I bought this book right after I started a class in Linear Algebra where the first chapter had us working some geometric proofs using the rules for vector addition, subtraction, and scalar multiplication.

Although this book strictly focuses on geometry and does not use vectors in its proofs, it did clearly illustrate proofs that were easy enough to think through in terms of vectors.

The book is well-written and begins with a review of Methods of Proof, Lines & Angles, Perpendicularity, and Triangles before getting into specific geometric forms.

900+ pages and 900+ problems with a summary of theorems and properties at the end of the book. Some reviews at Amazon contain complaints about REA Problems Solvers, but I have always liked them and I really like this one. They are not intended to replace a textbook, but to give lots of examples over-and-above what a textbook would include.

For example, a few years ago I was studying College Algebra and I was having trouble understanding logarithms. So I reviewed the examples in the REA Problem Solver for Algebra and Trigonometry and worked some problems along with the REA book and then I saw how simple they really were. I have purchased REA Problem Solvers for Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra as well and have found all of them to be helpful with some being more useful or better-written than others.

One of the complaints about these books is that they are all written using a Courier-style font. This is true, but there are still Greek symbols, integral signs, exponents, etc (e.g. you do not see 10-squared written as 10^2 - they use a superscript for the exponent). Another complaint that I have seen is that they contain errors.

I wanted to get better at organizing my mind. You knew they taught Chess at West Point. Right? Well, Geometry makes you think. It makes you think in logical steps for problem solving. This book just gives example after example and exhaustively ingrains how to solve Geometry problems. Along the way it coincidentally builds your endurance for solving other problems. This may not be the best book or the most cutting edge but it has such a huge mass of answers and ways to arrive at them that you will absorb the methods. I like it. You might say that if you stare at these pages long enough that you learn by osmosis. I think there should be a book like this in every field of endeavor. Call it canned experience. Oh, a better typeset would be nice.
