AQA A Level Maths
Author: David Baker
This book provides six mock papers for the new 2017 AQA A Level (first exams in 2019). With rubric at the front, and space to write answers directly onto the page, this book provides realistic practice of the actual exam. The full mark scheme is available on this website.
Helps to ease the transition between school/college and university mathematics by (re)introducing readers to a range of topics that they will meet in the first year of a degree course in the mathematical sciences, refreshing their knowledge of basic techniques and focussing on areas that are often perceived as the most challenging. Each chapter starts with a "Test Yourself" section so that readers can monitor their progress and readily identify areas where their understanding is incomplete. A range of exercises, complete with full solutions, makes the book ideal for self-study.
