4.0 out of 5 stars Good Algebra II/Trig High School Math Book. October 15, 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A pretty decent math book, but I only bought it because my school uses it and I wanted an extra copy to keep at home so I didn't have to lug it back and forth w/ 8,000 other books a day. But it is lightweight, thanks to its lack of unnecessary graphics, and according to my math teachers, it's packed with problems, including extra practice. It has a good amount of examples.It also has a few random biographies of mathematicians and scientists that are interesting, but mostly pointless, and have little correlations to the sections. There are also small sections about math careers. Additionally, there are computer exercises for students with programming experience. Answers to odd problems are in the back, which is a major plus. ~A. Brown

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book-no need for a teacher! September 11, 2010
I used this textbook last year for my Algebra II class. I personally loved this book. It had very good, worked-examples in each section that were exactly the same as the practice problems given. Most textbooks start out with some information explaining what is going on, and then the student is just supposed to put the pieces together on how to do the problems, whereas the examples in this book show the student exactly how to do the problems. My algebra teacher was not very good, and while she did work out examples on the board for the class, they just never made sense. By the end of the year, I stopped even listening to her lessons and I just did the problems in the book on my own. I made an A in the class, and even though math is one of my weaker subjects, I think I learned enuogh to do fine on the SAT and ACT.

However, my teacher disliked this book. She said that it really needed to include more graphing, and that it was outdated.

To each his own, I guess. I definitely think that its many clearly layed out examples helped me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Algebra Book - Very Detailed July 20, 2010
By J. Gouw
My high school used to use this book for our Adv. Algebra II class, but now the entire school has switched to this book.

Having use this book, it covered lots of materials including some material from Trigonometry too.
I currently also use this book for students I tutor. The problems in the book are very detailed and most of the "challenge" problems are good too. As with most textbooks, this one only shows odd answers too in the back.

This book provides enough problems to grasp the math concepts. It teaches enough material for SAT I, but for SAT Math Level II, you need to buy a pre-calculus book. As for ACT math, this book encompasses all the concepts.

The only complain I have is that there is one section about sequences and series, and at the end of that chapter, the binomial theorem is just thrown in. It just seems more suitable to place that theorem in the polynomial section.

I highly recommend this book for students wanting to learn Algebra II.

5.0 out of 5 stars math teacher review August 21, 2006
As a High School Algebra 2 Teacher, this is a wonderful book that covers all the national math standards. It isn't filled with pictures and fluff, making it a no-nonsense book that can be either basic (set A problems) or more challening (set B and C problems). It's examples are straight-forward showing all steps so readers can understand how to get from one step to another.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALG2H Student December 19, 2012
By D. Eem
The book may be long and contain useless problems, such as the oral exercises. But the content is rich in resources and problems are challenging enough to entice your brain. I think its great for learning algebra and a bit of trigonometry. Everyone should adopt this book as the school curriculum.
