Actually i think sec students dont really hv a lot of time for doing assessmt bks, also syllabus do differ somewhat schools to schools. For Maths, the CASCO's Mathematics Tutor is useful.

For mathematics, I recommend attempting *all* the questions in the textbook first. All the maths textbooks used the in Singapore are not just good, but excellent, and I often wonder why parents rush to buy assessment books, when the textbook questions have not been exhausted yet!

After attempting all the questions, go for the workbook associated with the textbook (all maths textbooks in Singapore actually come with a workbook). This will give the student some practice on the materials already covered in the textbooks.

Third, the pass year questions provided by the teachers should be completed -- this will give an idea of how questions are phrased, etc.

Only then should assessment books come into the picture.


Sincerely,
CKLee
