  • This is the best Maths book for Cambridge IGCSE Extended. My son was struggling with Maths and was getting about 35% in Core Maths tests. After working through this book he is now scoring above 80% for Extended Maths tests. Any type of question you can possibly imagine could be asked in an exam is in this book. - Parent review of Complete Mathematics (Third Edition), Amazon
  • Of the 33 students in one of our IGCSE Extended Maths class last year, 25 got A passes (including 8 A*'s with one student on 100%) which is a credit to the comprehensive quality of the Rayner (Complete Mathematics) textbook. - Mathematics Teacher of Complete Mathematics (Third Edition), New Zealand
