Your books are fab. I am a visual learner and bought the LC ordinary level Maths book last week for my 17 year old boy. He is very happy that the answers are handwritten rather than typed – much easier to read and follow.
I got your Maths Solutions for honours Maths for my son last year and he found it a brilliant help. He got his ‘A’ thankfully!
The book was a brilliant study aid. It helped me understand some of the mistakes I was making. It was a great resource when going through the Maths past exam papers. I can safely say ACE solutions helped me gain a ‘H1’ in L.C. higher level Maths.
Joe’s solution book came in extremely useful towards the end of 6th year, when much of our focus was on exam papers. The step by step guides using basic vocabulary made it easier to understand the often complex asked questions. We were also able to see how much marks were awarded for each question part and how to break down each question. We found these solution books invaluable as there became less and less time available to look through textbooks for answers.
I found Joe’s Solution book to be helpful and gave a clear step by step process of how to answer the different questions and helped to highlight the skills I needed to help me get a H4 in LC higher level Maths.
I found Joe’s Maths books very helpful when I was studying for the leaving cert. I was struggling with Higher level Maths until I bought Joe’s books and from then on, my grades started to improve. I’m glad to say that his books helped me get the Maths requirement I needed for my course Business Analytics in DIT.
Thanks Joe; my daughter Kelly finds your book brilliant & was delighted when I came home from work yesterday with this printed out for her. She said there are codes that you can enter on sites which will give you answers but not in as much detail or step by step like you do. She brought it up to her room straight away and worked on it.
I used Joe’s Maths Exam Papers Solutions Books for both my Junior Cert and Leaving Cert. They were an unbelievable help to me as everything is perfectly explained so simply! I found that in Maths text books everything was dragged out and made way more confusing but with these books I could always figure out the methods quickly. These books really got me through both the Junior and leaving with as little stress as possible! A brilliant way to learn in my opinion. I’m now in my second year doing general nursing in DCU and loving it! Joe was a great help in getting me to where I am now. Thank you. Amy.
As a student, I loved maths but as a parent I’d been hearing so much about this dreaded new “Project Maths” that when my daughter started secondary school I thought my long forgotten knowledge would be of no use to her. Then I found Joe’s solution book. It’s a simple idea (always the best) – provide the answers to the questions – but for me it was everything I needed to help my daughter i.e. step by step solutions to all the past papers. Using this book along with a blank set of papers ,we are taking it topic by topic to figure out where she’s struggling and then working through each question until she feels confident. The solutions are so detailed that I find it very easy to follow and explain. I would highly recommend this book to all students and parents.
When you’re stuck on a maths question over the weekend, rather than having to wait for the teacher to explain it, you can see how it’s done in Joe’s book. The book was really helpful. It helped me not to panic – sometimes I’d see a question and think “oh my God” but then when you read the explanation and the solution it makes you realise it’s actually easier than you think. I love how neat it was too! It really helped me in the run up to the exams in particular when I had all the information, but just wasn’t sure how it apply it to the questions. I was delighted to get an A in Maths.
Totally agree with Gavin Duffy. My daughter used your book for her Junior Cert two years ago and found it of great benefit. Just ordered a set for Leaving Cert. Looking forward to receiving them. Keep up the great work Joe.
I had the pleasure of helping Joe with this recent publication “How to ACE the Leaving Certificate” for ALL subjects and can promise you the hundreds of hours of research, hard work and care Joe has put into it. If you know someone doing their LC – this is the book for them
Joe, I have just finished reading your book “How to ACE the Leaving Certificate” for ALL subjects. I think it is brilliantly researched and you combine this very well with your wide experience in the fields of teaching and learning. The book presents lots of valuable tips, approaches and advice for students and parents – on an extensive range of scenarios relating to study and exams-which can be at all levels including PLC and third level. Congratulations on your effort and on getting it published! Very readable and practical. Will definitely recommend it. Good luck with your endeavours!
Joe, thanks for much for producing the JC Higher Level past Maths papers all in one place. I found the solutions really easy to read and understand. There were a couple of parts of the course I needed to brush up on and now I have them all sorted. They are a brilliant study aid.
Thank you for your lovely and informative e-mail and the prompt delivery of your fantastic books!
My son Max is a 5th year student in Ratoath College and is determined to keep up his Higher level Maths as he really wants those extra points for college, however he does find it a struggle. He was delighted with your books and e-mails. I too am looking forward to reading my chapters from you ACE text book over the weekend too.
My eldest son is in his second year of his engineering degree and he said that he wishes he had your book when he was doing his Leaving Cert – its exactly whats needed, to learn by example (his words). He said ‘then you start to see patterns developing’.
I have already distributed your business cards to my friends and neighbours in the same boat as ourselves and have highly recommended your books to them.
Thank you again,
