I found it easy to use. I needed a book that would break down in terms I could understand. I found this one to be exactly what I wanted.

There are two problems with this book: (1) The order of the presentation is unusual, but the clarity of the presentation helps to make up for that. (2) The book has NO PROBLEMS! I've never seen a book explain math concepts without offering some problems for the reader to test his / her new skills. This means that I have to go find another book that provides problems for me to evaluate whether the skills in this book have actually been learned. On the plus side, this book is concise yet clear. I know some complain that it starts at the level of basic arithmetic and its notation, but some students taking algebra need such a refresher before jumping into the meatier topics. THREE STARS for being a clearly written book but not a complete learning experience for algebra.
