      Used as a set book and gets success for many. A good back up

      I'm a maths teacher and currently use this as my main textbook for teaching Intermediate 2 maths.

      The text book is broken down into the four units of intermediate 2 and each outcome within the unit has a separate chapter within the unit section. Each chapter then works through the knowledge required for that outcome. The opening exercise is always a recap of the required knowledge before starting the topic. For each new topic, at least one worked example is given and then a number of exercises are available. More challenging questions (those detailed at A/B grade level) are usually highlighted in a green box.

      If this is being used as your main text book then you should have no need of your own copy as rushing ahead of the course is not always advisable. You may wish to consider some of the other options for an additional alternative version.

      If you are looking for a backup text book to support your learning then I would say this is a good textbook for those aiming to obtain an A or B grade. The worked examples given are often not enough to deal with some of the more challenging questions and as is often the case with this publisher, the jump to harder questions can be quite sudden.

      If you are self-studying or have not been given a textbook then again this is a great book to challenge your skills and abilities. If you are struggling however I would recommend the TeeJay books as being more accessible.

      I use this text book daily and would recommend it for self / home study for more able pupils.
