Inspired me to go a bit futher with Ian Morison's excellent Introduction to Astronomy and Cosmology, which explores the same ideas but in more depth and with more of the maths. Finding this one a bit of challenge, but getting there, and Moche definiteky deserves some of the credit.
The book itself is well laid out and goes through the subject in a methodical manner with:
Aims/goals at the beginning of the chapter
The subject material
Worked examples for mathematical formulas [if applicable]
Self test questions on the chapter [with answers]
This has/will help me with Astronomy exams coming up next year.
The chapters are well sequenced and there is a number of opportunities to review your learning with some questions at the end of most of the sections.
