  • [I'm] no longer experiencing fear of maths thanks to this book ... I have recently passed my level one in functional skills maths all because of this book and have enrolled on level 2 in functional skills ... For anyone who lacks confidence in maths, poor skills etc. this book is great. It is a wonderful start before starting a GCSE in maths. Thank you. - Amazon reviewer (of a previous edition)
  • [I] recommend the Functional Skills version to anyone who is starting out teaching functional maths. It can be used as a self-study guide by students, covers levels 1 and 2 together and, importantly for the new teacher, has the answers in the back. - Amazon reviewer (of a previous edition)
  • Very easy to follow for my learners ... fantastic. - Amazon reviewer (of a previous edition)
  • Lovely book, really helpful, straight forward explanations, and the added bonus of being able to access free worksheets! Well worth the money. - Amazon reviewer (of a previous edition)
