Chris Tyreman, BN, is an NHS staff nurse in North Wales. He has taught numeracy to adults via distance learning and evening classes. He is also the author of How to Master the BMAT, How to Master the IELTS and co-author of the best-selling How to Master the UKCAT, all published by Kogan Page.
"I found the simple explanations and examples easy to follow and
was able to quickly refresh my memory and hone my skills in key
areas of calculation. The chapter progression is logical and the
examples clear and easy to follow. I would recommend this text as
appropriate for all nurses, regardless of experience, and
particularly as a refresher for those embarking on degree modules
such as Independent Prescribing where numeracy skills are an
essential element of the course."
*Karen Dorner (DN Sister, RGN), Journal of Community Nursing*
"I have bought this book recently and I cannot believe at how much I have improved in my drug calculations! Brilliant."
"I bought this to help me refresh my basic maths in preparation for the university entry tests for Children's Nursing. It was 27 years since I'd done my Maths O Level, so I was rusty to say the least! This book is fantastic. I believe it is the reason I passed my course entry test."
"The mock tests at the end of the book are invaluable and will be used as a tool for renewing and updating knowledge through my training as a Paediatric Nurse."
"Brilliantly explained, well laid out, good worked examples and essential for all students who are not natural born mathematicians."
