A very solid and well - written guide to gaining the skills needed to pass the Functional Skills Maths test at Level 1.

There are good explanations right across the curriculum combined with worked examples and plenty of practice questions make this a very good choice for anyone wanting to improve their skills with the maths used in everyday life. At the end of the book are several tasks set out in the same format as the tasks in the tests organised by various examination boards.

The English used in the book is clear and unambiguous, unlike some textbooks this book pays heed to the fact that the English used should be within the same level of understanding as the Maths. Graphics are simple, clear and well-labelled, the font used is Arial 14 which makes text very easy to read.
It's a large format so not the most portable book but this leaves plenty of room for readers to make their own notes in the margins to aid understanding. A good index makes finding topics quick and easy.

Answers to the test tasks and are given in the book with the crucial reminder for those taking tests that if they use an incorrect answer to work out the answer for a further question, they will gain marks as long as their working out is correct. There is a useful Glossary as well to act as a quick memory jogger.
As a Functional Skills tutor I have no hesitation in recommending this book for home study and for tutors wanting a good basic textbook for classroom use.

i brought this for a course i was doing at college but as soon as i got the book the course had changed. it's a great book to help you try and understand mathematics. I struggle with maths and this helped me slightly.

Good book - currently doing level 1 maths, but would be better if you actually could do the scale drawings yourself, rather than have them done for you.

Using this with my Functional Skills students who found the Interactive Resources on BKSB difficult to digest. This has worked a treat so far. Broken down well and easy to follow. Would recommend. Good value for money.

I swear by CGP books, which I use with adult learners. Just love the way they are laid out, easy to read, easy to use.

This is the highest recommendation. An 18 year old who has seen lots of what the world of school and college maths has to offer now has he book of of her own with explanations and practice. Independent individual study at last. Support still on tap when needed.

It is OK for revision or to aid understanding as the English is very clear as well to the point. However, I felt the standard the book use is not par to the actual standard use in real exams. A good staring off point but a GCSE book would be better if you are doing level 1/2 maths.
