I picked this up in a jumble sale and now use it to teach myself the A level maths I never did at school. I greatly admire the sparse text that says exactly what it means and what you need to know without any flannel, meaning that you can read it and look things up quickly and easily. You also learn what is needed in maths: to focus exactly on what is meant. I disagree with those who say the book is hard. Each step of the reasoning is explained by Bostock and Chandler, unlike some maths authors who believe that students have some kind of moral duty to work out certain essential steps for themselves as if they have nothing else to think about. I wish all textbooks were this complete, concise and clear. I'm now looking for volume 2.

Buy this book. It is hard, but that's good. Get a foundation of this book, and you can't go wrong

classic vintage textbook.
for those of you thinking of buying this book i would say you first need to be around AS level, or are comfortable with A level C1 core maths.
or quite simply just attempt chapter 1 and see what you think.

Very good book for A-Level Pure Mathematics. Loads of good and varied questions to test your knowledge. Highly recommend this book if you want to challenge yourself and get an A grade

Excellent book (except my grandson who is doing A-levels) says his work is not as hard as some of the work here. Tough!!!
It arrived on time, in good condition.

Great book for a first year undergraduate engineer or mathematician to get to grips with calculus. Old school but very effective!
