5.0 out of 5 stars not for kids July 28, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The thing I like about the Schaum's series is that they don't try to be your friend. If you're going to try to sit down to learn something intricate like geometry, you've got some serious work to do, and the sooner you get to it the better. To this end, there are no pictures in the book (other than geometric diagrams, of course), no blurbs on famous geometers or famous applications of geometry. No, this sucker's as dry as a bone.

But that's good. This is a book for motivated, adult learners. You've got your explanations, your worked examples, and then tons of exercises with answers to all of them in the back of the book - not just the odd. The thing I like about this book, now in its fourth edition (white cover), is that it takes an example-exercise approach to geometry, rather than forcing you to memorize postulates.

Even if your teacher is the most entertaining guy in the world, you're still going to have a lot of tedious work to do if you plan on mastering geometry. The way this book is laid out is an accurate reflection of that.

They say that many of these Schaum's outlines, while they might be helpful supplementary material for a course, do not go deep enough to replace the course itself. I would disagree if that charge were leveled against this one: Schaum's Geometry easily provides everything you'd get in a high school geometry course and more.

The only criticism of this book that I can muster is the following: of all the major branches of math, geometry is one you kinda need a live teacher for. For this reason, the Schaum's approach -- in parts -- is unsatisfying. The whole Schaum m.o. of humorless exercises, dry explanations, no pictures, etc. can work very well for algebra, calculus, trig, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book saved my bacon! October 15, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book condenses out the fluff from a typical textbook, and details solution methods for almost every conceivable problem. The price is a STEAL compared to hundred-dollar textbooks. If you are struggling, or if you want a great book to use before that big test, you have to get this book. I'm getting all A's on my Geometry tests now, and their concise explanations helped solidify new concepts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of typos April 29, 2012
Format:Paperback
This book is really helpful and explains things clearly but you should be warned it has a lot of typos in the problems (at least a couple per chapter). If you get this book and find yourself struggling with one of the problems, you should be aware that it is quite possible the book is wrong and not you.
