One of the clearest and most straightforward texts ever published, "Understanding Mechanics" covers all the topics required in the single-subject A Level. It is equally appropriate for those preparing for other Mathematics examinations at A Level and for students on technical courses in further and higher education. The Key Points are: principles introduced in a simple and direct manner with worked examples; and ample opportunity given for practice with questions and exercises carefully graded to provide a steady progression. Each chapter closes with a comprehensive selection of recent examination questions. Answers are given at the back of the book.
