Editorial Reviews

Review

"Once we had a group of students who worked their way through the Hirsch/Goodman series, complaints about a gap between developmental and college level mathematics essentially disappeared. Students transitioned much more easily and, now, students who come to college algebra through our sequence succeed at rates higher then students who had no need of remediation."

"Great problem sets! Rigorous and flexible enough to work with various teaching styles."

About the Author

Lewis Hirsch (Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University) currently teaches in the mathematics department at Rutgers University. Dr. Hirsch teaches both developmental mathematics and higher level courses such as college algebra and pre-calculus. His experiences in the classroom make him committed to properly preparing students in lower-level courses so they can succeed in for credit courses, and this is reflected in the way he writes his textbooks.

Dr. Arthur Goodman (Ph.D., Yeshiva University) currently teaches in the mathematics department at Queens College of the City University of New York. Dr. Goodman takes great pride in the mathematical accuracy and in depth explanation in all of his textbooks.

Format: Hardcover
This book does a fanstastic job explaining the principles of basic algebra and incorporates really helpful word problems with each section. Each section also has review problems from previous sections so that you don't forget the principles you just learned.
There are lots of exercise problems so that you can practice as much as necessary.

I studied more advanced math over 15 years ago, and this was the perfect book to help me get back into math mode. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to self-study basic algebra.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Susan Baird on June 9, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This text was easy to use and had good examples. There were some mistakes in the answers in the book but overall the text is good. Excellent for the beginning algebra student. There is a student solution manual available for purchase but be aware that like the text, there are only answers to the odd numbered problems. The solution manual does show step by step how to solve the problems.

I used this textbook for a college math class and I did not understand anything it was trying to say. My prof explained how to do the math way better and I only referenced this book to look at the homework questions. If you are not going to be using the homework questions, i would not recommend buying the book because it wont help you a all.
