Publisher Comments:

Whether you want to learn more about algebra, refresh your skills, or improve your classroom performance, Algebra Demystified is the perfect shortcut.

Knowing algebra gives you a better choice of jobs, helps you perform better in science, computing, and math courses, ups your score on competitive exams, and improves your ability to do daily computations. And there's no faster or more painless way to master the subject than Algebra Demystified! Entertaining author and experienced teacher Rhonda Huettenmueller provides all the math background you need and uses practical examples, real data, and a totally different approach to life the "myst" from algebra.

With Algebra Demystified, you master algebra one simple step at a time--at your own speed. Unlike most books on the subject, general concepts are presented first --and the details follow. In order to make the process as clear and simple as possible, long computations are presented in a logical, layered progression with just one execution per step.

THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND SELF-TEACHING TEXT OFFERS:

  • Questions at the end of every chapter and section to reinforce learning and pinpoint weaknesses
  • A 100-questions final exam for self-assessment
  • An intensive focus on word problems and fractions--help where it's most often needed
  • Detailed examples and solutions

Synopsis:

This is a self-teaching guide for anyone who wants to learn, or to refresh their knowledge of, basic algebra without taking a formal course. Long computations are presented in a step-by-step format with one operation per step.

Synopsis:

Unlike most books on algebra, this guide lets readers master algebra one simple step at a time--at their own speed. "Algebra Demystified" is loaded with diagrams to reinforce mathematical concepts, along with exercise sets, chapter ending quizzes, and final exams to master the material.

Muriel, July 4, 2007 (view all comments by Muriel)
This book is a travesty and a big waste of time. Unlike the Pre-Algebra book in the Demystified series, this one brims with incomplete explanations. I'm on p. 96 and am constantly going online to find more complete explanations, thus the waste of time. I'm trashing this book and am in the process of finding something else. I'd put it up for sale, but I've written so many explanatory notes in it that it wouldn't be worth anything to anyone. That includes me. If you're considering buying this book, save yourself a lot of grief. Don't do it.
