4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Review or Preparatory Book For Algebra II November 28, 1998
By A Customer
This book really helped me prepare for Algebra II. With the help of this book, I had a 97% in the first semester and a 94% in the second. Then at the end of the year, this was a great tool in reviewing for the final.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but with a few flaws August 2, 2006
A Kid's Review
Overall, this book is great. Everything is pretty clear and it makes algebra II almost easy. However, there are many typos I found, like forgetting a negative, or using a wrong variable. but otherwise, it's awesome!

2.0 out of 5 stars Presentation is too fast for anyone but the lapsed master February 21, 2010
If you were once able to master the principles of algebra II and need a quick refresher, then this book may satisfy your needs. However, if you have never mastered them and need to learn them, then you will find this book woefully inadequate. The coverage is:

*) Linear sentences in one variable
*) Segments, lines and inequalities
*) Linear sentences in two variables
*) Linear equations in three variables
*) Polynomial arithmetic
*) Factoring polynomials
*) Rational expressions
*) Relations and functions
*) Polynomial functions
*) Radicals and complex numbers
*) Quadratics in one variable
*) Conic sections
*) Quadratic systems
*) Exponential and logarithmic functions
*) Sequences and series
*) Additional topics
*) Word problems

All of this is done in 244 pages, so the presentation is very rapid and brief. There are short three to four question quizzes at the end of each chapter and a 29-question test at the end of the book. Brief answers to all questions are included.
In my opinion, this is not enough proficiency testing to allow the reader to adequately test their retention of the material. On the cover the blurb is "The essentials fast . . ." but in my opinion it is too fast to do anyone but the lapsed master any good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Kohn. July 17, 2007
Material is step-by-step based, allowing you to learn in steps and excel in several areas of Algebra(II). [Helped me a ton- allowed me to start from the beginning and work my way up in areas both easy and difficult.]

2.0 out of 5 stars Many typos May 6, 2012
There is at least one typo in every chapter and some chapters have multiple mistakes. The chapter on logarithms even has an example that they forgot to include the answer to and there was a mistake in the chapter on conic sections that made me think I was going crazy. Normally I'd be a little forgiving but COME ON. This is math. Having mistakes in a math book can really mess with people's heads.

I've read bunches of books on mathematics and I still find Cliff Quick Review mathematics series to be one of the most concise and thorough books in the genre! A must read whether you are in school or just looking to brush up on some of the stuff that you never really did grasp in school! I love it!
