This is an excellent student book for Functional Maths. There is lots of clear and simple information, as well as useful examples and practice exercises. I particularly like the way there is a reasoning given for learning each skill, as well as the way it is explained both in and out of the context. The Exam Cafe is excellent, with lots of useful hints and tips for managing all the skills needed on the day. The book is split between level 1 and level 2 and it is also clear to see the distinction between the two, which is also useful for progression and building on previous skills. An excellent publication which links beautifully with the teachers' version and provides a no-nonsense approach to Functional Maths, which will benefit any student preparing for the big day.
