Full support for the current syllabus


`"Amazing book! It covers all the syllabus topics comprehensively, and it has clearly laid-out and separated sections so that you don't get confused. In my exam, there was not a single question that was unfamiliar because I had already encountered at least one exercise of its type in the worked examples in the book. A truly remarkable book and I recommend it vividly."'
