TAKE THE ANXIETY OUT OF PRE-ALGEBRA

In Pre-Algebra Demystified, experienced math instructor Allan Bluman provides an effective, anxiety-soothing, and totally painless way to master the math fundamentals so crucial to college¿but so difficult for the math-impaired and anxious.

With Pre-Algebra Demystified, you master the subject one simple step at a time — at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide offers problems at the end of each chapter, quizzes to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the entire book.

This is a fast and entertaining self-teaching course that's specially designed to reduce anxiety. Get ready to:

* Build a working knowledge of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, ratios, and percents

* Grasp word problems and underlying math concepts

* Learn basic equations and operations with integers

* Construct a solid foundation for algebra, geometry, statistics, and business math

* Prepare to take pre-college exams

Get over math anxiety using a special program included in the book

* Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!

Pre-Algebra Demystified is your direct route to confidence with higher math!
