This friendly self-help workbook covers mathematics essential to first-year undergraduate scientists and engineers. In the second edition of this highly successful textbook the author has completely revised the existing text and added a totally new chapter on vectors. Mathematics underpins all science and engineering degrees, and this may cause problems for students whose understanding of the subject is weak.
In this book Jenny Olive uses her extensive experience of teaching and helping students by giving a clear and confident presentation of the core mathematics needed by students starting science or engineering courses.

I have just finished chapter 1, so my review is for my impression of the book thus far.
I will try to update this review as I complete subsequent chapters. The book is huge. The pages are as wide as A4 and a little shorter in height. There are pages, including the answers and index, so a lot of material is covered.

This is exactly the type of maths book I have been looking for. The authors of Core Maths have made excellent choices in the questions they ask and the order in which they are asked. Core Maths' main failing is that little explanation is given. It often gives one example question, loosely shows how the answer can be derived, and then gives 30 exercises, lots of which cannot be done from the information in the example alone.
It is sometimes satisfying to figure these out for yourself, but this takes a lot of time. Maths: A Student's Survival Guide is a self-help book designed for those teaching themselves without attending classes. It succeeds in this.

The author has written down what she would say if she was sitting next to you, explaining the subject matter. Even the answers at the back of the book are explained. In the other two maths books I have, the final, simplest answers are provided, but in this book the answers mostly show the question, show each step in how to work it out, and then show the final answer. Furthermore, the author occassionally writes entire paragraphs in the answers section explaining the problem, and some common pitfalls that students tend to make.
The text itself is amazing.
Maths: A Student's Survival Guide : Jenny Olive :
It's a maths book with more words than numbers. You can preview the first few pages on Amazon, and I recommend you read those pages and do the included sums to see if this book is what you are looking for. Chapter 1 starts with a self-test.
