a core resource for students of pure mathematics
on 27 March 2007
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 work through the topics. There are numerous exercises at the end of each chapter, which will test even the most able of students. Explanation can be a little thin in some parts, but with careful study all examples can be followed without too much effort.
I still use this book today as a quick reference and would thoroughly recommend it to any students of mathematics.
