“I would recommend any CGP titles above Key Stage 1...”

Good Points
Stunningly good value

General Comments
I would recommend any CGP titles above Key Stage 1 (which are not that good in my opinion). This book is a complete guide to Key Stage 2 maths. Most helpfully, every method is clearly explained to the reader, so you know what you're supposed to be doing, and how. This is a great help to parents supporting their children, both to clarify current methods used in schools and to remind parents who have forgotten how to solve particular problems (although this begs the question of whether you need to know it in the first place!) My only gripe is that they don't show the alternative method of subtraction, where you borrow to the top and pay back at the bottom. This is far easier - try subtracting 385 from 9000 using the borrowing from the top method and you'll see why!
