As exam boards abandon the archaic practice of handing out printed statistical tables, the Casio fx-991EX Classwiz has become the baseline calculator for students who are too mean or too poor to invest in a good graphics display calculator.However, for the price, this is a truly excellent calculator that offers a multitude of features. But, to get the best out of it, you need to learn how to use it effectively. It's very unlikely that your school will teach you how to do this, which is why this book has been written. With over 400 screen shots, and all the accompanying keystrokes, you won't be left guessing how to do something. Because, learning how to use this calculator well will definitely improve your exam grades.

The Casio fx-991ES PLUS is a very widely used scientific calculator, and it's not hard to see why. For a very low price it delivers exceptional functionality. In fact, in this price range, you would either have to be unaware of its capabilities, or exceedingly stupid, to use anything else. In most cases it's almost certainly the former, because most students who do own this calculator have no idea of most of the features that it offers them: features that might help them get a better exam grade. This book aims to remedy that situation. With over 250 screen shots, accompanied by all the key strokes, you won't be left guessing how to do something. If you read this book, and try out the examples, you will come away with a thorough understanding of how to get the best out of this very powerful calculator.

Are you the parent of a child attending a UK school, or perhaps an international one infested with UK teachers? Maybe you are considering a teaching career in one of these schools. If so this is a book you might want to read. We all went to school, and so probably feel we have a good idea of what makes them tick. Some of what I've got to say about how they function might surprise or even alarm you. A fair proportion of what I've written could apply to schools in many countries (I have taught in several), but certain aspects are peculiar, or at least more common to the UK: how teachers are recruited, for instance. As mentioned in the book's introduction, I've seen what goes on in quite a few schools (more than a lot of teachers), and been told a great deal by colleagues and the numerous students I've tutored privately. However, some of the material in the book, for example, the recruitment process, could be discovered by anyone prepared to do the research. In the UK the schools and government conspire to keep parents and outsiders in the dark. The prime example of this is OFSTED, which for many years has given every school advance notice of its inspections. Can you imagine a health and safety inspector (unless bribed) working in this manner? As expected, this book has generated a fair bit of odium from those with vested interests in keeping things just as they are. There are several poor "reviews" by people who have clearly never read the book, desperately trying to dissuade others from doing so. But, there are also reviews by genuine readers confirming the accuracy of its content. Many parents, or prospective teachers, may not want their comfortable illusions about the school system shattered, but the rest should read this book and make up their own minds.

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! The twisty new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door and A Stranger in the House A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway . . . but when the storm hits, no one is getting away It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. It boasts spacious old rooms with huge woodburning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery. So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in and try to make the best of it. Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead--it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic. Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. And there's nothing they can do but hunker down and hope they can survive the storm. . . and one another.
