This is one of the best math books on Algebra I I've seen so far. This is an excellent guide for both A students wanting to brush up their math and students who are having a lot of trouble with math. This book will help students establish a strong foundation in math, and it helped me do so.

The explanations in this book are clear, unlike the ones you see in all the other textbooks. It isn't just all examples, there is a lot of textual explanations. I've tried going through various textbooks and study guides, but this one seems to be one of the most helpful.

One complaint I have about this book is that it is not actually thorough enough. There are not a lot of problems for you to work on. This isn't a workbook at all, but a study guide designed to explain math concepts and computational methods. The stuff covered in this book only goes from beginning to intermediate, and doesn't have any advanced stuff. When independently studying math on my own, I usually use the school textbooks if I want to get more work problems, challenge, and enrichment topics.

Like any other book, this book is only a tool. You can't give a good book to a student with poor study skills and expect him to succeed. A good student with a good book brings good results. So if you are teacher who wants to give this to a failing student, the student would probably first need to be motivated and get better study habits before he succeeds with the book. In other words, what I'm saying is that this book isn't magic.

This book has done a really great job helping me ace math tests, but I really think it shouldn't be your only math study guide. Great deal!

I purchased this book as a review book for one of my students (who happens to be in Calculus, interestingly enough). The pre-test is a great diagnostic tool, and the book does cover all the topics in Algebra I that I would expect it to. Highly recommended as a review/practice/study book.

I used this book and others from the series to study for, and pass the MTEL in K-8 Mathematics. The same series worked for the K-8 MTEL for science also.

I bought this book and the Algebra II version to review for a math placement test (I'm going back to school, hooray!), as well as CliffsQuickReview for Geometry. The study solver series is so wonderful because each problem is worked out CLEARLY with explanations along the way. The study solver books were key for me in reviewing 5 years of high school math in about one month.

The only downfall in both the Algebra I and Algebra II books was that there were a few errors. The good side of that though--I knew without a doubt they were typos in exponents or signs simply because the books explained how to work problems (and why they're worked certain ways) so clearly.
