5.0 out of 5 stars It does what it says on the cover 17 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
If like me you had an awfull time understanding maths in school (pre 1980's) and you now need to get to grips with the subject (kids homework getting harder!) then Understanding Maths by Graham Lawler is a 'must have book'. He takes a number of areas including decimals, fractions, percentages, angles and even algebra - and shows you what you need to know to solve the problems, all explained in a simple, friendly manner.
On completion you will want to study the subject further.
Wish I had this book 30 years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars understanding maths 23 Sep 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent book for entry level adult learners. I've had trouble using basic maths all my adult life, frustration finally got the better of me and I found this title during a web search.
Lawler's book has opened up the subject to me.
