too many errors Apr 22, 2007
This book has a disturbing number of errors in its calculations. They may be simple typos (negative signs omitted, etc.) but they can be very confusing for someone trying to validate his/her understanding. The authors do a pretty good job of outlining and presenting the basic concepts of algebra, but skip over some important fundamentals, such as derivation of the quadratic formula.
great review of algebra Jan 5, 2006
I havent had algebra in over 30 years and am getting certified to teach high school math. This book takes you through the review in a very thoughtful sequence. I did all the exercises in this book in just one week, completely refreshing my knowledge. HOWEVER, I was very frustrated by numerous mistakes in the solution sets. I wasted much time trying to figure out how they could have gotten their answer only to discover they were wrong (typically a typo). This book would not be good for people who are learning algebra for the first time, or did not really understand it the first time around. But it is VERY GOOD for refreshing knowledge buried deep inside your brain.
Good refresher, but stay on the look out for errors Nov 24, 2005
Quick and easy way to refresh yourself on algebra, even college algebra. But watch out errors, I have probably found about 10 or more, alot of them in chapter 7. Other than that its good.
The Best Algebra Review Around May 7, 2005
I returned to school after 7 years to attempt a Masters Degree. I needed to take Calculus and I didn't want to start over at Math. I tried a lot of books on Precalculus and Algebra to get up-to-date before moving to Calculus study guides. This one was the best out of all of them. I ended up using it throughout the Calculus class each time I needed to review key algebraic concepts.
Algebra Review May 26, 2001
I had to take the GMAT in order to get into business school. Although I had a good foundation in Algebra, I hadn't used or studied it in over 20 years. I had to re-learn Algebra and practice those horrid word problems. "Quick Algebra Review" was fantastic. I was amazed at how much I had forgotten and at how fast it came back. It wasn't easy though; I put in some long study hours and it paid off. If you have to re-learn algebra, then this is the book for you.
