"Those who appreciate Book 1 will find in Book 2 an equally challenging and enjoyable experience. There is more than enough here to meet the needs of the most able pupils." David E. Hanson, Leader of the ISEB 11+ Mathematics setting team, member of the ISEB 13+ Mathematics setting team, Member of the ISEB Editorial Board "These books provide a thorough grounding in maths. Detailed explanations are given through graded exercises, practical work, investigations and puzzles. The material is neatly laid-out, well organised with clear instructions and excellent diagrams, and very informative. The author even brings in fascinating snippets of history throughout the books: how the Egyptians wrote fractions, the history of the penny and of percentages, the origin of imperial units and much more. For instance, did you know that it was the Greeks who established the 'foot' as their basic unit of length and that, according to legend, this Greek unit was based on the measurement of Hercules' foot? I am very impressed by the quality of material, which is very substantial both in content and in weight (these books are heavy!) and would definately recommend them as a complete course."
