The best GED math text on the market right now Feb. 25 2008
By Lori - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have been teaching the GED for 20+ years, and I insist that each of my students own this book. First of all, it breaks down the basic math skill areas into clear steps with helpful examples. Then it gives the student lots of opportunities to review what they have learned and assess their growth with mini-tests after every 3 lessons and unit reviews. Also you can practice for the GED by taking three full length practice tests. The answers and explanations in the back can help a student learn from their mistakes. Best of all, the level of difficulty matches the actual GED pretty closely (not true of other publishers) so if the student can do well in this book, you can expect that they will do well on the GED as well.

My three complaints about this book are:
the chapter on percents is confusing. There is a much better way to teach percents that asking students to memorize and manipulate a diagram.

There needs to be more on charts and graphs, which are getting bigger and bigger on the GED. Also I wish there were more on ratios & proportions. I always find that I have to supplement the book when I get to this lesson because SV gives us very few word problems, and they are all too easy.

There should be a bigger section on multi-step problems, also another huge area on the GED. SV is great for breaking down the test into skills, but sometimes questions ask you to work more than one skill at a time.

SV Math can use improvements, and I would supplement it with some of the newer stuff from Contemporary (another publisher of GED books) but as a basic GED math text, it really is the best book out there. I highly recommend it.

This one is the absolute best !!!!!! March 8 2010
By Marcella - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this GED book for my 12 year old son. I am a home school mom and this GED book, helps my child to understand fractions and algebra better then any math book I've ever ran across. I love how this book breaks down and simplifies learning math. This book is not just for those who are studying for their GED, this book is good for any middle school-high school aged child, who may need that extra help in math. As a home school mom, this GED math book makes my job a whole lot easier to teach.

GED_ Fear Math no more Nov. 7 2011
By GoodtoGo - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this book to tutor a 28 year old who had always been afraid of doing math - the book is simple yet comprehensive - on some subjects there could be a little more "color commentary" in descriptions - all in all an excellent companion for any high school student struggling with math - just know your grade school multiplication tables and simplest grade school math skills -follow instructions - do the tests in pencil - repeat tests often until GED Mathematics (Steck-Vaughn Ged Series)you consistently score 80-90% - you'll do fine on your GED Math test... Good luck to you & may God bless...GoodtoGo

Decent but not enough... April 13 2012
By Doug DePew - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've taught GED to the Steck Vaughn series for a decade in a prison. In that time, I've probably seen a few hundred of my students pass the test. The series is great, but the math book is only adequate if you already have a decent background in math.

It does do a great job of hitting key skills. The calculator exercises and supplementary instruction on how to fill out specific questions such as grid questions are great. It's in actual mathematic instruction that it often falls way short. There isn't enough repetition to actually use the book to learn new skills. It nearly always takes supplementary material to teach basic math skills to my students. I sometimes have guys who don't know how to do basic multiplication or long division. There's no way to learn it from scratch out of this book. It goes through that area too fast. The same applies to most other math skills.

If you need to learn math skills, there are far superior sources to this book. I'd study out of them first. Steck Vaughn makes a companion workbook that's essential if you need to learn math. It helps a lot. If you need to refresh math skills you already learned, this is a great book to prepare you for the GED test. I would suggest working through this book first before testing either way. It teaches things that are peculiar to the GED test.

Excellent GED Book!!! April 5 2010
By Sun - Published on
Format: Paperback
I used this book as well as the corresponding books for the other GED subjects and was able to pass the GED with perfect and near perfect scores. My GED instructor even commented on the fact that I was done with each test within a fraction of the time allotted for each test.

There is way more info in these books than you actually need to know for the test. If you can master what is in these books you will pass the GED on the first try with no problems.
