Synopses & Reviews
Most of the test preparation books for the New York State Regents Integrated Algebra exam are strikingly similar. They offer review material at the beginning of the book—
material that is normally gone over in class.At the end of each book is a series of previous Regents exams, followed by the answers and explanations.
Some publishers—notably Barron’s—include only previous exams, which are already freely available to teachers and students via the NYS Education Department’s website.Because teachers already have access to old exams, the inclusion of these exams in their original test format is redundant.
These old exams can really only be used toward the end of the semester, shortly before the Regents exam is given. If a class/student has not reviewed certain topics during the year, it is impossible for the student to get any benefit from having access to the complete Regents exam.
Our Regents Integrated Algebra book is not a traditional “review” book—it's a test preparation workbook. Our approach is truly a way for students to review the material that will be on the exam in a sequential mannerso that they can review the material while they are actually studying that topic—and then review it again shortly before the test.
Our Regents Integrated Algebra workbook consists of sequential, topic-specific test questions followed by explained answers. The in-depth answers themselves serve as the review. Included at the end of the book is a full-length test similar to the Regents Integrated Algebra exam (using actual past questions culled from multiple Regents exams) but unique to the book. This full-length Regents practice exam serves as an evaluation at the end of the semester or year, to pinpoint the students’ weaknesses. Students can then go back and study those sections with the types of questions that gave them trouble.
Topics covered in the book include:
Number Sense and Operations
Algebra
Geometry
Measurement
Statistics and Probability
