Reviews

'The perfect resource for any health care student that wants to improve their number skills and increase their confidence. The book contains lots of visual aids and exercises, going right back to basics. A must read' -
Natasha Eccles, student, BN Child Nursing, University of Glamorgan

'This book is a breath of fresh air. It starts by giving the reader a sound understanding of numeracy, before applying this to real life situations. A must read for every student of health care, and for a fair proportion of those already qualified' -
Patric Devitt, University of Salford


Although the introduction aims to reassure [the reader], there is a serious message about the importance of numeracy in achieving high standards of care and its relationship to professional accountability. The book is well structured and easy to follow. It reinforces the rules and strategies that are taught at school, which we should all revisit and practise, especially under pressure. I recommend it as a personal reference guide for qualified and pre-registration staff. -- Karen Campbell * Cancer Nursing Practice *
[The book] covers all the areas that a healthcare professional will need to improve skills. The book could assist in teaching nursing students, and others, about this important aspect of healthcare practice. -- Ruth Taylor * Primary Health Care *
This excellent and highly accessible book is a great resource for learners, practitioners and teachers alike, covering a comprehensive array of mathematical principles and applying them to various contexts...Everyday situations are used to illustrate points throughout the book along with specific clinical applications, which serves to engage the reader and increase the accessibility of the text. -- Alison Taylor, senior lecturer in Child Health Nursing, School of Health Sciences, University of Brighton
