Review: This text is best suited to students who need or want additional practice for foundation Mathematics. Explanations are inadequate for struggling students. The first obstacle is overcoming the distraction of the loud lime green wash used in the revision 2/3 of the text. Surprisingly I did become comfortable with it after 30 mins. The second obstacle is the large size of the text, it is not a book that you would want to be carrying to and from school on a regular basis. This text does score highly on readibilty. Unlike CGP texts, everything in this book is legible, and there are fewer distractions and fewer colours used. Material is presented in a straightforward manner, but I feel that more advice could have been given as to how to reach answers. A major oversight is that there is no advice to check your answers using estimation or an alternative method of calculation. After each element of maths is briefly explained there are questions to check your understanding. Unfortunately the answers to these questions are difficult (sometimes impossible) to find). The back third of of book contains more exam style questions, with brief answers right at the back. For fully worked answers you need to visit the Scholastic Website. Questions are given a 1-5 star difficult rating as a guide. Some of these ratings are naive, but no more so than in other similar revision text. I would have liked to have seen clear guidance on how to use the exam marking system as guide to checking the completeness of your answers. For example, Solve the equations ... (ii) x^2 - 4 = 0 (****) (2 marks) A complacent student might immediately think x^2 = 4 => x = 2. However if they consider that there are two marks for the question not just one mark, then something must be missing from the answer. They then might change their answer to the full expected answer x^2 - 4 = 0 (x-2)(x+2) = 0 x = 2 or x = -2 At the start of the book there is a "Guide how to revise", but it is so badly presented that I consider it to be almost useless. The advantages and disadvantages given for use a Mode as a measure of central tendancy are not correct. They ignore that many data sets will have values skewed heavily towards one or both extremes. For example, if you asked the question "How much do you like Marmite?", sample data given might be. 10, 10, 10, 10, 3, 2, 1, 1, 0, 0. In this case the mode is far from central and very sensitive to extremes. You would not be surprised if a second sample gave you a mode of 0 rather than 10. It might be better if factoring quadratics is dealt together with solving quadractic equations. I am extremely disappointed that Scholastic mirror CGP's bogus marketing message on their cover. ie. "Everything that you need for success ..." . Every text book is imperfect, is incomplete and contains ambiguity. Lying about it creates distrust in a publication, so it is a very stupid thing to do. Most modern text books do nothing more than teach specific prescribed methods to answer the expected exam questions. Such narrow learning by rote is an inadequate way of teaching and contributes to the underperformance of students in many schools. It is also very poor training for life in general. Ideally teaching and practice should challenge you beyond what is expected in an examination. This provides more confidence when faced with exams. Much more important is learning alternative methods to reach an answer or to approximate an answer. Alternative methods are essential for checking your answers and can sometimes provide useful shortcuts. In the real world failure to check calculations costs people their lives and livelyhoods. The same applies to any information. Relying on a single source is inherently unsafe. The main selling point of this revision text book is that some students may find it less intimidating and easier to read. However, the only thing about it that really stands out about it is the lime green.
