I now have iGCSE students as well as standard GCSE students so thought it was about time I invested in an appropriate book! This book does have a slightly dated appearance compared to the Mastering Mathematics series which I love. However the book is still good. Lots and lots of exercises and not too many (boring) words for the students to plough through. Good clear diagrams. I particularly liked the Circle Theorems chapter - plenty of practice and a useful summary of the theorems at the end of the chapter. -- Mrs Bridget Jones Abigail Lambert

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
