Format: Paperback
This review of geometry is exceptional. It is quick, simple, and easy to use. It provides access to all the common postulates and theorems of geometry. This book is designed to be read straight through as a review. In fact, it does not even have an index. Because of this, I found myself searching through the book hunting for small pieces of information. But through the use of the table of contents, I could find the desired information.

Reading this book is an excellent way to prep for any geometry midterm/final or any standardized test (ACT, PSAT, SAT I, SAT II, etc.). It helped me greatly for the SAT, and in a lot less time than studing a text book or reading SAT prep books. If you need to review geometry in a short amount of time, this is the book to get.

This is a helpful tool for practicing concepts of geometry, and stimulation of memory. However, it may not be helpful if you never had any experience with geometry.

Format: Paperback
As a long-time teacher of mathematics at the college level, I am always trolling for additional/better materials to help students learn mathematics. Since I am not a fan of the Cliffs Notes series, I hesitated before purchasing this book in a used book store. However, once I started looking through it, I realized that it is a very good review of basic geometry.
It begins with the fundamental postulates and immediately goes to some basic theorems, although no proofs are offered. The chapters are:

*) Fundamental ideas
*) Parallel lines
*) Triangles
*) Polygons
*) Perimeter and area
*) Similarity
*) Right triangles
*) Circles
*) Geometric solids
*) Coordinate geometry

There are a small number of exercises at the end of each chapter and a summary exam at the end of the book. Solutions to all exercises are included. If you need a fast, complete review of geometry, then this is an excellent selection. However, it has little value if you are trying to learn geometry.

After several years in a corporate engineering job, I started moonlighting as a math tutor. The Cliff's Quick Review Guides are wonderful to have in my "back pocket" when I need to quickly look something up that is covered in dust in the "archives of my brain."

Overall this isn't bad for a rapid summmary
but there are some subtle errors which may
undermine the reader's confidence in the
material (e.g. note altitudes and areas
of the triangles on page 76).

I am involved with tutoring and haven't looked at geometry for MANY years. I am using Cliff's for review and to supplement more in-depth material. I am finding it great for bringing back the material.

This book is stripped down and to the point, which is exactly what I needed to do a thorough review. I would have rated it a "5" if it had more "Test Yourself" questions...but that's a personal preference (don't let it stop you from ordering this book).

Format: Paperback
CQR Geometry by Ed Kohn, 2001 edition, can be considered a good start for the following student :

# Arithmetic prerequisites : convering fractions to decimals, converting improper fractions to mixed numbers, and taking aquare roots
# Algebra prerequisites : addition of equations, solving linear equations in two variables for one variable in terms of the other, and fctoring quadratic equations.

Great preparation to take standardized college admission tests, and to pursue more advanced mathematics classes such as Trigonometry and Precalculus courses.

Can be covered in 6 weeks for the eager student.
