bought both your revision packs in December 2014 and I took my Numeracy test today and passed first time!
I found your packs so so helpful, as all the information I needed was in them, and I was able I work through them in a logical manner without feeling overwhelmed.
The techniques for mental maths were especially helpful, as that is something I have struggled with in the past.
