4.0 out of 5 stars Depends what you need it for, 14 Feb 2010
By 
This review is from: Senior Mathematical Challenge: The UK National Mathematics Contest 1988-1996 (Paperback)
This book does have a list of good problems. If you're trying to just experience some thought provoking problems which don't occur in the curriculum/syllabus then it's well worth it. If you're preparing for some competition or gaining knowledge, then i wouldn't reccomend it (unless you're really widening your repertoire). These problems are good but, as stated in the book, maths problems have a shelf life, many of these in the book have expired. A useful resource list for more material is extremely helpful though, in certain solutions it refers to these books and gives you a brief sentence of information regarding subjects, ie number theory, which does help massively. However, if you're completely dumbfounded by a problem, you may have to develop your thoughts when studying the solutions. But that may be unlikely due to the mathematical capability of people buying this book

This review is from: Senior Mathematical Challenge: The UK National Mathematics Contest 1988-1996 (Paperback)
The book has the National Mathematics Contest papers (for GCSE students) from 1988 to 1996, with solutions and comments.
A definite must for those who enjoy a wide variety of mathematical puzzles not needing a maths degree!
