I am a math teacher and when I saw this book I thought I would try is a resource. The book starts with the basic four operations and works its way up. It starts easy and works its way up. It does not start with 1+1 but is does start with 47+21. It covers a huge arrange of topics. Each chapter starts with what I would almost call a helpful hints page. Covers what you will work on and what to watch out for. This book is not going to teach you how to do this but it is a great practice. This book covers all basic math and pre-algebra. Some of the topics I personally would classify as algebra but that would depend on the curriculum being used. The book as word problems, graphing, statistics. The answers at the back of the book are step by step and also with a small description of what is being done. Again this is useful as a refresher but not as a lesson. Many of the problems are good practice for not using a calculator. The only issue I found annoying is I found finding the answers at the back a pain. They have grouped the answers together in hundreds but finding just one answer can take a minute or two. Make sure you mark you answers for the section you a working on otherwise you maybe flipping pages for a long time. Since the questions are grouped together in sections of around 10 I wish in the little description they had just added question 135-140 answers 177-179.

Overall I think this has a good selection of problems and is a nice supplement to a class. I will probably use this problems as warm ups and bonus questions within my classes. If you have had a summer off and you are about to start algebra this is a great book to work through to refresh those math skills.

This book is good for the initial learning of basic math and pre-algebra. They even review how to add and subtract on a more efficient basis, although it's obvious that it starts much more advanced level than kindergarten and first grade. It's terrific for people like me, who have studied a lot of these items in the past but have gotten rusty on a few of the details.

However, this book I am reviewing is a WORKBOOK and would best be used in tandem with BASIC MATH AND PRE-ALGEBRA FOR DUMMIES. If you have a basic knowledge of basic math and remember a little bit about algebra, this book could be used on its own or perhaps with other books and/or web searches. however, in my observation the FOR DUMMIES book on this subject would probably be the best bet.

Having said that, the answers to the problems are still given with good, solid instructions on how to set up the steps. I can see this workbook being valuable for practice, review, or learning for the first time. I'd strongly recommend it for homeschoolers.

When I was somewhere between about 18-22 years old, someone told me I was "mentally deficient" in math, and it took me only about 20 years to get over it. Math didn't come easy to me, but with helps like this workbook and the book that goes with it, I feel like I am much more competent with math than I was. I doubt that I'll ever become a CPA, but at the same time, I can do much more than I thought I could, and it has become easier for me to write out answers and do more figuring in my head.

I strongly recommend the book.

Recently back in college the one class I fear is math. It's been a long time!
This is helping get back to speed without crushing my brain.
Starting with basic math and moving into pre-algebra is just enough for me. It has on-line access also though being a bit old school at the moment I prefer to just use the book.
This is the kind of text you skim and skip through and it is designed to help you plateau and move on.
I've been attacking a page or two every night.
I can't say I enjoy it but I can says its very helpful.

I am terrible at math. Always been. So, not too long ago I decided to get some books to keep my skills in a somehow working level. I used the Basic Math and pre-algebra book and workbook in the dummies series and i truly enjoyed it.

This book added to the "sharpening." One exercise after another; it's like doing Sudoku, you can't just do one. I found myself going through the pages with great pleasure.

Also, there is an on-line subscription that added value to the book. Whether you want to keep your math skills going or you are helping someone, this book is a great tool.

This book is great if you need to practice math skills, however it is not a teaching book. It does have Tips (very handy!), which give you clues as to what you need to do to figure out the math problems given, but doesn't go in depth to explain the math concepts involved. It comes with a CD that you can use in the website for additional practice/review of your skills. The problems go from easy to challenging and you really have to pay attention to what you are doing or you'll hit a wall. This book is not a substitute for an actual math course but it is a great practicing tool.

From working with negative numbers to geometry, fractions and weights and measures, "Basic Math & Pre-Algebra for Dummies" has it covered. There are 1,001 problems (and answers) for students to practice their skills. It also provides a code to find 1,001 practice questions online. The best part of the book is the answer section that shows how to solve the problems. Great for students of all ages.
