My DD is P2 this year,

I bought these for her:
Mathematics Challenging Problems by Andrew Er
--- Because it covers the same topics, this is more helpful for her in my DD case

Problem Solving Process in Mathematics by Fabian Ng
--- Bought for her just before SA2, just for her to try a 'deeper' one, not really useful for her case

But I think, past years paper are very useful, in term of topics and quality

Regards

yes, i agree. To prepare my girl for her P1 exam, i let her tried exam papers from different sch and i think that is a good way to expose her to different std & different examination formats.

Thanks ttlkbs and peterch
for shareing. thats really great. my dd is weak in maths. so I am hunting some books to give her some boost during her hols.

I bought

i-Excel model as a tool - Li Fanglan - Fan math
i-Excel process skills level 1,2
- Fan math
level 1 is mostly for p1. but I bought it anyway. Its better to go step by step.

I got these from my fav. school book shop in 21, Ghim moh road. B.vista.
there I bought some of the teacher's production work sheets.

where do you buy these past paers?
