    Basic math not just for Dummies

    I bought this book for my niece. She failed math four times before passing with a D. In an attempt to bring up her GPA in college she is retaking basic math one more time. My niece is smart, but for some reason she has a problem with math. She has been studing the work book this summer so that she can pass math this fall with better than a D. I have watched her confidence grow with each problem she gets right.

    If you are one of those people who have problems with math or know someone who does buy this book. It will save miles of tears and GPAs
