I am an English teacher, who was given a math class to teach. I learned about this assignment the night before!! This book was a life saver. My family members also use it for reference. It greatly informs the professional and amateur alike!!

I honestly do not know what I would do without this book. This book has been a real life saver when helping my kids with their homework. I have been able to find everything quickly and easily. This is a must for any working parent who is tired, and needs a quick refresher before helping your kids with homework. When I get home from work and am cooking dinner and the last thing I want or need is to have to dig through a bunch of text, or obsure references, relearning intergers, fractions, decimals, etc. If Math was never your strong suit, you definately need this book. I wish this book was around when I was in Middle School. I understand that there is also and Alegrba On Call book, which I have been unable to find. When I find it, I will buy it sight unseen.

This book is excellent for everybody! Its great for young middle-high school students to have forever! Its a great reference for children and adults alike! No matter what you're looking for that you forgot or can't remember the rule, you can flip right to this book! That's how clear it is!
