    Math Made Easy!

    Bob Miller takes very difficult concepts and makes them extremely easy to grasp. It is the one math book that will not make you tear your hair out of your head! The author uses a bit of humor and emotion to make math understandable to the average layman. The books are meant to be a supplement to whatever math text you are using. After Bob explains the concepts you will breeze through your textbook's examples. A great book at a great price!

    Good book-Lacks examples

    This book is very helpful. I have been away from Algebra for many years and picked it up again easily with this book. Needs more examples/exercises.

    great read of a boring subject

    OK, you arent going to find a lot of exercises here. But you will find many many examples of almost all algebraic equations. For the first time algebra is making sense to me! Bob may have a few grammatical errors in his book, but the book is clear and straightforward no esoteric mumbo jumbo like they teach in college. All in all a great read!!

    It helped me prepare

    I enjoyed this step by step through algebra book. It helped me freshen up my skills for going back to school after years off. Didn't care about the grammarical errors as long as the mathematical steps were correct that is all I cared about. I plan on getting his calculus and geometry books too!
