2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 21 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Level Mathematics for Edexcel: Mechanics M2 (New Alevel) (Paperback)
The book is too short and attempts to span a number of concepts that are not clearly introduced (or in fact needed for the exam).
There are, as per usual, a stack of errors in the answers. I have this alongside the Pledger one and for once I must say I use the Pledger book more.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor attempt to fill the gap for M2 textbooks, 26 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Level Mathematics for Edexcel: Mechanics M2 (New Alevel) (Paperback)
I took A-level maths fifteen years ago and have now repeated the course as a mature student. I picked this up to complement the Keith Pledger M2 book and found that the only thing it offered over the Edexcel mainstay was frustration.

For me, the main downside is the lack of workings for questions: only the answers are printed - so if you can't do the question, you've no way of learning how to - a fatal flaw. There are a number of examples in each section, but given the nature of the material, they aren't able to cover all the situations posed by the exercise questions.

I also sensed that the author assumed a considerable amount of knowledge, and failed to clearly explain the basics. The material occasionally edges beyond the A-level syllabus. Whilst useful for anyone studying in general, I felt this might unnecessarily complicate matters for those focused solely on A-levels.
