REA & Bob Miller Get You Ready to Tackle TABE Level A Math! 
First Edition! 

 

Bob Miller has taught math to thousands of students at all educational levels for 30 years. His proven teaching methods can help students and adult learners tackle the math portion of the TABE and boost their scores!  
 
In Bob Miller’s Math for the TABE Level A, Bob Miller shows students how they should prepare for the math component of the TABE Level A. Unlike some dull test preps that merely present the material, Bob actually teaches and explains math concepts and ideas. His no-nonsense, highly targeted, easy-to-grasp style, and decades of experience as a math teacher help students understand math.  
 
Each chapter is devoted to a specific math topic and is filled with examples and exercises plus explanations of solutions to illustrate the math concepts and reinforce math skills. The easy-to-follow, student-friendly review covers all topics tested on the TABE Level A math portion, including: number operations, integers, decimals and fractions, word problems, geometry, and averages. The book includes four practice tests that mirror the actual exam, allowing students to “practice for real” before test day.
 
REA offers the only independent test preparation for the TABE. Packed with engaging examples, full-length TABE Math practice tests, plus test-taking tips and advice that boost confidence on exam day, this book is a must for anyone preparing for the TABE! 
 
Bob Miller’s Math for the TABE Level A is another great addition to the Bob Miller/REA library. Bob Miller has authored several successful math test preps for REA, including Bob Miller’s Math for the GMAT, Bob Miller’s Math for the GRE General Test, and Bob Miller’s Math for the ACT. 
 
What is the TABE? 
The Test for Adult Basic Education (TABE) is a diagnostic test used to determine a person’s skill levels and aptitudes in reading, English, and math. The TABE is administered across the country and is a good prep for anyone taking the GED. TABE Level A is the highest level available (the equivalent of grades 8-12), and the most popular exam in the TABE battery.

Meet the Author

Bob Miller

Bob Miller — Author, Teacher, and Renowned Mathematician
 
Bob Miller received his B.S. in the Unified Honors Program sponsored by the Ford Foundation and his M.S. in math from Polytechnic University. After the first class he taught (as a substitute for a full-time professor), he overheard one student say to another, “At least we have someone who can teach the stuff.” From that moment on, he was hooked on teaching.
 
Since then, Bob has taught at virtually every educational level, and has brought his math skills to classrooms at C.U.N.Y., Westfield State College, Rutgers, and Poly. Bob says, “I always feel great when students tell me they used to hate math or couldn’t do math and now they like it more and can do it better.”
 
Bob considers teaching to be exceptionally rewarding, and he has broadened his teaching horizons to include math students beyond the classroom. His math test preps are specifically written in a fun and easy-to-follow style that students embrace.
 
Bob says his goal as an author, teacher, and mathematician is to help students understand math so they can get the scores they need to excel on the TABE. With his numerous success stories, best-selling test preps, and over 30 years of experience, Bob has proven that his teaching methods get results!

TO THE STUDENT  

Congratulations to you!!!! You are taking the first step toward getting your GED. Your immediate goal is to get your diploma so you can earn more money for yourself and your family. However, you may find greater rewards in learning things you never thought you could. 
 
You might think you cannot learn math. Wrong! Because of the way math is taught today, almost all students think that they can’t learn math or that they are stupid. I live in a community in which some brilliant students take calculus in high school but they don’t know all of their basic arithmetic or basic algebra. When students come to me, many think it’s their fault they can’t learn. That’s wrong! In fact, I have often said that if I were to take math today, I’m not sure I could learn it, and I really,
really know this stuff !  

Nearly every student, good or not, high level or not, has the same problems. See if this is also you. Students generally know their decimals pretty well, have trouble with fractions, and are really bad with percentages (I have a neat way of showing them to you!). Algebra students usually know how to solve basic equations, but after that, many of the basics are unclear. 
 
This book will change all this. You will learn the skills necessary for this test and why what you learn is true (very important for learning). The book has practice problems to help you improve your skills. The other part you need to know is to how to read a math book. I was never taught this, and I have a Masters degree in math. It is exactly the opposite of reading a book for English, where the goal is to read fairly quickly and still understand the book. The way to read a math book is sl-o-o-o-o-o-o-wly, line by line. When there are examples, you have to write them and go over them until you understand them. 

Some topics will take longer than others to learn. However, your overall speed at learning will get faster as you get further into the book. At the end of the book, you will be so much better than when you started, you won’t believe it! Many of my students have discovered this. 
 
So let’s get going!
Bob Miller
