1.0 out of 5 stars Too Many Errors 15 July 2013
By Joe
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book in preparation for my Professional Skills Test and more specifically for the numeracy side of the examination. The thing that appealed to me about this book is the assumption of a very low level of mathematical ability. The book was true to its word, it starts each section as if it is the first time you have encountered, say, fractions or probability. I found that it explained mathematical procedures more clearly than the Bond et al book which you have no doubt come across if you are shopping around for this kind of thing.

As I was working my way through the book I began to notice errors in their answers. The very fact that I had to buy this book may lead you to question my reliability in highlighting errors in a maths book, but believe me, each time I came across a potential error I worked through it over and over and then showed it to friends and family more proficient at maths than me to be absolutely sure it was the book and not me. The errors were not sums done incorrectly, the methods in the book were always correct, but it was careless errors that, despite using the right method, gave the wrong answer. An example of this is in Chapter 9 on question 4 of the Easy Questions section. It asks you to work out how tall a pupil is in inches if he is 1.6 m tall and 2.5 cm to the inch. The answer in the book gives you a great method to work this out. The only problem is that the answer is dealing with a pupil whose height is 1.5m not 1.6m like the height given in the question. I wasted a long time working out why my answer wasn't coming to the answer in the book before realising this.

I didn't bother finishing the maths section of this book. I got to Chapter 12, by which point I had found around 7-8 errors and lost complete faith.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good book 24 July 2013
Format:Paperback
I found this a really good book to help me pass my skills tests, some content seemed irrelevant to the 2 tests I would be sitting but the amount of questions in the book was very good to help practice for the tests.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many mistakes! 6 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this to brush up on my skills for the professional skills test. It was ok for the literacy, but the numeracy section is riddled with mistakes. Even if the mistakes weren't there it would still be mediocre as the guidance and explanations offered are poor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful but contains errors! 10 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book specifically to help with the maths section of the professional skills test.

It is a good book as it explains everything thoroughly from start to finish and allows you to remember maths you probably haven't done since you were about 13.

However, as I have gone through the book checking my answers against those written in the back I have found answers to be incorrect. This has not just happened once, I have found at least 5 incorrect answers and I am not even half way through the section.

Page 7 from example says
"2150235 would be read as one million one hundred and fifty thousand two hundred and thirty-five." I'm pretty sure any number beginning with a 2 cannot be read beginning with a 1....

Chapter one exercise 13 tells you to round 125 to the nearest 100, I wrote 100 but the book thinks the answer is 0....

Chapter nine "easy questions" number 4. Gives the answer to a question where the measurement is 1.5m when the question in the book used to measurement of 1.6m therefore the answer is incorrect.

Chapter ten question 6a informs me that 7x0 is in fact 7, thus changing everything I ever new about x0 questions. The answer is therefore completely wrong and 0+0+0+0+0+0+0 = 0 and not 7.

These are just some of the mistakes I have noticed and I have no doubt there are more.

This book is okay but it comes with a warning; check your answers on a calculator, trust that your own maths skills are good enough or ask a friend. The book is not always right!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor numeracy section 18 April 2014
Format:Paperback
Please take note, the reviewers who have given this book a high rating bought the book for someone else! The numeracy section is littered with mistakes, the worst one I have found, 10^0 = 0 and stating "any number to the power of zero is zero"! (page 105). This is totally incorrect, any number to the power of zero equals 1. Do not trust this book for it's information or the answers and the text is less than clear. A regretted purchase!

1.0 out of 5 stars Presumably it has never been proof read 23 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
How dare they publish a text book with so many mistakes in it?
Answers given to many of the questions are wrong, and the text is riddled with errors.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book hoping it would help, however with the amount of mistakes in the book I am worried to revise for my tests. It is very confusing at times and I struggled with it massively.
