5.0 out of 5 stars Basic Math and Pre-Algebra for Dummies 18 Jun 2009
By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
`Basic Maths and Pre-Algebra for Dummies' is a great place to go if you want to brush up on your math skills and have felt too intimidated before. In clear language and accessible format it guides your through key math concepts and introduces some basic algebra towards the end. It covers basic addition, subtraction, division and multiplication, as well as fractions, decimals and percents, graphs, geometry and stats, and basic algebra. This follows the typical `dummies' format, and if you have read any other of the dummies book you'll know what to expect. There is the slightly tongue in cheek text delivery, clear icons and obligatory part of tens at the back. I worked my way through this, accompanied with the workbook that goes with this, and my math skills increased incredibly. I realised I knew a lot of this information from school, but this book gave me the confidence to use it and it refreshed my memory about how certain equations are done. A great place to turn if you want to beat those maths demons.

2.0 out of 5 stars Basic Math 9 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book seems quite detailed and covers a whole range of topics, but considering it's meant to be written for dummies, I didn't find it easy to understand at all! I employed a private Maths tutor and took the book along with me on one occasion. He said himself that the methods used in the book were not the simplest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book 22 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had to relearn maths almost entirely to pass my training course, and this book had the answer. It's very well written and doesn't treat you like an idiot for not knowing the basics. Well worth picking up the workbook to go with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unsuitable for UK 25 April 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is full of US references, not UK. eg: dimes, cents and dollars as opposed to pounds and pence. I would not recommend this for UK buyers and am pretty dissapointed Amazon UK sold this to a UK customer.
