I bought this book Geometry for Dummies as i've just started an engineering degree course and wanted something to refresh my knowledge, the book gives clear & detailed instructions and would be useful for anyone from gcse students to university students. I wasnt sure what level this would be aimed at but was pleased it wasnt just the basics and was able to really stretch my knowledge. Recommended.

Another fantastic book written by Mark Ryan. Of all the for Dummies books I've got now (in an attempt to learn things in a simple way) I've found the ones written by Mark Ryan to really fit the bill when it comes to explaining things in a clear and simple way.

This book is really helping me to understand geometry and apply proofs. I know all about definitions, theorems and postulates now.

Those old days at school where geometry was very confusing led me to believe that I could never grasp the subject, but this book has really changed that!

I honestly think the author is fantastic and I recommend this book and other by him.

Same as my comments for the Geometry Workbook by the same author, they are both my favourite book on school geometry and I highly recommend them.
