1.0 out of 5 stars Do I trust this book?, 13 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Pass the QTS Numeracy Skills Test with Ease: 2012 - 2013 (Paperback)
It looked as though this book might contain some useful tips, but I was pretty upset to find, on page 19, the answer to 15 x 13 is given as 210 instead of 195. The author then goes on to work out 1.5 x 1.3 as 2.10 and 0.15 x 1.3 as .210. I have not been through the rest of the book so I have no idea whether this is the only error.

I bought this book for someone who wanted help preparing for the professional skills test, as she is not confident in maths. I am now not sure whether to give it to her after all, as errors like this are likely to just confuse her even further. At £6.26 for a slim paperback, I think it's pretty disgraceful that it has not been properly proof read.

Real Apologies for error on page 19. Be rest assured this has been corrected. Any purchase made after the 14th November should not have this error. Some orders made on the 12th of November or before may not have arrived until the 15th -17th of November, so may still have this error. Please email me at valinasser@gmail.com and I can send you a correct pdf copy of this page if required or a new book in exchange for your old copy. Hope this helps any concerns.
