Students can rely on Moise's clear and thorough presentation of basic geometry theorems. The author assumes that students have no previous knowledge of the subject and presents the basics of geometry from the ground up. This comprehensive approach gives instructors flexibility in teaching. For example, an advanced class may progress rapidly through Chapters 1-7 and devote most of its time to the material presented in Chapters 8, 10, 14, 19, and 20. Similarly, a less advanced class may go carefully through Chapters 1-7, and omit some of the more difficult chapters, such as 20 and 24.
