Actually, I was referring to the 7th edition, but I have no doubt that the 8th edition is superb as well. This series of books breaks down problems in an easy to understand format. Includes pre-algebra, algebra, quadratic equations, trig, and 3D geometry. For someone that had never taken algebra before, I managed a 4.0 GPA with this book.

The book it self is not very informative. It goes on the assumption that you already know prior math and formulas. It will show you how but not in a step by step manner. GREAT SELLER THOUGH. FAST SHIPPING.

Traditionally I've struggledl in math class environments, combined with an on-line course where I could self-teach at my own pace, this book was great as a guide, with understandable examples and practice sets; allowing me to pass the course with a "B"--in terms of this subject, that gets this book an "A.".

Amazon I was really disappointed with your customer service reps when I called and asked if this book comes with my Math lab series your customer service said it does. THIS book does not include the MY MATH CODE it was needed for the class.

This is a required book for school, I saved a considerable amount of money and it was quickly sent to me. I appreciate the fact I can get college books online and that they are less expensive then at the bookstore.

This is one of my favorite math books to date. It is a wonderful resource to teach from. I hope its use will increase over time, and more like it will be written.

This is not a complicated, in depth, advanced algebra book. This book contains the simple, common sense skills that you will need in any job. It has easy-to-follow-lessons and plenty of practice problems.
