Ideal for those revising before going on to Further Ed Maths
on 20 January 2002
I decided to do the Open University course MST121 "Using Mathematics" and needed to do some serious revision beforehand. I purchased this book after seeing it mentioned on the OU web site. The book is well laid out and very easy to follow. Unlike some maths books whose content appears to masses of formulae which can be very daunting, this book goes to great lengths to explain all the workings. I quickly regained the maths skills I had forgotten and also picked up some new ones along the way. At times I had difficulty following the OUs revision pack, but when I consulted the appropriate chapter in this book things seemed to fall into place. I would recommend this book to anyone who like me has not used their maths skills in a long time and wishes to go on to Further Education Maths.
