The classic book at this level.,
This review is from: Mathematics - The Core Course for A Level (Paperback)
As has been noted, this book dates from an era (mid 70s to early 80s) when A Level Maths was a more uncompromising preposition than it is today. It is an excellent book, but most of today's students will struggle with it. It doesn't hold your hand or teach the basics, they are assumed. I recently saw it (along with sister book "Further Pure Mathematics") as one of a few books recommended by Cambridge University at this level. Needless to say that some of the topics are no longer examined, but if you are looking for a rigorous book, that with ability and persistence will give you an excellent grounding, this is it. A bonus is the 1970s A Level questions..compare with today's questions!
