Brain-bending Puzzles to Challenge and Entertain
I was first introduced to logic puzzles during my last years of grade school and I've been addicted to them ever since. I bought this book hoping for some fun, challenging puzzles and I have yet to be disappointed. There are approximately 64 puzzles in all which utilize a variety of skills including basic mathematics (e.g. averaging, fraction and decimal conversions, data comparisons and conversions, sorting, etc). Don't be fooled: although a few random puzzles are very simple, many of them are quite complex and require careful thought and lots of critical thinking in addition to the math skills to reach a solution. Take the word of a civil engineer, this book will have your mind bending for hours. I also recommend that you magnify and xerox or recreate the charts that are provided to help you work out the solution (include space for notes). And make sure you use a pencil and a big eraser. Solutions are provided in the back of the book for all problems.
