Hi all <3
I am one of the authors of the MANSW book "Mastering Mathematics", and I'm so glad it's starting to gain traction in the student community now.
So to address a few points:
- Yes! It is comprehensive and has loads of questions. Not just textbook questions, but interesting ones too that show you cool things you can do with the maths that you're currently learning. A lot of those questions are either made up from myself from scratch, or are well-known mathematical results that I've developed high-school friendly proofs of and guided you towards. If you are aiming for a high Band 6, these are the ones for you!
- This is our first ever edition, and yes we have a few typos ='( We're not like the big publishing companies like Cambridge where they have a team of people working on it including answer checking. This book was simply a job done with myself and my lovely co-author Anne. Things get missed and we have an errata on our website to address all the mistakes that we've found so far since printing. We will most likely release a second edition which will correct all of these, as well as updates to address the changes to the syllabus that were made two weeks ago. Yes, NESA just added a new dot point in the syllabus after releasing it and after the books were made.
- We are currently working our hardest to get solutions out, and are about to release five chapters of solutions in the next few days. It's difficult because I'm working my hardest to get the Extension 2 book out in time, and Anne is working her hardest to get solutions out. I hope everybody reading this can understand that we really are doing our best as a team of two <3
Please spread the love everybody!
