This book is fantastic and has really helped me re-fresh my maths knowledge in preparation for my Functional skills exam.

Its structured extremely well and includes many brilliant examples for each subject matter. Each example is broken down into clear, concise and easy to follow steps which allowed me to understand each and every subject matter. The book also includes a reasonable amount of various questions with the answers included.

My only concern is that the book advertises itself as Functional Maths Skills level 2. However, upon performing a couple of on-line Functional Skills level 2 tests, they are significantly harder than the content of the book. Ideally I would have liked to see some more challenging examples and tests in the book to prepare myself for the online tests, and ultimately my exam.

Overall I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn the basics of functional maths, and its also fantastic value for money. Definitely worth 5 stars.

A very solid and well - written guide to gaining the skills needed to pass the Functional Skills Maths test at Level 2.

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 tasks used by the boards in tests have increased in difficulty since this book was written and those taking the tests may find them more challenging than the examples given here. This isn't such an issue with the Entry 3 and Level 1 books in the series. However there are practice test papers online for anyone wishing to see more up to date examples and a Google search should quickly identify them.

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 had to take an exam, an equivalent of GCSE Maths for teacher training. I failed my first attempt on measures, shapes and spaces. I had considered private tuition but encouraged by reviews I bought the book, worked through the book over 2 days and passed at 70% mark. Truly simple and informative.

I can thoroughly recommend this book. I had 1 month to get 'my head around' Math's again and I would not have passed my Level 2 without it! It is very concise with an excellent mix of theory/practice i.e not too mind boggling! As a mature student over 50 I found this book extremely helpful! Thank you
