Format: Paperback
This is a GREAT book for studying and reviewing algebra 2, but if you have not taken algebra, or if you took algebra and couldnt grasp most topics without going back to your textbooks to remember something, then you may want to get algebra for dummies to review, this book begins with a slight amount of review from algebra 1, but it will definetly not each you all of algebra 1 topics. I bought this book to study algebra 2 during the summer so I wont have to worry so much next year and ive learned alot from this book, great for dummies book I recomend it completely.

32 of 37 people found the following review helpful By Jim Andrews on November 24, 2008
Format: Paperback
Obviously Ms. Sterling is very comfortable with her subject. But I found this book too wordy and only appropriate for stronger students (who usually don't need the help to begin with). There are hardly any visuals (except for graphs which don't really count) and there are no graphic organizers or other learning tools. There are simply more fun ways to teach some of this material (e.g. "See four terms? Think factor by grouping!") (This is probably being too picky, but the subscripts used to show reduced terms were so small as to be almost unreadable.)

I also thought the author was unnecessarily gloomy and lacking in enthusiasm. For example, finding extraneous roots and then realizing that they are extraneous is part of the student's job and is not a waste of time as I felt the author was implying.

Sorry, I am still looking for a solid Algebra 2 help book to recommend to my students.

Being over 50 years old, I have a hard time remembering my high school algebra. As my children are now going through high school themselves, I definately needed a brush-up on my grasp of algebra to help them.

This book is an excellent review test that will prepare one for most advanced algebra topics. I am working my way through it and have found it to be valuable in relearning advanced algebra. As other reviewers have commented, you must have a solid foundation in basic algebra for this book to be of value. Without that foundation, this book will bring confusion, not clarity.

I am using the book to tutor a couple of kids and it is working out great. It gives me an easy way to help them learn these concepts. I recommend it for any one who needs to review their skills or is having trouble learning these concepts.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Powers on December 5, 2011
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I recommend buying Algebra II For Dummies in the paperback edition and avoiding the Kindle Edition. In the Kindle Edition some of the figures are incomplete which can make an explaination nearly worthless for that lesson. For example, figure 15-4 on page 280 and figure 15-5 on page 289 are only partially shown. The subject is matrices and the illustrations are, for me, essential. On the assumption that the figures in the paperback are complete, I have ordered the paperback and the workbook because the text otherwise is very appealing but unfortunately I will not use my Kindle Edition for fear of encountering incomplete figures.

I had a great time working through Algebra II for Dummies. I would highly recommend using it with the Workbook however. Algebra II Workbook For Dummies (For Dummies (Math & Science)) If you're already enrolled in an Algebra II class, or just need a review, you can get away without the workbook I suppose. However if you're using this text to learn Algebra II on your own, get the workbook also, and you'll find the both of them a complete treatment on the subject, providing the restatement and practice problems necessary to get a handle on the topics.

Yeah I'm guilty of being one of the Dummies out there who read this book and found it's approach to the subject much more informative than any of my high school teachers' lessons. A must read if you've ever had any trouble grasping the "higher maths" go back and read this book and you'll find advancement in math much easier indeed!
