Publisher Comments:

When the numbers just do‛t add up…

Following in the footsteps of the successful The Humongous Books of Calculus Problems, bestselling author Michael Kelley has taken a typical algebra workbook, and made notes in the margins, adding missing steps and simplifying concepts and solutions. Students will learn how to interpret and solve problems as they are typically presented in algebra courses—and become prepared to solve those problems that were never discussed in class but always seem to find their way onto exams.

• Annotations throughout the text clarify each problem and fill in missing steps needed to reach the solution, making this book like no other algebra workbook on the market

W. Michael Kelley is an award-winning former math teacher and the author of six math books, including The Humongous Book of Calculus Problems, The Complete Idio‛s Guide to Calculus, The Complete Idio‛s Guide to Precalculus, and The Complete Idio‛s Guide to Algebra.

I love this book. After struggling with math for years and getting down to just needing that one math class in order to graduate, this book is helping me prepare for the placement test. Other books that have proclaimed themselves "easy" lie, this one doesn't. Every problem is broken down into easy to follow steps, helping me understand how things work in Algebra and why. I find myself working through the problems with more confidence and even kinda liking it. Thank you W. Michael Kelley for this outstanding book!
