An excellent read. Feb. 6 2005
By Leroy E. Strong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is by far one of the leading texts in geometry. It contains interesting historical facts as well as an outstanding approach to proofs in an axiomatic system. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in pursuing a rigorous endeavor into geometry.

Great for Geometry High Schools Teachers July 15 2008
By Carlos A. Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book for a person who wants to know the real proofs of the things they are teaching in high school geometry. You could teach yourself many of these proofs and it also offers great references which one could find in case of any confusion.

Modern Geometry course Sept. 11 2013

Everything is fine with this book, although it would be better if it was hard cover. But everything is explained in a (usually) understandable manner. There are a few tricky ones, but Venema covers everything well.

Hey, its geometry. This was a required text for a class. It was a little hard to follow for a novice because it assumes you know a lot about other forms of math. In particular it uses a lot of symbols used in set notation, so if you are reading the text to learn specific postulates and theorems you may have to look somewhere else for the definition of the symbols. They do not have the definitions anywhere in the text. They also utilize some algebra without explanation. The seller that provided this book did a great job. It was in great condition and arrived in the time frame promised.
I really enjoyed the exploration of triangles and circles July 29 2014

Format: Paperback
I used the first edition of this book in my Senior level geometry class. It was a very enjoyable book for me. There was a lot of commentary about the history of the subject and concepts pertaining to geometry before it got into the theorem proof section. I really enjoyed the exploration of triangles and circles.
