Reviews - What do customers think about Geometry (Cliffs Quick Review)?
great for reviewing Nov 13, 2007
I am involved with tutoring and haven't looked at geometry for MANY years. I am using Cliff's for review and to supplement more in-depth material. I am finding it great for bringing back the material.
caution Oct 22, 2007
Overall this isn't bad for a rapid summmary but there are some subtle errors which may undermine the reader's confidence in the material (e.g. note altitudes and areas of the triangles on page 76).
A compact, yet complete review of basic geometry Aug 12, 2007
As a long-time teacher of mathematics at the college level, I am always trolling for additional/better materials to help students learn mathematics. Since I am not a fan of the Cliffs Notes series, I hesitated before purchasing this book in a used book store. However, once I started looking through it, I realized that it is a very good review of basic geometry. It begins with the fundamental postulates and immediately goes to some basic theorems, although no proofs are offered. The chapters are:
*) Fundamental ideas *) Parallel lines *) Triangles *) Polygons *) Perimeter and area *) Similarity *) Right triangles *) Circles *) Geometric solids *) Coordinate geometry
There are a small number of exercises at the end of each chapter and a summary exam at the end of the book. Solutions to all exercises are included. If you need a fast, complete review of geometry, then this is an excellent selection. However, it has little value if you are trying to learn geometry.
Very handy little summary Mar 3, 2004
After several years in a corporate engineering job, I started moonlighting as a math tutor. The Cliff's Quick Review Guides are wonderful to have in my "back pocket" when I need to quickly look something up that is covered in dust in the "archives of my brain."
A Good Start for Geometry Review Jan 30, 2002
This is a helpful tool for practicing concepts of geometry, and stimulation of memory. However, it may not be helpful if you never had any experience with geometry.
