The Best Algebra Textbook I have Had!!! May 30, 2008
I studied Baldor's algebra when I was in 7th grade in Latin America. When I moved to NYC at the age of 17, I was so well prepared that the math that I was taught in my host country (USA) has been too easy. The person who said that this book sucks, has been misled by the fact that most Latin students who come to the USA are from places where they have lacked a good education (countryside). I know this because I am a math teacher here in USA. However, there is a large population of students in the metropolis of Latin America who are well prepared in math. Perhaps, he/she should take a trip to any of those cities, and verify it before arriving to wrong conclusions. Overall, this book teaches the real algebra, the way it should be.

Es el mejor libro para afianzar las herramientas del algebra escolar. Realmente una maravilla, para los jovenes de la secundaria en España.
Algebra de Aurelio Baldor Nov 25, 2007
El libro es excelente, didactico y practico. Nos ayudo mucho con nuestra hija de 13 anos.
Excellent. Jul 23, 2007
Dr. Baldor's "Algebra" and "Arithmetics" are an excellent reference for those young students interested in having strong basic math skills. Honestly, if it wasn't for these books, I wouldn't have succeeded in engineering school.
One of the most interesting things about Dr. Baldor's books is that the first editions were published more than fifty years ago. My father, who is also an engineer, used Dr. Baldor's books during high school and regards them as one of the best books he ever used during his schooling years.
P.S.: The short biographies at the beginning of every chapter in "Algebra" were always fun!
The best! Mar 8, 2007
This the best algebra book that I've seen. Both my wife and I used it when we were in high school years ago, and now we're using it to complement the teachings in our kids schools. My children understand the concepts of algebra much better from this book than from their school textbook.
The limitation is that it's written in Spanish, so you have to be able to read basic Spanish to get the most of it. Being a math book, it doesn't require advanced reading, since algebra is based in lots of symbols.
