Dear Kevin

My name is Oliver Wright. I am writing to thank you because if it wasn’t for you I would have failed maths in Matric!

In October last year I was sitting on an average of 31% for maths and I hadn’t passed a maths test in about two years. I then began using the Maths Handbook and Study Guide to learn for my Matric. My final mark was 56%. I would never have thought that I was capable of passing maths before I started using your book. So thank you very much for helping me to do the impossible, I am eternally grateful.

  • Earlier this year I bought the Maths Handbook and Study Guide to use for extra practice and to self-study concepts at home. I would truly like to take this opportunity to send my gratitude to the people, specifically Mr Kevin Smith, who compiled this book. The book has become my maths bible. It is so easy to understand, and being a student who didn’t enjoy maths because I found it very difficult. After using the Maths Handbook and Study Guide I am able to grasp the concepts which are demonstrated so well. The format of the examples and the exercises are done so well and have really assisted me with my mathematics this year. I am so surprised that my marks have rocketed from 60’s to 80’s since I bought this book! You have my deepest gratitude
