Makes Maths A Level "easy peasy lemon squeezy"!
on 1 September 2010
I LOVE Richard Parsons and his CGP range of revision books! Wow! How does he do it?
Like so many CGP books, you can expect plenty of colour, pictures and humour. The style is conversational, light-hearted and reassuring - as if a friend were helping you and telling you not to freak out at all those long, turgid-sounding mathematical words!
The genius of these books is their ability to be both thorough and concise. New topics are developed slowly. Each section explains the basics thoroughly to ensure brilliant clarity. I understand what I am doing and why. Later, the topic jogs along at pace. Because it gets to the point quickly, I manage to keep hold of gist.
In summary this book makes maths easy to understand!
I even feel motivated! Because each topic is bite-sized, I can whittle off a quick topic or two at a moment's notice.
If you have used CGP Maths books before, then be aware that there aren't any "Acid Tests" unfortunately. But there are still end-of-topic revision-tests to get you practising all that newly understood info!
