Overview

When the numbers just don’t add up…

Following in the footsteps of the successful The Humongous Books of Calculus Problems, bestselling author Michael Kelley has taken a typical algebra workbook, and made notes in the margins, adding missing steps and simplifying concepts and solutions. Students will learn how to interpret and solve problems as they are typically presented in algebra courses—and become prepared to solve those problems that were never discussed in class but always seem to find their way onto exams.

• Annotations throughout the text clarify each problem and fill in missing steps needed to reach the solution, making this book like no other algebra workbook on the market

Yes,it is a humongous book.But at the same time, it makes it easier for you to understand algebra much better.I'm using this book to help me prepare for a exam coming up.

Have you ever been in classes where you felt left behind? That everyone knows something that you don't because they had a teacher who knew their subject and clued you in? Well if you didn't/or don't in math this is the book to get. I am returning to math because at the tender age of learning I had complete morons who taught the subject. This book will set you straight now matter what your age. Have fun in algebra!

I agree with some of the criticism regarding not many practice problems, but the clear way it is presented helps make up for lack of practice problems. His word problem chapter is very thin, not at all inclusive of the many types of word problems, but that might take an entire book by itself. All in all, I like the way he has organized subjects and presented them as clearly as I've ever seen them presented. Well worth the cost.

So I found out I had to retake my placement exam again to get into the math course I wanted for school... I hadn't taken a math course in over 6 years!!! This book was.... wait for it.... PHENOMENAL! It teaches you each lesson with problems, explains the answers in a step by step manner (helpful in catching errors in your own work) and you do a number of problems until BAAM! You understand. I was so nervous and my Algebra II for Dummies book and Workbook were confusing in grasping the subjects! Thank GOD I purchased this one too! If you need to review, re-learn, or get a better understanding of your Algebra... GET THIS BOOK!
