5.0 out of 5 stars a core resource for students of pure mathematics
I have owned this book for many years now and it has served me well throughout A-Level mathematics and beyond. Contrary to other reviews listed here, it is well worth buying and provides a great introduction to the fundamentals of 'advanced' mathematics. It is clearly set out with each chapter being self-contained. Therefore the student can select the order in which to...

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe just a bit too challenging.
This book was published in the early 1980s, and much of the text is taken from their earlier books (Pure Mathematics 1 and 2) published in the mid-1970s, so the book is much less accessible than many contemporary books available. It is a very good book in terms of standards and scope, but assumes a sound prior knowledge of mathematics which most people will not have today...

4.0 out of 5 stars Provides a thorough grounding in pure maths, 23 Jan 2009
This review is from: Mathematics - The Core Course for A Level (Paperback)
I'm using this book and the sequel (further pure mathematics) to study for maths modules for my chemistry degree at Nottingham and I'm finding it invaluable in helping my maths.

Similarly to another reviewer, it is very structured, hence the title 'A COURSE in pure mathematics and so it makes excellent book for those wanting to understand the subject more thoroughly rather than learning techniques. Because it is quite compact, the information is condensed and it has been precisely written, which is what you want from a maths book. Engineering mathematics was recommended for my course but I find with a lot of new books that the authors don't lay the foundations correctly. This book has gems of information that I didn't know when I did my A-level maths to really understand pure maths.

My only issue with this is that the authors don't provide the full answers for questions in a separate answer book but this isn't much of a problem if you have a teacher to ask.

By A Customer
This review is from: Mathematics - The Core Course for A Level (Paperback)
i don't recommend this book to any one wants to study a good mathematics, it is a very poor book that does not give idle examples to help understanding. what's more the provided exercises are not so clear to the reader
