I got this book recently because I needed a simple small "transition" book to review all the Algebra I had lost from taking Geometry. Well... I really like this book. It is very useful and I hope to be able to easily integrate it with the rest of all my studying materials. I really like how it has such an easy interface and is small. (to fit in small backpack pockets) For these first months of Algebra II, you guys that are too dumb to remember you basic algebra (like me), get this book. It is a great tool for reviewing even the most important sections in Algebra. Thanks Cliff Notes... you allow people to slack at all times of the year. :)

This book is stripped down and to the point. All the information you need to do a thorough review without all the fluff. I would have rated it a "5" if it had more "Test Yourself" questions -- but, that's a personal preference (don't let it stop you from buying the book).

CliffsQuickReview Algebra I by Jerry Bobrow, 2001 edition, presents a clear, concise
review of Algebra I but with some errors which could create confusion and headscratching frustration .

Some errors :

chapter 9, under slope and intercept of linear equations, example 5
it should have been :page 94,find the slope of y = -2x PLUS 1 using coordinates .
Pick two points, such as A(TWO,negative 3)

page 95, under Graphing linear equations using slope and intercept
Locate -2 on the Y-axis ( NOT X-AXIS).

Otherwise, it is a superb introduction to Algebra with the first two chapters devoted to making sure you master the pre-algebra necessary.

It is worth a purchase in spite of these errors.

I picked up this book as a supplement to my cache of teaching materials, hoping to find some great shortcuts I could give to the students. While this is labeled as a "Quick Review," I expected there would be some depth in it -- that's where it falls just a little short.

On the plus side, if you or a student you know needs a really fast reminder of certain principles and formula -- consider adding this to your library.
