I bought this book for my [...]son, who is homeschooled. It has been the best textbook for self-learning we have ever encountered---on any subject, bar none.

Mr. Yang has done a marvelous job of breaking down concepts, illustrating them with clear instruction and examples, and struturing the exercises so that students get a sense that they are truly building their math skills, step by step. And they are. I see this as the beginning of my son's journey into higher and higher math.

In other words, using this book to learn algebra has been, among other great things, fun.

I can definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn or bone up on Algebra. It is wonderful for homeschooling.

I intend to buy several other books authored by Mr. Yang. His passion for teaching, not to mention his skill at it, really comes across. Thank you, Mr. Yang.

I just bought this book for my daughter who is learning Algebra I. This book is much better than the $80 book she had been using. Why is this book so great? First of all, it has many examples of different problems in each chapter. The examples not only give the answer, but it shows all the steps. There are pages of different types of examples. The other reason it is so great is there is so much repetition. Even if you do not need to use every problem, it is there for you when you need a lot of repetition to reinforce concepts. All the explanations are clear and concise.

Each chapter starts with very helpful concise summary with good examples and are followed by many good exercises. This book is much better than other books. This is much better than many of school math books which are very thick and lengthy, but may not be really helpful.

I purchased this book for my son after reading a review. Today was the first day I needed the book and it was a huge help. I haven't looked at an algebra problem in over 20 years and my son needed help with slope-intercept and parallel and perpendicular lines. We opened the book to the appropriate section, did the first few examples together and this jogged my memory so much that I was able to help him complete complex problems. Within 10 minutes he was doing all the problems on his own and EVERY answer was correct. My son is only 12 years old but takes Algebra 1 at the high school level. I highly recommend this book.

I bought this book to brush up on my skills before taking College Algebra and Precalculus. This book breaks down everything and also includes definitions and tons of problems to work. The book seems to follow a sensible order as far as the math building on itself. This is the best study guide I've ever bought. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone brushing up on their skills, a high school/college student, or general reference to help kids with their homework. Also the author provides an email adress and fax number if you are confused and need help with any problems free of charge! I would also recommend the second series in this book (Algebra II with Precalculus). Overall great buy! I don't know why people don't know about this author and his books!

I've been homeschooling my sons for many years. I've seen countless textbooks on every subject from elementary school through high school. This is the best math textbook I've ever seen by a huge margin. Nothing else even comes close.

1. The examples are simple, straightforward, and take small steps in difficulty, making it very easy to follow the progression.
2. There are tons of problems, and learning math is about practice, practice, practice.
3. Each section is well organized and throughly covers its topic.
4. It includes sample questions from PSAT, SAT, ACT, and High School exit exams.

I absolutely, positively will purchase his Algebra II book for next year.

This works well for the 9 middle school students whom I home school. I like the simple format with a clear explanation on one side of a page and appropriate exercises on the other side. This does however, require a somewhat dense page layout that is black and white with no pictures or interesting graphics. I explain each lesson, and provide my own visual amplifiers so it works well for me.

Years ago our local school adopted a program called "Connected Math." I was concerned that my child was not being introduced to algebra properly, and felt that if she didn't get a good foundation, she would struggle with math for the rest of her school years. I came across this book when I was looking for a good book that introduces algebra concepts, and supports the lesson with a sufficient number of exercise problems. I'll admit that it wasn't easy at first to get my daughter to do "extra" math. This all changed when her class was learning to solve equations, and she was the only student who understood how to solve the problems. This book has not only given my daughter an appreciation for math, but has also given her the confidence to pursue more difficult courses in high school, like AP Calculus.

I am now purchasing a clean copy for my second child who will be learning pre-algebra this year. My thanks to the author for putting together a book that has really had a positive impact on my child, and has given her the foundation to excel in her subsequent math classes.
