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.

I went from getting no A’s to getting straight A’s thanks to The Answer Series.


Our Study Guides are Developed for


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.

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.


Our Study Guides are Developed for


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.

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.


Project JIKA

TAS has given over 10,000 books, out of our own pockets, to under-performing schools in South Africa.

For those that embraced the gift, despite their socia-economic challenges, we saw staggering results. E.g. Reuben Ntuli
