Restore your math-confidence March 16 2012
By Ds N. J. Prinsloo - Published on
Format: Paperback
The author has a real gift for conveying mathematical concepts in a concise, easy-to-understand way. I had vague memories of high school math which never failed to fill me with dread. Now I feel confident with fractions, algebraic equations and basic trigonometry (I got sin, cos and tan - remember them? - in one page). A great read if you want to brush up on everyday math.
