an Institute of Physics conference for Physics Teachers where the author explained the basis for the book. It was a long time since I did muchmaths and as I teach A level Physics to students who aren't necessarily doing A level maths. I've been using it to assess maths skills and to give those in need practice questions. It is very WJEC based but on the whole it has proved invaluable to me. I'd recommend it to teachers and students alike.
