This little book is not perfect but it is a fair and balance refresher course.
Kindle Customer
Lucid writing style - This book is written in simple English, so it will benefit students who are not the native speakers of English as well.

So many typing mistakes that I just stopped using the book in the middle of it.

Pros:
Tutor in a book - I have taught and tutored high school and college students in various topics such as algebra, calculus, statistics, probability, engineering, etc. for the past seven years. During this time I have come across a variety of books. Many of them are popular among students but in my opinion they are just a collection of solved problems and unsolved exercises. Even the solved problems leave students guessing about intermediate steps. No book in my opinion has so far made a sincere effort to help students develop the concepts of mathematics by guiding them in a step - by - step hands on approach. And this is where this book steps in. It solves the problems in elementary steps and in the process explains the concept very coherently. It is a tutor in a book!

Arsenal of solutions - The authors seem to have done research on various types of problems which generally show up on tests and board exams and they have produced a detailed solution mechanism for each problem type. So, this does help students develop an arsenal of solutions to deal with different kinds of problems he/she might encounter on tests. Let's be honest here, at the high school level there are not infinite types of problems. Hence, to a certain extent Dr. Monroe's book has solved the ubiquitous uncertainty about different popular forms in which problems can show up on the exam.

Variety of topics - Even though this is pretty much standard for all books, I like the organization of this book as far as presenting the topics is concerned. Dr. Monroe has tried to build up the students skills in a highly structured manner.

This book should act as a supplement to your studying. Certain sections are quite thorough, while others only provide quick refreshers. Here is my take on each section:

Essential Math Skills - This is a good, quick introduction to basic math skills, but I don't think that it will be useful for a high school student. Upon entering high school, a student should have mastered such topics as fractions and integers, and if he or she hasn't, then he or she is in trouble.

Algebra I - You are inundated with information in this section, and although the explanations are clear, there are not enough examples.

Algebra II - Dr. Monroe provides plenty of examples, and her step-by-step method of solving them is very clear and helpful. I liked how she details the four ways to solve systems of linear equations.

Geometry - This chapter does not cover geometric proofs, which are fundamental to the subject.

Trigonometry - A section on vectors would have been useful. Also, Dr. Monroe could have provided general instruction on how to use a graphing calculator to graph functions.

Pre-Calculus - I liked the inclusion of word problems, which are sometimes left out in similar study aides. The chapter does lack sections on limits and polar coordinates.

Calculus - This section could have been broadened to include more topics and flesh out certain concepts. It should be used only for a basic review of derivatives and integrals.

Statistics - The section on Probability is very limited, and Probability is an integral part to the study of Statistics.

This book is a summary of topics. Don't buy this book if you are looking for exercises and extend explanations.

It covers a lot, but as I said ... once I got lost in one topic due to the brief explanation ... I was done!

I had to look for other resources to see if I could understand. To me this book is more of a guide for professors and people that already know the topics than for somebody who is trying to learn by themselves.

I'm only into the Exponential Functions section, but I must say, there are a few typos and incorrect formulas that made it necessary to consult online help. On the bright side, I discovered purplemath.com which is an excellent place to correct the mistakes in the book. To be more precise, the formulas for parabolas and ellipses were wrong.
Also, the formula for the quotient rule of exponential equations was wrong...had to look them up. So, although I'm enjoying relearning math after many years out of high school, I must give this caveat: Pay close attention to what's written because, so far, there are some mistakes. Do I recommend this book ? Yes...but watch for the mistakes.

I am a professional who left school a long, long time ago. I have been searching for a while for a good math book to refresh my skills and so far found that when it comes to math, finding a good book is as hard as the subject it self. Most books are cumbersome to use and part of school curricula that unless approached as a whole leave the reader feeling incomplete and uninformed. This little book is not perfect but it is a fair and balance refresher course. I like it.

I wanted to refresh my maths from high school but found this ebook sloppy and badly designed. Examples are perfunctory and unsatisfactory. I gave up half way. Get your act together writers.
