Great book for students in the eighth grade and above! Very helpful to students, especially in light of the new educational standards. Will help a student succeed. Readible and not boring.

A unique approach to helping students deal with those pesky word problems in mathematics. Recommended to students, parents who want to help their children understand (and they will too), teachers who seek to make their math instruction more intelligible, and principals who want to raise their school's math scores.
