Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this as a refresher, and sitting down with pencil and paper pounding through this book is perfect for it!

You get each section split into a nice working introduction, with leading examples, and then a set of exercises. Answers are provided in the rear, so its very easy to go through a section, do the exercises and check yourself, self monitoring and trying this over and over thinking about what you're doing to use the skills you're refreshing is perfect.

You could use this as an introductory book, however I'd not recommend it, if you don't already know your linear equations, set theory etc then do not use this book as a lesson, don't learn from it. This book is very good at putting skills you have to use, and so refreshing and keeping skills keen. But its not got enough, nor adequate examples, to cover all the edge cases and so teach the subject.

My one major gripe with the book is that the exercises were repeatedly split over pages. You'd start the exercise only to have to turn the page, away from the question input data/examples, to finish them. This started in section 1.1 and went right on through the book. I might assume this might be to stop teachers/classroom bods from simply photocopying the exercises and using it as a teaching aid, but that is only my guess because there were in cases ample room - with different page layout - for the whole exercise or better splitting out - or even just the input data being repeated on the next page with the rest of the questions to save having to break your concentration to with the page back to look at the input.

The quality of the book is a simple paper back, floppy style, with a glossy wipe away cover. Mine already had a definite kink to it as its been flopped about as I've worked through the pages, but the quality is decent to good.

Algebra II by Chris Monahan

I love maths and reading about it, teaching it and using it in my work as a lecturer and business owner.

The book

This is a continuation from the book Algebra I and deals with some of the more involved sections in Algebra. This book is part of McGraw Hills 'Practice makes Perfect' series which is very good and well priced.

Structure

The book is structured that the reader can just do a single Algebra topic or follow it as a course. There is plenty here with lots of worked examples and explanations accompanied by exercises with answers.

Coverage.

The book covers enough to get a really good grounding and will be useful to any GCSE student or adult returning to education who may be a b it rusty with Algebra.

Read book one first.

As this is a follow on volume from book one the lessons and techniques learned in book one are assumed here. I would advise anyone not sure about their Algebra skills getting book one first and then this one if needed.
If your maths is really rusty or just bad I would recommend the `Basic Math' book in this series by Carolyn Wheater. This book really fills in on the basics and makers tackling books like this much easier as it under pins the basic knowledge of number that is really needed for algebra (I have had 30 years of Algebra experience and know what's needed!).

Overall.

This is a good introduction to the more technical and challenging techniques used in Algebra. The book is well written and comes highly recommended.

This book is from the US but reminds me dimly of my struggles a long time ago to master maths at A level. If I had been sitting alone in the long summer holidays trying to get to grips with the subject and wanted practice, this book would have helped. If I were a maths teacher wanting to set a few more challenging problems to my class, I would be tempted to make use of this book. It is also very concise in explaining issues - so good to hear someone else explaining something that you might not have quite got first time in class. It might be good to support a university or A level refresher course that needed maths to support another subject - checking out what people know and getting them to a common starting point.

It includes basics in each topic area before getting quite advanced. But its tone is quite brisk - more of the style of a revision or practice book than one where you are trying to grasp concepts for the first time. Unlike other text books I have seen for a UK reader, it does not have helpful tips in the margins, or explanations in the answers pages at the back about how you should have got to the right answer - so when you get stuck you might get really stuck without a teacher. I am considering lending this to my maths enthusiast 14 year old nephew - I suspect he might like some of it. But not for my 13 year old who is slogging his way through the syllabus.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this book to relearn my algebra and maths in eneral , as mathematics especially functional maths is very good brain exercise. Interestingly my daughter who is proficient in maths was so excited about the book , its content and layout that we had to vie for its use. This is a well written book , self explanatory and teaches you what you need to know. Self explanatory in that you can learn on your own with plenty of practice exercises for each subject area till you master it, hence the title practice Makes perfect. A wide range topics are covered over 12 chapters. The chapters covered include :-Functions, Linear equations and inequalities, Quadratic relationships,Complex numbers, Polynominal functions, rational and irrational functions, exponential and Logarithmic functions, Sequences and series, Introduction to probability, Introduction to statistics,Trigonometry and Graphs of trigonometric functions. I particularly found the chapters on introduction to probability and introduction to statistics very helpful as I recently had to sit a professional medical exam laden with statistics and evidence based medicine. It was a question of back to basics and this book was immensely helpful.
I highly recommend this book both for individual learning, for teaching and for AS and A level maths basic foundation.
