Editorial Reviews

Kern County Family Magazine
The Algebra Survival Guide is fun to handle and stunning to read. It is a friendly book that de-mystifies algebra, and - believe it or not - even makes it fun.
Crusader News
A perfect tool for those who are lost in 'Algebra Land'. I would recommend the Survival Guide not just for your children who are studying algebra, but also for those parents who will be teaching it shortly.
Mathematics Teacher
The Algebra Survival Guide is a non-threatening algebra tutorial guide. The question and answer format is great!
