I am not sure how many students other this when the original add showed and said a hardcover book and got a loose leaf for a 3 hole binder.. I gave it 1 star since I was not able just to enter a review without giving it a star.. Amazon need to change that
I loathe algebra and am terrible at it but this book really held my hand and showed me sensible approaches and I was able to pass a really massive test thanks to it. Each chapter covers one type of algebra problem, and is broken down into sub-chapters; each sub-chapter tackles on aspect of the equation, and ramps slowly up in difficulty. There are checkpoint questions to make sure you're following along with each tiny step of algebra evolution, and the back of the book has answers (although doesn't show the work).
The author helps give the topic real-world applicability by starting each chapter with a real-life situation that involves algebra to solve the problem, then at the end of the chapter, provides the equation and asks us to solve the problem. I think that was a nice touch to help make sense of how we might use algebra in our lives.
I definitely see why this author is so popular for mastering this topic. I highly recommend it for anything who finds algebra...
I bought this book for self teaching purposes. Since college is a bit too expensive for me and I don't want to take any classes that I dont need (I intend on finishing the book cover to cover and taking a placement test to place past requirements.That way I have less math classes to take). This book is very well detailed and I find it easy enoupgh to follow without needing a teacher to show me. I reccommend this for anyone self teaching.
