Having read lots of reviews of the available books on amazon for Numeracy QTS (many of which quoted incorrect answers and whole chunks missing!) I plumped for the re-published version of this book. I found it met my needs perfectly and by the looks of things the incorrect answers etc have been ironed out. What was great were the practise tests in each section, as there aren't many available online and so you can end up repeating them which, for someone like me who remembers answers, isn't great! This book gave me some very simple methods for speeding up my mental maths and I am pretty sure was instrumental in me passing! I would definitely recommend this over the other, perhaps more official, versions available.

I have my test booked in March and I am SO GLAD for this book !! I read it everyday and it makes each day a bit easier towards the exam as I am quite worried about it - Maths is not on of my strengths. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who finds maths a struggle I think it is perfect for passing the test (fingers crossed) It is really well written but also simple in the nicest sense of the word. I have actually learned some really interesting things I never knew before which was the last thing I expected. It might just be me but I am put off when something being described becomes too wordy, I loose the point. This book is not too wordy and very digestible. I have also brought the 'Passing the Literacy Skills Test' book and have exactly the same opinion on it. I have never brought a 'self help' book which I guess is the category these two fall into and if that is what they are then I say they are the best 'self help' you could get to help with the GTS tests. GET THEM!

Format: Paperback
It looked as though this book might contain some useful tips, but I was pretty upset to find, on page 19, the answer to 15 x 13 is given as 210 instead of 195. The author then goes on to work out 1.5 x 1.3 as 2.10 and 0.15 x 1.3 as .210. I have not been through the rest of the book so I have no idea whether this is the only error.

I bought this book for someone who wanted help preparing for the professional skills test, as she is not confident in maths. I am now not sure whether to give it to her after all, as errors like this are likely to just confuse her even further. At £6.26 for a slim paperback, I think it's pretty disgraceful that it has not been properly proof read.

I purchased this book as I have applied for a teacher training course and have to pass the QTS tests before a place at university will be offered as these are the new rules from 2013. It's been almost 10 years since I did GCSE level maths and this book was great for brushing up on my skills and was easy to read and was broken down in a way that made it very easy to understand the methods to be followed. I have booked my maths test for the end of the month so hopefully will pass and this book has definitely helped me feel more confident regarding maths!

Format: Kindle Edition
I borrowed this for free on the kindle.
I used this in conjunction with videos on youtube and the online mock tests available. I passed the test first time. (I don't say that to boast but to demonstrate that a few evenings spent with these few resources will yield results. Longer if you don't know your percentage, fraction and decimal facts or 7 times table!)

The book has many hints and tips for both sections of the test. Some of the methods were very simple, others were not my preferred methods. You should check out some of the youtube vids as you might find a method for something that really makes sense to you.
The sample tests in this book were the most helpful aspect for me. It was great to be able to run through a set of questions (without the time pressure of the mocks) and then see just where I went wrong. The mocks are great to asess where you need to work more.
I'm not sure I did every test question in the book, but I only found one mistake which was in section 2, mock test two, question 6's answer which states "40%" minutes.But the overall answer and method were sound.
To be honest this one mistake wasn't enough to make me drop a star. I re-sat my GCSE last year and so many answers in my text book were wrong. I think some just slip through the net.

I recommend this book. I'm very grateful that my cheapskate tendencies led me to a very helpful resource.

My first practice test was diabolical, so my being able to pass two months later can only be down to this book. It does the business, and it takes you through it step by step. I spotted a couple of errors and omissions, but that seems to be common for this type of book. Otherwise, highly recommended.
