5.0 out of 5 stars A constant on time and precission Sept. 21 2002
I really remember having to go through math and trigonometry under tutors that kept on pounding on your head that math was a neccesary nuisance, until I came across this remarkable book, I can tell you that it so clear and impressive that anyone, with or without mathematical background will be able to understand it. Remember that math is the universal language and for this book the piece by piece attack on the theme is more than enough to understand it, spanish is advisable though not essential, this book teaches you to love math and makes it fun, open and easy, it can be applied on your everyday life.
It takes you by the hand step by step from two variable equations to full scale three dimensional matrix series, giving it sense to a whole new world of mathematical thinking, right now I am going through a proccess to start my Masters by Research on Australia (On Biomedical Sciences), and to begin with I needed to refresh my memory on some algebra and trigonometry, I took some steps towards books like the Tippler and Shaums, and though they claim the easiness of use of its contents, to my surprise more that 80% percent of my answers were coming from the Baldor series.
Sometimes is easy to under estimate a book that comes from a neighboring country that is say "underdeveloped" but I think it is about high time that we might start to share some common knowledge that would enrich our mutual knowledege. By now I haven't found any book that comes closer to the comprehention that this book opens to the novele and experienced mathematician, I sincerely recomend this text to anyone that might be submerged into mathematic themes from shallow to deep, belive me it will not disappoint anyone, or at least it hasn't done so, I know more than a 100 people between students and serious proffessionals and investigators that have used it and are still using it. It has run water under the bridge since I used it and it is still brilliant and robust.

Recuerdo que cuando era un niño en la escuela primaria mi padre y mi madre se dedicaban a enseñarme como resolver los problemas del artimética, luego pasaron al algebra y finalmente en el liceo estudie la geometria plana y del espacio, en todos los caso me apoye con los libros de Aurelio Baldor, son obras excepcionales, muy claras en sus planteamientos, recuerdo más especificamente el de algebra ya que ha pasado de generación en generación desde 1952 en mi familia, originalmente era de mi padre, luego de mi madre y de mis tios/as y así paso a mi y mi hermano, ahora es de mis dos primas y subsecuentemente ese mismo libro servira a las siguientes generacionaes de mis familia.
El aspecto más resaltante de estos libros es que estan escritos en un lenguaje tal que orientan al lector, le dan las herramientas para abordar temas cada vez más complejos, de hecho en la universidad recordaba, más que recordar, sabia que entendia y que en el fondo se debia a la base en artimetica, algebra y geometria. Recientemente he leido libros de E. Maor y W. Duham e inmediatamente recorde los planteamientos básicos de los libros de Baldor.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST May 15 2000
Mi ALGEBRA BALDOR es la ediciom 1963. Fue primero de mi hermana, luego mi hermano, luego mia, luego mi hermana mas pequena y de alli ha saltado a los vecinos y a mis sobrinos.
Simplemente me recuerda los mejores anos de mi vida especialmente con el aprendizaje del ALGEBRA, mi profesor fue exelente, todo era como un juego y al final obteniamos una respuesta acertada (siempre que aplicaramos las formulas y procedimientos correctos). En mi pais COLOMBIA, se ha utilizado por generaciones este libro como texto de ensenanza, es super-detallado y super-facil, todo se comprende mejor. En todos los casos el libro presenta: un nombre al procedimiento, una explicacion o significado, y de alli un ejercicio paso a paso. Ademas en su respaldo contiene las respuestas correctas a cada uno de los ejercicios que incluye.
Este libro en conjunto con la MATEMATICA BALDOR es todo lo que se necesita en la secundaria para realmente aprender y pasar luego a la TRIGONOMETRIA (tambien de BALDOR)
MI MATEMATICA y Mi ALGEBRA han viajado conmigo (ademas de un monton de libros) ya que para mi son un tesoro; ya he ayudado a una chica quien sobrepaso el desagrado del algebra porque no la entendia, ha un estado de satisfacion y poder porque comprendia los procesos. No importa el ididoma, los numeros son universales.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Algebra Book! July 31 2003
Ignore the picture and proceed to the book, besides Baldor was a genius Indian mathematician not Arab but that's besides the point. This book is outstanding, I remember working with this book back in my younger years, I have a degree in computer science. This book was the foundation to overcome all my Math classes through college. I got so good in Algebra when I was a teenager that even the girls wanted to sit with me in class. If you understand this well illustrated Algebra book no math class will be impossible to understand. However it's you that can make it happen, as you need to dedicate your time and effort to master it. In other words turn your TV off, enjoy it. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Learning Tool June 15 2004
All algebraic processes widely explained in a step by step reasoning method. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to learn algebra, or reinforce their knowledge in the subject.
One thing for the information of the reviewer on top of the list, and everyone else: Aurelio Baldor is actually a Cuban professor of mathematics, and absolutely not an Indian mathematician. It is advisable to do some research before writing a review.
