Format: Paperback
This book is very limited in scope. In my opinion it is written towards a high school grad. It covers addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, (applied to fractions), solving for X, ratios, big numbers, areas, etc. The explanation is clear, but the examples have little variety. You are not instructed to apply the math to a broad variety of applications or situations. The section on personal finances and business math is so simplified that it is not useful.

I bought this book because my job search requires me to take civil service exams again and again for various jobs. The exams are full of mathematics (even if the job has nothing to do with that subject). I needed a math refresher course in the worst way when I realized that I'd forgotten my long division and multiplication, the more difficult stretches of the multiplication table, percentages, and anything to do with fractions. This book teaches you these things (and much more) in a very nice, courteous, non-intimidating, non-condescending manner. I really appreciate it. I don't want to become a mathematician. I just want to recall enough to get by. Thank goodness this book helps you do that. I definitely recommend it. I bought it together with a similar refresher math book and found out that this one is the only one you really need.

Math is not like riding a bike, after a while one forgets about how to calculate fractions and so on. I needed something to refresh my brain because I wanted to pass my GED exam. I didn't even finish the book and was confident enough to take the test and I passed! This book is great, step by step and moves on to something harder. Highly recommend for refreshing one's math knowledge quickly!

This book resumes all the math you'll ever need if you work as a janitor or a clerck, that said, it does a good job at explaining the basic mathematics of elementary and secondary school. The weakness of this book: it barely touches geometry, in it you'll only find how to measure the perimeter and area of rectangles, triangles and circles, nothing on volume or angles.
It's a well written book, and overall a good one, and with more pages on geometry, it would have been an excellent one. Four stars.

This book is for anyone who needs to brush up on their math skills and for anyone with dyscalculia or math disabilities. This book is a great review of "life math"--including how to calculate how much social security the government deducts from your paycheck and how to calculate tips and sales percentages. Full chapters are devoted to personal finances, rate & time problems (like figuring gas mileage), and interest rates. Not too scary for math phobics and definitely useful.
