"I've been using the Mechanics book for over a week now and - as expected - it's fantastic. I find it useful to use the book as I complete a past paper to apply the knowledge to different question types and my understanding has improved considerably! As I've always found Mechanics slightly harder than the other A Level units I was worried I wouldn't understand parts of it even with the book. However, as it is so easy to read with clear explanations I did not have this problem at all!"

The results...
"I got an A in my maths modules after all, particularly Mechanics which I was previously awful at. In the end I got A*AA. An A in maths seemed a way off at the beginning of the year!"
Ryan, now studying at Oxford
