This is the officially endorsed course text and as such represents the best text book offering for the Additional Maths OCR qualification. It covers all of the topics in a clear fashion and is well presented. However, I would say that it needs more questions for practice and it lacks some of the more challenging, quirky-style of problem which candidates will meet on the examination. Overall it is a good text book but will need to be supplemented with other material (such as the practice book!). -- Mr Stephen Black * Abigail Lambert * contains all the information you'll need for the course as well as a HUGE number of questions for practice and makes it all very interesting. * Amazon reviewer *
