This review is from: Understanding Maths: Basic Mathematics Explained (Studymates) (Paperback)
This book is ideal for mature, motivated students who have good reading skills but lack confidence in maths. It covers a lot of ground, from basic topics like multiplying by powers of 10 through to Pythagoras and solving complicated linear equations. The techniques shown are clear and accurate. However, it is not suitable for those with literacy difficulties since there is a lot of text, some of it quite dense, and it is not designed for exam preparation as there are few practice questions included for many of the topics.
