Ronseal, but who proofread it?!
on 15 May 2010
I hadn't studied Maths for more than 10 years (and had hated it at school), but need to pass Intermediate 2 in order to further my education. Basically worked through this book on my own over the last few months and it pretty much does exactly what it says on the tin and prepares you fairly well for the exam in my opinion (I haven't sat the exam yet but consistently get more than 75% doing past papers and passed all the assessments for my self-study course). However...
If anyone was employed to check that the answers are correct then that person was stealing a wage. There are an inexcusable number of errors in it - on numerous occasions I was pulling my hair out wondering why my answer was different to the book (and I presumed wrong as I didn't have much confidence in my ability), only to be told by my tutor 'oh yeah, the book is wrong'! Totally unacceptable in a textbook.
