Reviews - What do customers think about Quick Arithmetic: A Self-Teaching Guide (Wiley Self-Teaching Guides)?

A great math refresher course  Jan 6, 2007
I found myself floundering while trying to help with Algebra ll homework. It's a great reference for all the little things you've forgotten or maybe never known. Well organized and easy to navigate.
 
A bad start  Aug 31, 2006
This book looks decent on the whole, but it gets off to an annoyingly bad start. The way it is structured is that your ability to answer or not answer questions guides you to different sections within the book. The first chapter starts off with a preview quiz, to get you started on your path. Yet the very first question on the quiz has the wrong answer. So when you check your results and think you got it wrong - try it again. The answer given is off by 20. This would be unbelievable in a self teaching guide if I didn't have it right in front of me. I can understand a mistake here and there, but the very first question??!! And, of course, no way to contact the authors to see if they have released accurate answers or let them know. Now the entire book is suspect. There is also some confusion shortly after as the authors draw a clear distinction between a digit as a representation of an idea, then give a question using characters (which are the same, representations of sounds) but ignore the difference between the idea and the glyph. My favorite part so far: "The number three is the idea that describes any collection of three objects." What an incredible waste of ink.
I know this sounds harsh, and I am very disappointed in a few things I ran into right up front, but overall it does indeed look to be a good book. Better than the others I looked at, and it seems well organized and well written (if poorly edited). I do suggest that if you get an answer wrong and think maybe you had it right, you should check yourself with a calculator, the book may be wrong. So I do recommend it, but you have to beware the beginning!
