My daughter was struggling with Geometry (specifically with proofs). This text allowed her to get a basic overview of geometric concepts before tackling formal proofs. This is great as a refresher course, although you'll need another source to actually practice the formal proofs.
There were a couple of answers in the answer key that were incorrect as well, which can certainly be misleading for others who might stumble over that them.

Too many mistakes in the book. The author is confused about the units. At least in one place the area of a triangle is given in meter square and the sides are in inches.
Answer key has numerous mistakes as well.

*This is her son's message* I am new to Geometry, I have never before taken it, and on the pretest I had already detected errors where I confirmed with customer service that I was correct. Also there are errors in other chapters and a few problems in chapter 11, which I also confirmed in a later email with CS that I was right again. The book's title is Geometry Success in 20 Minutes a Day but the quality of the information inside the book looks like it was put together in 20 minutes. I was seriously hoping for more.

Okay, first of all, most geometry books for high school and college cost around $150, weigh more than a brick, and are filled with so much fluff that its impossible for students to remember it all and any teacher to effectively cover every aspect of every chapter unless he/she goes through the book very fast which will leave the student behind.

This book on the other hand is basic and to the point. It cuts out all the unesseccary fluff and covers the basics for geometry in a fashion that will leave the reader comprehending everything. Its written to the point that anyone could grasp the fundamentals of geometry. One of the best things I like about this book is that each page is very open with a lot of white space and is not crammed with a bunch of visual garbage which makes it easier for the eyes to follow.

The examples are very clear and shows the reader step-by-step how to work through each problem so they will be prepared to take the quiz at the end of the each chapter.

As for my personal opinion, I highly recommend this book for people who need a quick and easy refresher in order to prepare themselves for the harder more in-depth geometry courses in college. It also serves great as a reference. This book will build the basic foundation of your geometry studies. Also, I think that this book, combined with the Practical Math, Algebra, and Trigonometry versions are the best 4 books you can buy to prepare yourself for the ASVAB test. The books are small, to the point, and are all you really need to know to succeed.

I bought this book hoping to brush up on geometry before school started, but the grammar is so badly done that I couldn't stand reading it. However, bad grammar isn't the reason why I'm writing this review, but because a lot of the math is contradicting, horrifically written and incorrect.

If you are a beginner, teacher of geometry, preparing for a test or anything else that makes you want to buy this book, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY AND TIME. You'll have better luck with the "______ for dummies" series than these books, especially the geometry version.

Great geometry tutorial and refresher. One thing to watch out for though is the publisher uses an exponent next to the unit identifier for square areas and cubic volumes. For example square feet are displayed as 4 ft <sup>2</sup> rather than 4 sq ft.

Clear and concise, this is what the geometry textbook should be. I bought this for my step-son who is struggling with geometry and this has helped him get a better handle on the subject. A fantastic supplement to class materials, I highly recommend this book.

I went through this with my daughter in the summer between 7th and 8th grade to get her comfortable with some of the topics covered in the formal course. She felt it was helpful. She got As in the real class. I got a good refresher too.
