### Supplements

This book is excellent for explaining basic concepts or helping students who lack confidence.

Having compared it to previous editions, I would say that I prefer their covers, this one is very pink!

The sections of the book (not the workbook) with the background page colour and text colour the same (e.g. dark green text on a light green background) can be difficult for some students to read.
