5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to pass 8 Jan 2004
Format:Paperback
A good no nonsense book. Simply follow the instructions and you should pass the tests. The practice questions are realistic and even similar to the real thing. Good luck with the teacher training.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful 17 Dec 2003
Format:Paperback
This is a very helpful guide. The questions in it are very representitive of the ones you get in the real test, so you can really prepare yourself. The answers section is also good. Each answer has a 'key point' which shows you how to arrive at the answer if you got it wrong. This really does allow you to learn from your mistakes.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to brush up their skills for the test.

I've just passed all three of the QTS skills tests today, and I know Iwould not have been able to do the numeracy test without this little book. It has all you need to know, and is very accessible.

Highly recommended for any trainee teacher as the book willreinforce your existing skills and help you to gain new ones, giving youthe confidence to take, and pass, the QTS skills tests.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Help. 19 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Having failed the test once I was dreading sitting it again, but this book was a real help. It provides practise questions that are real representations of the actual test.The only thing missing is the timings, but if you use this along with the practise CD then the test will be a breeze. I sat it again today and with the help of the book passed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive study guide for the Numeracy Tests 25 April 2001
Format:Paperback
This book is a must for anyone who is afraid of the Numeracy Skills Test. As a beginning teacher myself who has just passed the test first time with the aid of this book, I thoroughly recommend it. The practice questions are identical to the types of question you will have in the on-line test. The book specifically helps you to master the terminology of education statistics that all the questions are couched in. Once you understand the terminology, the questions really are not that difficult. Mark Patmore has done his homework well and therefore I give this book five stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Banish test fears! 17 Dec 2003
Format:Paperback
My tutor suggested I got this book, because I was dreading the test and felt like I needed extra support. It was well worth the money - I passed first time!
I found it easy to read - so sailed through it. It has a helpful introduction which lets you know what to expect on the day and lots and lots of questions. After testing myself a couple of times and going over my mistakes, I felt fully prepared. This book is well worth the money - but it now to banish test fears!

4.0 out of 5 stars A genuine representation of the real test! 4 Oct 2001
Format:Paperback
An excellent and practical guide. A real 'must have' for those pupils who fear the dreaded numeracy test. The only thing that the book did not prepare me for was the timing, a crucial aspect of the actual test, that needed coverage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful 26 July 2001
Format:Paperback
To be honest when I first heard about this book I thought that it would be full of incomprehensible statistics and complicated mathematical problems, the same I thought the numeracy would be like.
However going through the book shows that as long as you use little "shortcuts" and techniques, then there is no reason why trainee teachers cannot pass the numeracy test. This book has proven to be invaluable to me and if you want to get QTS then this book should be your first port of call to help either brush up your skills or help develop them.
