The text is sparse and explanations dry, but the information is presented in an easy to understand format. This textbook will definitely help you understand Algebra, but you need to be patient enough to study it all the way through.

The text was very dry. Not that it had much of a chance, seeing how it was a math book. Anyways, it gave very vague examples and explanations...over all it wasn't a good choice book for class.
