HASH(0x9f2e1ad4) out of 5 stars An excellent read. Feb. 6 2005
By Leroy E. Strong - Published on
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.

HASH(0x9f2e1b28) out of 5 stars Great for Geometry High Schools Teachers July 15 2008
By Carlos A. Rodriguez - Published on
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.

HASH(0x9f2e1e04) out of 5 stars Modern Geometry course Sept. 11 2013
By Derek - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0x9f2e1cfc) out of 5 stars I really enjoyed the exploration of triangles and circles July 29 2014
By Kat14 - Published on
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.
