Basic Math and Pre-Algebra (Cliffs Study Solver) by Jonathan J. White, Teri Stimmel, Scott Searcy

By Jonathan J. White, Teri Stimmel, Scott Searcy

This publication is admittedly reliable. I plan on taking the GRE within the fall, so i needed to do a whole evaluation, and never simply examine the "strategies" that would aid me be an excellent try out taker. i wished to check my historical past in math and verbal and i am operating my approach from simple arithmetic via Calculus & Trig with those books.

I disagree with the 1star submit. i believe this ebook is excellent for somebody who wishes an entire refresher, and it DOES in truth outline what an "integer" is. i feel it really is nice. i am not paid to claim this, i am not the writer, or the author's relative, or something like that...I consistently wonder whether a few of the bad stories come from aggressive authors who wish you to shop for their booklet instead.

But besides, i am half approach via this ebook. i like how they provide actual lifestyles EXAMPLES to make the issues extra with ease comprehensible. i cannot wait to complete this ebook and cross directly to "pre algebra" then "Algebra." i really got here on-line to determine if Cliffnotes makes similar books which may support me brush up on ideas for the verbal portion of the GRE.
