I really can't add much to the previous reviews of how GREAT this book is! It is clearly, in my opinion, the only way to teach/learn (love the teachers that reviewed this book who are implementing these concepts in their class!!) Algebra. It makes so much sense and when something make sense...well, you just GET it! I tried, believe me, I tried to understand and do well in Algebra in high school. I took Algebra twice; once when I was a Freshman and then again when I was a Sophmore. Both times, to no avail. My grades were a D & C, respectively (A for effort though, right?). Trying to tackle this again?? What am I...crazy? After being out of high school 25 years?!
I have to agree...wish there were more "brain ticklers", but as another reviewer mentioned, now that we know Algebra, we can always pick up an additional workbook! Also, as a reviewer mentioned, I found it helpful to review the previous chapter before going on to the next, especially if you've spent some time away from the book.
I almost enjoy doing math (I said...*almost*!) with this book! It is just so clear, concise and very easy to read. Trust me, I should know! Don't hesitate ~ get this book! You won't regret it!
