    Very vague to me.

    I have taken Geometry allready, and I just needed somthing to help me grasp concepts again. From the begining of the book, I noticed an ambiguoius referances to concepts, specifically radians. Many other things have caused me trouble also. I would not recomend using this book without touter or someone else who has knowledge in the field, and can explain and reinforce concepts taught in the book.

    Just the facts

    As a person who has always had trouble with math and proofs, I am glad this book just gives the facts without trying to be a course in logic too. I want to know how big a triangle or trapezoid is, and be able to do it easily with calculations. I don't care why it is or isn't congruant to this or that or the other. This book 'cuts to the chase.' It is practical and I didn't have trouble at all. If I can do it, you can too. But if you want to learn how to do proofs and figure out why a widget isn't always a widget, get a different book.
