On passing both the Literacy and Numeracy Professional Skills Tests first time, I can definitely say that this textbook is an excellent revision resource!
The fact that the book highlights what you should expect when taking the test is very reassuring, and the comprehensive coverage of all the relevant topics was useful when it came to knowing exactly what to revise.
In addition, the use of clear example questions and answers, and the fact that it includes numerous practice papers were without a doubt two of the best features of the book. Using these tools meant that I could monitor my performance and finely tune any weaknesses with ease.
This book left me feeling incredibly confident and I would whole-heartedly recommended it to anyone looking for stress-free preparation or a comprehensive guide to passing the tests!
Got this book a few weeks before my tests were booked and found it to be very beneficial on both the numeracy and literacy sections. It is clear to follow and allows you to work through the different parts, systematically, so you can work out which areas you may need to concentrate on.
The book has sections of practice questions, which I found incredibly useful when I was completing the tests as I knew exactly how they would be set out and what to expect. This made me feel a lot more relaxed and I was, therefore, able to pass both tests first time.
Would definitely recommend for anyone looking to booking their tests.
