About the authors

Chris Tyreman, BN, is an NHS staff nurse in North Wales. He has taught numeracy to adults via distance learning and evening classes. He is also the author of How to Master the BMAT, How to Master the IELTS and co-author of the best-selling How to Master the UKCAT, all published by Kogan Page.

I found the simple explanations and examples easy to follow and was able to quickly refresh my memory and hone my skills in key areas of calculation. The chapter progression is logical and the examples clear and easy to follow. I would recommend this text as appropriate for all nurses, regardless of experience, and particularly as a refresher for those embarking on degree modules such as Independent Prescribing where numeracy skills are an essential element of the course.
