I bought this book because my job search requires me to take civil service exams again and again for various jobs. The exams are full of mathematics (even if the job has nothing to do with that subject). I needed a math refresher course in the worst way when I realized that I'd forgotten my long division and multiplication, the more difficult stretches of the multiplication table, percentages, and anything to do with fractions. This book teaches you these things (and much more) in a very nice, courteous, non-intimidating, non-condescending manner. I really appreciate it. I don't want to become a mathematician. I just want to recall enough to get by. Thank goodness this book helps you do that. I definitely recommend it. I bought it together with a similar refresher math book and found out that this one is the only one you really need.

I needed to pass a math portion of a job placement test, and had not been to school in 20 years! I took this book and in one week learned all the math needed to pass the test. Very easy to understand, and you can go at your own pace. Funny too!

This book can be used by anyone. If we had been taught to do math like this in school we would have all done a little bit better!!! This book broke everything down so anyone could understand the simple approach to mathamatics. It taught me things that I had forgotten and also helped me with things that I was never taught in school. I have never read a book like this.

I was sold when I read other review's. When I read the book I was still amazed at the simple detail that Steve Slavin provided throughout the entire book. We thank you for our NEW knowledge on math!!!!

This book is for anyone who needs to brush up on their math skills and for anyone with dyscalculia or math disabilities. This book is a great review of "life math"--including how to calculate how much social security the government deducts from your paycheck and how to calculate tips and sales percentages. Full chapters are devoted to personal finances, rate & time problems (like figuring gas mileage), and interest rates. Not too scary for math phobics and definitely useful.

Format: Paperback
...and there are certainly not enough excercises in the book to make sure all that knowledge will stick. I was very dissappointed by this book. I expected it to be much better; I've been out of high school for 15 years and was never any good at math to begin with but now I need to go to college so I had to start from rock bottom and work my way up. Initially I hardly used this book, because most of the time I did, I just got fustrated with it. The beginning (addition, subtraction, ect) is all right, that is why I gave 2 stars instead of 1 but that's about it. I think this book will suit people who had a previous strong foundation of math but they just haven't used it for a long time, then this book can serve as a refresher.

I didn't want to waste my money so I still made the book somewhat helpful. I bought another by Danica McKellar; Math doesn't suck and while it was written specifically for girls in elementary school, it can be very useful for grown ups too. I find her explanations much better. So I used her book to understand what was going on and completed the limited amount of excercises in All the math you'll ever need.
There might be other good basic math books out there besides Danica McKellar's and something directed toward grown ups too but I needed something good and fast NOW.

This book resumes all the math you'll ever need if you work as a janitor or a clerck, that said, it does a good job at explaining the basic mathematics of elementary and secondary school. The weakness of this book: it barely touches geometry, in it you'll only find how to measure the perimeter and area of rectangles, triangles and circles, nothing on volume or angles.
It's a well written book, and overall a good one, and with more pages on geometry, it would have been an excellent one. Four stars.

Format: Paperback
This a beautiful resource book with easy to understand lessons, funny stories, and no unneccesary math terms! This book has taught me long division, long multiplication, interest rates, and tutored me a bit in finding the area of circles! I keep this book handy during class to read in my spare time so I can excell in my mathematics skills. This book is great for going ahead, turoring, and for adults who need to brush up on math!

I am not even halfway through this book and have learned a lot. Math is and has always been my worst subject. I know more now than I have ever known about math. I'm sure by the time I am done with this book I will still be a satisfied customer.
