A comprehensive guide to most, if not all the mathematical techniques used by an undergraduate physicist (or engineer). Starting from A-Level basics right through to more complex techniques, the book is well structured with plenty of worked examples. The only downside is that some of the worked examples only cover the easier material in some chapters.

This covers nearly all of the maths required by undergraduate theoretical chemists and physicists in a non-pretentious, easy-to-follow way. It's very easy to find the exact topic you need, and it has extensive worked examples. It's excellent both for self-teaching, and useful a quick reference for later in your academic career.
The book makes references to earlier chapters when describing a topic. If a topic is too difficult, then you can quickly flip to a more basic description at the beginning of the book.
