 Typos Galore  not for the faint of heart Sep 13, 2009 
I picked this title up to brush up my prealgebra skills for a college placement test and it went really fast but I gave it a low rating because the typos in this book are incredible  I can't believe an average level proof reader didn't catch the mistakes in the answers  if I were more faint of heart, I would be totally confused. The mistakes are needless  answer 9 instead of 19, n being referenced in an equation that only involved x, just silly stuff. I would not recommend this if your math skills are not pretty fresh or your confidence level strong enough so that you know the answer you got is right and the answer key has a typo almost every other page. All in all, even with those misgivings, I was pretty impressed that my review went that quickly  knocked off the book in about 5 days of casual test reviews while watching tv. Much credit must be given to the author's simplicity of teaching methodology  putting a simple rule out there, show how it works, then ask the reader to work on several (average 17) problems on that rule. THen check yourself on the answer key and move on. The last time I did math was 40 years ago but it came back lickity split. Though I still have no clue why we needed to know all that stuff but I guess I didnt' go into a science profession but my husband who did, feels the same way. But like a good Jeopardy program, this book can be taken lightly for a quick refresher, warts and all, just to test yourself and get some understanding of where you are on prealgebra. It doesn't hurt to stay one step ahead of my kid to keep him impressed. And its never too late to go back to college to pursue an indemand as opposed to esoteric profession of starry eyed youth. Money pays the bills and boring but practical, in demand careers should never be underestimated.    Refining Math Skills Aug 25, 2009 
This book is a great help. I used it during the summer months for my son to do some reviews and also to prepare him for the next level for his future math class. This book provided both. It provides an explanation for each topic along with examples that make it quite simply;in addition, it provides an answer sheet to allow one to verify their answers. I know that this book has provided a basis for my son to take on some of the challenges for his new year in 7th grade math. I highly recommend this book for anyone trying to improve in their algebra math skills    Now I get it! Jun 4, 2009 
You know what it's like when someone is giving you directions to a destination and you're just not gettin' it? Then suddenly, something in what they say or how they say it makes it click? You get it! The chorus sings and the sun rises on your horizon. Apply this scenario to teaching and learning from Richard W. Fisher's Mastering Essential Math Skills: PreAlgebra Concepts. Such is the experience my son and I have had as we've made our way through this 72page math workbook. We get it! Concisely explained lessons, only 10 problems to work, plus 6 review problemsto retain what we've learnedand one word problem, are only a few of the compelling reasons I recommend Mastering Essential Math Skills. We spent 6 months trekking through a popular PreAlgebra book yet we didn't learn as much, as quickly, or easily as in just 2 months of using Mastering Essential Math Skills. My son actually looks forward to his math lessons now (this is nothing short of miraculous). I purchased the very affordable DVD set and my 13yearold son is absolutely drawn to Mr. Fisher's friendly, easygoing, and encouraging manner. "20 minutes a day to success" is a subtitle on the cover; it's not just an eyecatching phrase...okay it is...but for those of us beleaguered by paying $100 or more for 300 page math texts consisting of 50+ problems to workit's a welcome fact. 72 pages in allthat's it. When a teacher presents concepts as effectively as Richard Fisher doesthat's all you need.    Excellent Math Concepts Book Mar 1, 2009 
This book is great! It covers all of the basic concepts of math! It has helped me a great deal.    Excellent preparation for Algebra I Apr 23, 2008 
I reviewed all six of the new Mastering Essential Math Skills titles at the 2008 NCTM conference. As a math consultant, I was impressed by all of them. This particular title addresses a very important need. So many students enter their first algebra class with huge gaps in their foundational skills. This book does an excellent job of introducing the prealgebra skills which are essential to success in algebra. Just like Fisher's original books, each lesson contains review, new material, with instruction, and problem solving. After having gone through this book, students will have the necessary skills to be successful in algebra and beyond. Excellent also for students who are struggling in their prealgebra or algebra class. Highly recommended. An excellent summer refresher.
