Excellent Though Not Perfect,
This review is from: Basic Math and Pre-Algebra For Dummies (Paperback)This book provides step-by-step explanations that are easy to understand. It assumes you know nothing without insulting your intelligence. All of the bases are covered, and they are covered in order. If you've been frustrated trying to learn math from those clueless about teaching, this book should provide some welcome relief. I did find a couple of inaccuracies which appeared to be typos. Other than that, I have no complaints.
WARNING: I can't say the same for the next book in this series: "Algebra 1 for Dummies." That book is written by a different author, and it's terrible.
