Some useful information but still quite complex
on 2 December 2011
This book has some really interesting and helpful suggestions BUT for some of them you do have to have an understanding of maths.
Although this book is written for the American market there are references to the UK educational system and the author was educated in England, so it is relevant.
Some of the crib sheets (essentially an extensive glossary) in the second half of the book - which the author indicates are useful as 'reminders' of maths which one learnt at school - are really quite complex - and I do know some maths!
There is a very interesting section about dealing with multiple choice examinations and examinations in general, although some of the time indication which the author suggests that some questions should take (2 or 3 seconds for instance) are absurd, since you'd have to be a maths genius to do them in that time!
So, in summary, a useful book which contains some valuable suggestions BUT some of the suggestions need an understanding of maths to use.
