A good no nonsense book. Simply follow the instructions and you should pass the tests. The practice questions are realistic and even similar to the real thing. Good luck with the teacher training.

This is a very helpful guide. The questions in it are very representitive of the ones you get in the real test, so you can really prepare yourself. The answers section is also good. Each answer has a 'key point' which shows you how to arrive at the answer if you got it wrong. This really does allow you to learn from your mistakes.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to brush up their skills for the test.

I've just passed all three of the QTS skills tests today, and I know Iwould not have been able to do the numeracy test without this little book. It has all you need to know, and is very accessible. The book explainsthe basics you will need to know, providing many examples and practicequestions. Highly recommended for any trainee teacher as the book willreinforce your existing skills and help you to gain new ones, giving youthe confidence to take, and pass, the QTS skills tests.

To be honest when I first heard about this book I thought that it would be full of incomprehensible statistics and complicated mathematical problems, the same I thought the numeracy would be like.
However going through the book shows that as long as you use little "shortcuts" and techniques, then there is no reason why trainee teachers cannot pass the numeracy test. This book has proven to be invaluable to me and if you want to get QTS then this book should be your first port of call to help either brush up your skills or help develop them.

This book is a must for anyone who is afraid of the Numeracy Skills Test. As a beginning teacher myself who has just passed the test first time with the aid of this book, I thoroughly recommend it. The practice questions are identical to the types of question you will have in the on-line test. The book specifically helps you to master the terminology of education statistics that all the questions are couched in. Once you understand the terminology, the questions really are not that difficult. Mark Patmore has done his homework well and therefore I give this book five stars!

Having failed the test once I was dreading sitting it again, but this book was a real help. It provides practise questions that are real representations of the actual test.The only thing missing is the timings, but if you use this along with the practise CD then the test will be a breeze. I sat it again today and with the help of the book passed!

An excellent and practical guide. A real 'must have' for those pupils who fear the dreaded numeracy test. The only thing that the book did not prepare me for was the timing, a crucial aspect of the actual test, that needed coverage.

I took my numeracy skills test yesterday and passed first time which I was quite a surprise. I ordered this book to help me in my revision. I have to say that it is OK but not brilliant. It gives you lots of example questions for you to try and practise for the real exam. It also does have some revisions on the different areas of maths that the exam covers but does not go into great deal. Where I do believe this book falls down heavily is in the mental arithmetic section. The answers are given and it does give you the working out but most of the working out is very difficult to understand and it doesn't give you strategies to use in the exam.

I would say buy the book because of the practice questions but don't expect miracles.
