It was very difficult to keep my son, who is a very able child interested in Maths as most of the work they did at school was far too easy for him. This book was recommended by his teacher , who thought that he should not just waste his time doing random work, but rather questions that would keep his focus. I was quite pleased with this book, as was he. every other day, I would mark out some sums for him, which he solved independently. So if you have a chid who is taking the 11+ exams or if you just want to keep them sharp at Maths, I would higly recommend this book. Really really good. Great help for mums, homeschooling and extra homework . increases the childs confidence as well. In my case, complacency was the issue as well. SO this book really challenged him and inspired him to do his best. Highly recommend it.
I bought this for my daughters sat tests next year , well set out and formatted book so she can clearly see how to approach each type of question. An invaluable tool for parents to work with their children.
