5.0 out of 5 stars A really useful book! 13 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I use this book as a main text for adults preparing for level 1 and level 2 adult numeracy tests (it is less useful for Entry 3 students). It is comprehensively referenced to the Core Curriculum which helps to keep my teaching on track and makes paperwork less of a chore. I have found the level and style of questions to be exactly right for the adults I teach and the plentiful examples throughout help students take control of their own learning. One of the most useful resources I have found.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Holy Grail 13 Nov 2005
Format:Paperback
This book is terrific. I'm a Maths phobic, 3 failures at O Level (yes I'm quite old...) and I needed the Level 2 Numeracy qualification to do teaching. Two intensive weeks of revision and working through this book and the exercises at the end of it lead to ...a pass! One of my happiest moments exam-wise and not possible without the help of this superb, key text. Thanks ladies I owe you one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best maths book I've seen 4 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
I have used this book quite a lot when teaching in my Adult Numeracy class. I like it because of its ease of use and layout. My learners also love it and have bought it for themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best maths book 1 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
My uncle recommended this book to me after flicking through it in the shop. At the time I wasn't really bothered because I hated maths. I needed to pass my key skills level 2 maths in order to get to uni. I studied and did the activities everyday in this book and I noticed the results straight away. I went from hating maths to absolutely enjoying maths. This book is the only book you need as it really starts off from the basics to the more competent level 2. I haved passed my key skills level 2 and I am at uni now so I recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maths Used To Be Yuk! 3 Jun 2009
By Catmum
Format:Paperback
This book was recommended to me by my adult numeracy tutor. I was so pleased when I saw it because, not only does it have the answers to the problems in the back but, it explains how to solve the problems in the first place in an understandable way. For this reason, it is also a boon if you have school-age children who may need help in maths with something you have long since forgotten. The book is split into three sections: 'Number'; Measures, Shape & Space'; 'Handling Data', which is convenient, because, if you only have a weakness in a particular area, you don't then have to trawl through the whole book looking for the questions you need.

The book was received inside the delivery estimate time, in mint condition.

I really can't praise this book highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars A top class numeracy home-study book 8 July 2008
By Andy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book on the back of Kathryn Wood's review, as I was taking the National Certificate in Numeracy Level 2 exam under similar circumstances to her. I used it for home-study over several weeks and today I passed the exam first time! I am thrilled!

I would highly recommend this book.
