    Pre Algebra

    The book was not for myself. I was told by the user that the book was of a high degree of assistance. As a matter of fact it did increase test scores.

    Great Review

    Deciding to change careers and go back to school for an engineering degree. Its been 20 years since I last thought about this stuff. I thought it best to go back as far as I could on the mathematics. This book was an excellent starting point. I agree that there isn't a lot of explanation, but simple facts and examples are all that is needed. Like I said, it has been over 20 years for me, but I no problem following along. I hope the rest of the series is this good.
