Since the launch of the Human Genome project in 1990, understanding molecular and clinical genetics has become an essential aspect of modern medical education. Solid knowledge of genetics is now crucial to a host of healthcare professionals including primary care physicians, nurses and physician assistants. This third edition takes this crucial information and incorporates it into a student-friendly format that focuses on the core concept of human genetics. Each chapter uses the same problem-based approach as the previous editions, and addresses the important role of genetics and disease by integrating molecular and clinical genetics.
Assuming GCSE as a starting point (National Curriculum Level 7/8), this A-Level mathematics text provides transitional material in the early chapters for students from a variety of mathematical backgrounds, and caters for a wide spread of ability. It contains the core for A-Level mathematics as outlined in all examination board syllabuses, and additional coverage is included to cater for the pure maths content of A-Level mathematics courses combining pure maths with mechanics / statistics / decision (discrete) maths, and the first half of A-Level pure mathematics.
Written for the Edexcel Syllabus B and similar schemes offered by the Awarding Bodies, this book incorporates modern approaches to mathematical understanding. It provides worked examples and exercises to support the text.

Extended Mathematics for Cambridge IGCSE provides for the second year of a two-year course leading to the Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics Extended Level examination from University of Cambridge International Examinations. This is the second of two books (Core and Extended), which together completely cover the syllabus for the Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics Extended Level. Students may either study the whole of the Core course in their first year, followed by the Extended in their second year, or they may study 1 from Core followed immediately by 1 from Extended. Either way, the books are designed to be worked through sequentially and can be used both as classroom textbooks and for self-study.
