I'm of the conviction, which many of my colleagues share, that there is no substitution for a solid basis in the educational fundamentals. Tricks and pep-talks only go so far. At some point, students need to sit down and learn the things they don't understand, and practice them. This book provides just that. Its strength is in the clear, focused presentation of fundamental concepts in grammar, literature, and mathematics, and the copious, well-explained practice examples that accompany each topic. Each of the six-tests comes with step-by-step explanations for every single question. I don't know of another prep-book out there that is as thorough. In my experience, this level of attention is not available unless you are willing to spend several hundreds on a commercial prep course.
I had never heard of this publisher, but I was thrilled to find that somebody had taken the time to produce an actual tool that I, as an educator, could utilize, without making excuses for its lackadaisical presentation of content. Cannot recommend highly enough, for students and teachers alike.
I encountered multiple errors in the worked out examples of maths problems. For instance, in Chapter 4, 0062 Question Topic, the problem asks for the dimensions in FEET and in the worked out example the book gives the result in metres. There are errors with the symbols < and >. Sometimes the book treats this as if they were "greater than or equal to" instead of just "greater than".
The book does not have page numbers which is annoying especially because it contains an index. Totally useless ig pages are not numbered...
Still, the book teaches good strategies which are all exemplified when presented to the reader.
