Our Study Guides are Developed for
The pressure of high school exams can be scary, and sometimes all that work can seem downright impossible. We understand. That’s precisely why we created The Answer Series - To light the way and allow you to prepare fully to get the grade you want.
Our study guides are both a teacher and a learning companion. For almost 50 years, we’ve been successfully breaking down dense, imposing course material with simple tasks, and guiding learners like you along every step of the way.
Whether you’re preparing for your Matric exams or trying to get ahead in Grade 8, The Answer Series has good news for you: With us by your side, you’re going to be just fine.HEAR FROM OTHER LEARNERS
Our study guides are created by teachers just like you, people who know all about the ever increasing demands of this job. We know it’s about much more than just teaching great lessons. It’s working long into the evenings, planning, grading, writing feedback, worrying about learners, and talking to parents.
Since the very beginning, our mission has been to help improve the standard of education in South Africa, that’s why we became teachers, and that’s why we created The Answer Series. If we can save you some time and ease some of your worries along the way too, then all the better.
These study guides are a proven learning companion, they’ve been helping both learners and teachers since 1975. They simplify and present complex course content in a logical, learner friendly way, just as a teacher does.
They’re adaptable too. You can use them in class as your main textbook, or you can invite your learners to use them to supplement their own individual studies. For the learner, they’re a study companion, but for you they’re a teaching companion.HEAR FROM OTHER TEACHERS
Maths teacher Anne Eadie created The Answer Series when she first became a full time mother. Even though she would no longer work in the classroom, she promised to keep improving the lives of young learners.
High school learners and their parents in turn are under incredible pressure to perform in school. Some of you even feel that you must become subject experts in order to support your child’s learning!
The Answer Series creates study guides that remove this strain. Being a family run company, we’ve had to guide our own children through tough exams. With the help of our books, you can guide yours too.
To do this, we present course material in logical, manageable portions, gradually enabling the learner to master the most challenging work. Our study guides simplify the complex, allowing your children to approach their exams without fear.HEAR FROM OTHER PARENTS
I went from getting no A’s to getting straight A’s thanks to The Answer Series.
My task as a teacher preparing learners for the public examinations has been a relatively easy one due to the invaluable use of The Answer series books.
Good things stay forever – I bought the answer series back in 1988 and I did so well in matric. I lost touch with you for about 20 years until now when I am searching for study guides for grade 10 for my daughter. I remembered the name and searched for it on Google, to my surprise I found your page. I will recommend The Answer series to my friends at my daughter’s school.
TAS Mission since 1975
How can we best contribute to raising the standard of education in South Africa? This has been our guiding star since the beginning, in 1975.
TAS boosts NPOs
There are outstanding organisations in South Africa dedicated to helping our learners boost their education and results.
Supporting them is our highest priority social investment. Last year we gave 3000 books away at crash-boom discounts to these tremendous organisations.

I have been through many study guides, but The Answer Series outwits them all! Outstanding explanations, examples and exercises! Thank you!

You really have made the books user friendly for pupils and most comprehensive, not only for pupils to use for revision, but even for teachers to pick up good methods.
Learner - Grade 12
My Maths teacher recommended The Answer Series to me. I also purchased the Life Sciences book, and they both helped me greatly, and definitely increased my marks. I recommend The Answer Series to all my friends.
