Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a great supplement for my review of Math. Just the way it is presented makes it a joy to review. Straight and to the point. I plan on using the others in this line of books to hopefully get up to pre-calc for college.

However, I gave it four stars because of the unbelievably amount of errors found within. Where was the proof reader before publishing? Im at chapter 6 and have found approx 30+ errors. Ive lost count, something like one every other page or so.

I said above that I value these books, the errors have got to stop... if and when one reaches a level that he/she is not sure what it is they're doing, how will they know the right answer? They won't and will be misled, unfortunately.

To sum up, I definately approve of Schaums methods of supplementing mathematics but there needs to be some higher level of accuracy. Luckily, they are cheap and one would be wise to purchase additional material as well.

I bought this book for one of my adult students. She is from a country in eastern Africa that does not emphasize women's education. Once I had her started with chapter 1, she was able to understand how to complete the rest of the book on her own.

My son needs some real education in math (he is 7.5 years old in second grade). I use this book to set the curriculum and scope of teaching him math. This book serves as the basis to learn algebra. So far he loves it and understands math is not all about just addition/subtraction/multiplication and division.
