    5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written Complete and Way Way Too Long for My Students Nov. 24 2008
    By Jim Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Paperback
    This is a well presented review of geometry and for students preparing for a comprehensive final or the New York State Regent's Exam, it is good to see the practice exam in the back. But this book is too long. If I could get a student to read this book, I could get them to read our text the way it should be read.

    Here's the problem. Kids flunk geometry because they won't take the time to learn, much less understand, the language of geometry (definitions, theorems, postulates). For help in learning and understanding what high school (and junior college) students need to learn to be successful, I recommend Tutor in a Book's Geometry. (And for Algebra 1, Garlic Press' Books 1 and 2).

    For the SAT's there are only 14 geometry problems so the Barron's geometry section in its SAT Review book is best.

    It just seems to me, that as good a job as Leff does with his Geometry review, no student that I have had who had the discipline to read through all this material, would need to read it to begin with. I do think Leff did a fine job in presenting a comprehensive review for test preparation, especially for a student who as we say in education, "didn't hear the music the first time". But either a dedicated parent or a tutor would have to continuously monitor the student's progress or I doubt very much that the average student will even bother to read it. Unmotivated students need more visuals and encouragement and graphic organizers (TIB's Geometry has all of that).

    3.0 out of 5 stars I liked it and I hated it March 27 2013
    By Leonard S. Joesten - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I liked it because I successfully self-taught myself geometry by reading every word and number in the book. The chapters are well organized and thorough. I hated all the errors that other reviewers mentioned. I counted them as I studied the book. I counted 70 errors. The errors included wrong number and letters, incorrectly labelled charts, and wrong answers. The errors increased through the book. The first error is on page 57. The last page of the answer sheet has 8 errors. It seems like the proofreader became sloppier as the book progressed, giving up entirely on the last few chapters. Overall geometry information rates this book a 5. Errors rate a 1. Average is 3. People who rated this 5 probably only reviewed parts of the book they needed to brush up on. This book is like a bad relationship. I learned a lot from the experience, but I wouldn't do it again.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Good Explanations but Plenty of Errors Jan. 17 2012
    By L - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Paperback
    Although the author does a good job of explaining key concepts in geometry, trying to work out some of the practice problems can be frustrating. Like many other exam guides, this one could use a good round of editing. You struggle with problems for a long time only to finally realize that there is an error in the problem itself. This would be a good book if someone had gone back through, made sure the problems were free of errors, and *then* published it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Used it last year, scored well above 90 on the Regents July 7 2010
    By Nabeed Zaman - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This review book might be a little too comprehensive for last minute review, but it works well as a supplement to the class. Some students find certain concepts to be difficult to grasp at first take, so this book provides good all around exposure through examples and Regents-level practice questions. I used this book to prepare for the June '09 Geometry Regents (the first administration of the exam after the transition from Math A/B) and scored well above 90 on the exam. Would not recommend it for last month review, but would rather purchase it some time early in the year to help thoroughly review topics one by one, taking a more systematic approach as the exam gets closer and closer.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but not for the faint of heart. Can't beat the price, normally $13.95 in stores Sept. 13 2011
    By NYDrummer429 - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I am a high school Geometry teacher in New York and I bought it knowing how difficult the questions in the book can be. The blue Barron's books have always way more difficult than they should be but since I teach honors and wanted some more challenging questions, this was a good resource.

    YOU CAN NOT BEAT THE PRICE!!! This item costs $13.95 at local brick and mortar stores so to get this for $7.15, it's a steal.

    Just please don't think that this is a solid study book for your average high school geometry student. It will go far over their head. But for me and the reason I need it, it's very good.
