  • The content is excellent and is the most comprehensive match to the 0580 extended syllabus that I have reviewed. The experience of the author is apparent in the construction of the chapters, examples and exercises. It is a very valuable resource to teachers that may be teaching 0580 IGCSE as it so closely matches the syllabus. - Teacher review of Pemberton Mathematics (First Edition)
  • Very clear layout with lots of practice questions. We are working through chronologically using the CD PowerPoints before doing selected questions from a group of sections. This book is thorough yet to the point. It has everything we look for in IGCSE material - very clear easy to follow layout, with to the point explanations and thorough practice. - Teacher Review of Pemberton Mathematics (First Edition), Amazon
