I used the Pledger text to teach myself/revise the topics, then the Rowland book to fully develop and consolidate my knowledge.
I have a few problems with the way some of the content is presented. For instance in chapter 2 (Numerical solution of equations) for problems involving linear interpolation, I found that the choice of similar triangles chosen only made the arithmetic more difficult. I also felt that this type of presentation was teaching procedural techniques, and that weaker students would be learning this method parrot fashion. You have the same sort of thing for finding the inverse of a matrix in chapter 4.
Overall I found the book easy to follow using the worked examples. In my case, I skimmed through each chapter doing a few problems on the way, and then did the mixed exercise for each chapter. I found the CD-ROM extremely useful, as there were some occaisions when I obtained the wrong answer. Checking on the disk is a lot quicker than finding my silly mistakes. Also, it occured to me that if I were to teach this unit, the CD-ROM would be brilliant for displaying examples on the board, and so would dramatically cut down what I would have to write on the board.
The inclusion of the CD-ROM much improves the product and gives the buyer a feeling that they have much better value.
The diagrams are clear and colourul and its really useful if you want to teach yourself (although some guidance is useful)
The exercises are varied and provide examples for any types ofthe question. Some of the answers in the back of the book are wrong but they are obviously wrong so you dont worry about it!
Overall, Im really please I bought this book,I know its going to help me immensly!
I would not, however, cause this to hinder your purchase of this book; It does provide excellent examples in solving the questions that are posed, and contains a solution bank in a CD which is very useful.
In summery, this is the best book to get if your studying Further Maths!
