    Comments about Cambridge First Essential Mathematics for the Australian Curriculum Year 7:

    This textbook was on my children's book list as a year 7 requirement. The book list provided to me, quoted this textbook at a substantially higher price. I had to find something more affordable, since I had two children starting high school (year 7) at the same time. This was a lot cheaper even with the postage on top of it.
    In regards to the text itself, even though its a requirement that each student owns their own copy of the text for this subject, both of my children have told me that they are enjoying maths because they are understanding the text and the content. They find the textbook very easy to follow.
