This book is an excellent overview for people who may not have had any algebra for a long time, it is clear, and has very good examples and explanations. Unlike many 'learn algebra' type books, this one shows you exactly how to do the problems from start to finish. I believe you could actually teach yourself an entire semester of algebra on your own with only this book as a teacher. I highly reccomend it.

The book is an excellent review of the subject for those who need to brush up on the subject after many years away from formal mathematics. Provides a down and dirty guide to entry level college algebra with emphasis on process. Problem solving rather than jargon takes precedence. Provides many useful rules that were never taught in school. I find myself referring to it frequently in higher level college math courses.

I got this book recently because I needed a simple small "transition" book to review all the Algebra I had lost from taking Geometry. Well... I really like this book. It is very useful and I hope to be able to easily integrate it with the rest of all my studying materials. I really like how it has such an easy interface and is small. (to fit in small backpack pockets) For these first months of Algebra II, you guys that are too dumb to remember you basic algebra (like me), get this book. It is a great tool for reviewing even the most important sections in Algebra. Thanks Cliff Notes... you allow people to slack at all times of the year. :)

After 13 years off of college, I went back last fall. The University required non-traditional students to take assessment tests, and in my first test, I was two points under the "passing" grade to get into college-level math courses. I bought the book, spent a weekend on it just reminding myself of all those things I forgot, and took the test again 3 days later, this time getting a perfect grade, saving myself several hundred bucks and a year of boring math classes.

The book is concise, clear, shows every step to each problem, and doesn't have a lot of empty filler. I can't recommend it highly enough, and it was very helpful for me.

A book worthy of any math student's library. Truly an exceptional help in grasping the fundamentals of Algebra in clear, direct terms. Couldn't be better.

I've tried other Algebra and Pre-Algebra resource books, but keep coming back to this one.

Clear, concise, handy paperback filled with 13 chapters which review all you will learn in Pre-Algebra and Algebra I classes. A core review, online resource guide and glossary of related terms are also in the book.

An excellent reference resource, the book contains the following subjects:

Chapter 1: Preliminaries and Basic Operations (Pre-Algebra)
Chapter 2: Signed Numbers, Fractions, and Percents (some is covered by Basic Math and Pre-Algebra classes).
Chapter 3: Terminology, Sets and Espressions
Chapter 4: Equations, Ratios, and Proportions
Chapter 5: Equations with Two Variables (touched on in Pre-Algebra)
Chapter 6: Monomials, Polynomials, and Factoring
Chapter 7: Algebraic Fractions
Chapter 8: Inequalities, Graphing, and Absolute Value (touched on in Pre-Algebra)
Chapter 9: Coordinate Geometry
Chapter 10 : Functions and Variations
Chapter 11: Roots and Radicals
Chapter 12: Quadratic Equations
Chapter 13: Word Problems

For those students in need of a bit more review of the basic concepts leading up to Algebra I, consider this book:
CliffsNotes Basic Math and Pre-Algebra Practice Pack.

Overall, this book covers the core subjects in a well-organized, concisely written, simple way, which makes understanding the concepts and applying them, much easier.

I picked up this book as a supplement to my cache of teaching materials, hoping to find some great shortcuts I could give to the students. While this is labeled as a "Quick Review," I expected there would be some depth in it -- that's where it falls just a little short.

On the plus side, if you or a student you know needs a really fast reminder of certain principles and formula -- consider adding this to your library.

This book is the 2nd Algebra book that I bought. I am the type of person who goes beyond what is given to me. This book is a great book for review purposes. I am over half way through the year in Algebra 1 and already know how to do everything that will be taught to me by the end of the year. I have really learned a lot from these books and I will say, that this is a great book for anyone that is studying Algebra.
