Everything you need to pass maths level 1 & 2 functional skills.
on 13 June 2016
Can't recommend this book enough. Has everything you need to pass the maths level 1 & 2 functional skills. I'm an adult learner and left school 17 years ago with no gcse. I've always had a fear of maths and hated it with a passion. Most jobs, colleges and universities state that maths FS level 2 is a minimum requirement so towards the end of February 2016 i decided to enroll on the maths functional skills course with Learndirect. After the assessment i was told that i was working at entry level 3 and was put on the level 1 course. At first i was struggling and a friend of mine recommend me this book.... god send! I purchased this book along with the CGP functional skills level 1 & 2 books and within 2 months I passed the City & Guilds FS level 1 maths scoring 87%. I then enrolled on the City & Guilds FS level 2 maths course. I took my test last wednesday and received my results today and am happy to say that i passed scoring over 80%. The best advice i can give is if you're studying at level 1 then the CGP functional skills level 1 book will be more than enough to pass. If you're studying at level 2 then i highly recommend using this book along with the CGP functional skills level 2 book. Find out who your examining body is then go to their website and download past papers and practice practice practice! When you first receive this book it can be quite daunting at first as it is 300 pages compared to the CGP books which are 100 pages but persevere with it, keep practicing and you will 100% pass. Trust me, if i can do it, then anyone can lol. Good luck!
