    The Inside Secret

    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!

    A good Algebra help book.

    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.

    AMAZING ALGEBRA BOOK

    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!
