Don'¬"t let your mathematical skills fail you! In Engineering, Construction and Science examinations, marks are often lost through carelessness or from not properly understanding the mathematics involved. When there are only a few marks on offer for a part of a question there may be full marks for a right answer and none for a wrong one, regardless of the thought that went into the answer. If you want to avoid losing these marks, by improving the clarity both of your mathematical work and your mathematical understanding then this is the book for you.We all make mistakes; who doesn'¬"t? But mistakes can be avoided when we understand why we make them.Taking mistakes commonly made by undergraduate students as its entry point, this book looks not only at how you can prevent mistakes, but provides a primer for the fundamental mathematical skills required for your degree discipline. Whether you struggle with different types of interest rates, geometry, statistics, calculus or any of the other mathematical areas vital to your degree, this book will guide you around the pitfalls.
