Most Helpful Customer Reviews
There are at least three errors in the answers provided through the first five chapters of the workbook. The concept of the book is excellent, but the execution definitely leaves something to be desired.
I purchased this workbook to prepare me for my calculus class after a 6 year break from school. It was very good as a refresher, skimming over all the material covered by a typical algebra II class. I would not recommend this to a student in algebra II struggling with the content. It would be more appropriate as something to do during summer break after passing the class, or during the last part of class to review for the final. I deducted a star because some of the answers in the back are wrong, which can be very frustrating sometimes, but it does make you check your work carefully.
