    I found this book to be extremely helpful. I have never been very good in the math department and this book has helped me considerably. It is very easy to understand and it makes problems such as (6/2)-(8/9)=? seem very simple.
    The author first gives you a basic outline and then he goes into more detail, with many sample problems. This book explains basic concepts much better than any of my former teachers ever did. I am going back to college and I needed a refresher course, I could not have asked for or found a better book to get the math review I needed. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

    Format: Paperback
    I checked out quite a few books to help me review basic math and algebra concepts, not knowing which ones would click with me and which wouldn't. Of the six hefty workbooks I selected, this one was my favorite. It offers lots of pre-tests, exercises, and follow-up tests with explanatory answers at the back. The first test in the book tests what you already know overall before studying the information inside, and then each answer is listed in an index next to a label of what sort of problem it is, allowing the reader to pinpoint areas where help is needed. The book has some cartoon drawings which some people might find distracting but I liked the light-approach, the actual verbal descriptions are clear and not 'jokey' or distracting like some of the other books were. I found the methods and how they were presented easier to work with than the other books.

    This book helped me get my "math" legs back under me. I feel that it is primarily aimed at those with a prior knowledge and only need a good refresher. It starts out with basic things such as percents and long division, and it ends up touching upon some basic algebra. If you need a good refresher, this book is great.

    A young friend of mine was struggling in math(algebra). I am not the sharpest tack when it comes to math, so I shopped around

    for the best resource I could find, and I came across this little gem. So certain are the authors that your math grades will improve in 30 days, that they offer a full refund if you are not

    satisfied. After tutoring my friend, who was flunking algebra,

    she earned a B on her next report card. I have since used this

    most excellent resource to polish up my own math skills, with great effect. There could probably be more examples, especially

    for the more difficult math problems, but I still highly recommend this book.

    Format: Paperback
    I am horrible in math... this book holds your hand and takes you step by step through whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percentages, algebra, geometry, tables & graphs & probability & statistics. The only areas I think there could be more coverage was the probability. I highly recommend this book.

    Format: Paperback
    I got this book shortly before going back to college because I knew the entrance exam would contain a fair amount of math and I was rusty. The book is very thorough and offers clear explainations of not only the solutions to problems, but also the theory behind those solutions. With the help of this book, I was able to test out of general math, pre-algebra, and basic algebra.

    Format: Paperback
    I had to take a Math Entrance Exam at the college and didn't want to be placed in a remedial Math Course, so I purchased this book along with Painless Algebra. I did not care for the fairy tale story as it explains each reason for an Algebraic equation. They could have done without the Gremlin parts, but I guess they were trying to make it interesting for young readers--Couldn't they have come up with a better opposition to problems that having a gremlin creature? I guess that is my pet peeve.

    The first few chapters were great as far as illustrating step-by-step on how to do each equation, then somewhere they lost me as they begin omitting the step-by-step explainations. I am a visual learner and like to see how they arrived at that answer; otherwise, I am just plain lost. Since my exam was fast approaching, I switched over to Painless Algebra by Barron Series and it was overall great. I got a 91 on the Algebra part, permitting me to take Intermediate Algebra. Had I stuck with this book, what I needed for the graphs, diagrams cos, tan, sin, etc. would have passed the College Algebra Part. THIS BOOK LOST ME ON THE FIRST CHAPTER EXPLAINING THESE GRAPHS, ETC. Again, they omitted a step or two because I can not figure how they arrived at their answers. I did find myself skipping sections because of this. Why some chapters did an excellent job of explaining and why others did not is beyond me.

    Overall, I guess this book is worth buying as there were not too many to choose from and these were the best of the bunch being offered. Better to learn something than nothing.

    I wish I could find Algebra and higher math workbooks like they offer for children. The DK Math Made Easy series is an excellent children's math book. Why can't they make them for Algebra and higher math? They go step by step and repeat, slowly getting harder in each section without you knowing it.

    5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Henry David Thoreau on August 4, 2006
    Format: Paperback
    My only beef: there are several incorrectly computed answers in Math the Easy Way. It also has several typos, though I think these are minor.

    For the student willing to learn by this book, though, you couldn't do better. Highly recommended.
