    Excelleng math book and author

    The layout of this book is excellent. The author must have pu a lot of effort on this book. There is no space wasted in the whole book. It is better than any 800-page math book. There are numerous examples which are easy to read. I followed the right-step examples to do the exercises and checked the answers listed in the book. I faxed my questions to the author for help. The author was very kind to answer my questions for free. As a math student, I started to love algebra since I read this book. I would tell anyone who needs help in algebra to always have this book on hand.
