OK questions, answers leave a lot to be desired,

This review is from: Revise Edexcel GCSE Mathematics Spec B Higher Revision Workbook (REVISE Edexcel Maths) (Paperback)
I got this book as I'm teaching edexcel maths GCSE but, as a private tutor, I don't have access to all the previous online exam papers. I had hoped for more, but there is only one example exam paper for each module. And you don't get a detailed mark scheme for them. There are many other questions though, so it's not too bad.
The questions and answers were fine for me, but for students using this book the answers are often unbelievably inadequate. For example, when asked to plot an enlarged version of a given shape the answer merely states "enlarged shape". A student would have no clue whether they had done it correctly or not. And when asked to explain if the mean, median or mode best described a set of data the answer was given as "Student's explanation". Unbelievable!
Some questions are "guided" but the guidance would often be inadequate for a student who did not already know how to do the question.
So there are lots of useful practise questions but the quality of the answers lets the book down.
