    A must have to score high on the TABE exam!

    I have been out of school for over 15 years but I am finally going back. This book helped me review everything I needed to get a high score on the Tabe assessment exam. It is user-friendly and very well written. If you need to brush up on math, reading & spelling skills, this is the book for you. I highly recommend it.
