Well structured book, which explains the material really well,
This review is from: Further Maths for the Physical Sciences (Paperback)
This is an excellent book which explains the material really well. The best thing about it is the way it is structured, with fast track questions to see whether you can skip a section, and then ready to study questions, to make sure that you have the background knowledge to understand the chapter. Examples are clearly explained, as well as answers to questions in the text. It doesn't miss out crucial lines in a derivation, and it doesn't say 'This is obviously...' when it's not obvious to me, and if it was, I wouldn't have needed to look it up in the first place.
The maths is backed up by examples from physical sciences, which is really helpful and puts the whole thing in context.
It didn't cover all my course, so I had to use other books for part of the course. But it was so much better than the books which did cover the whole course, I'd buy it again.
A criticism for the publisher to put right - the index gives the section number, but there is no easy way to find a section, because it is not written on each page. The same problem in the answer sections, the answers are R1, T1 etc but doesn't say what chapter.
