I really like this book. I'm taking some prep math courses in college. I've never taken an algebra course before. I never had to take it in high school. I tried to take a college algebra course a few semesters ago, but I needed to drop it, because I didn't understand any of it.

This book is used in my prep courses at college and has taken me from the very basics, and shows me in a very easy way, how to understand what is going on. For the first time, I'm not only able to do math, but I'm getting an A in my college algebra class. I've received 100% on every assignment that has been handed out, and we are over half way through the class.

I'm so excited, because like a lot of people, math has always been a horrible topic for me. Now I'm really enjoying it. I've now signed up to take several math classes over the next 10 months.

This book it awesome!

This book stunk. I had to rent it for my College Algebra course. There are so many workbooks out there that will be of much better help learning Algebra. Also, I guess you could purchase the workbook that goes along with it but only has answers to even or odd questions. Why are textbooks always such a ripoff.

I needed this book for Algebra I, and I borrowed it from a friend. But I thought that the book was so well written and had so many well-explained nuggets of useful information that when it came time for Algebra II, I just bought the book myself. This will be a useful text to keep on the shelf.

I am not sure why my college chooses to use this textbook, it is not very helpful. I ended up using google for more help than I did this textbook. Why make a student pay an arm and a leg and then make them use this textbook... I really like my math text for this coming semester which appears to be written for humans where-as Beginning Algebra by Aufmann must have been written for aliens.

More About the Author

We are neighbors and friends. We are spouses and parents. We are grandparents and teachers. We have taught in high schools and colleges. It is these experiences that brought us to writing math texts.

We wrote these texts with the same goal we have as teachers - to help you succeed. Our texts are written in an interactive style that encourages you to work along with explanations and examples as you go through the text.
Completely worked examples are models you can use to practice solving other problems. It is through this practice that you will improve your math skills.

Some of you may find math difficult. Some people, even very smart people, find math difficult. It is true that there are difficult ideas and concepts in math. They can be quite challenging to learn. Nonetheless, most of us can learn and understand the concepts in the math courses that are required for your college degree. If you want math to be less difficult, practice.
When you have finished practicing, practice some more. Do not let math be a barrier to you working in your desired field.

Please visit our website at www.cengage.com/community/aufmannpaperbacks for additional information about our textbooks.

We wish you every success.

Joanne Lockwood and Richard Aufmann
