HASH(0x9c9b8870) out of 5 stars A Joke Book For People With Excessive Free Time! April 3 2015
By Ash - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
One of the most horrible, time wasting books ever! I went half way through just because I couldnt believe what I was reading was serious! So the "author" enlightens the readers that one of the ten mental math techniques is to use the internet, another would be to ask your friends, another would be to count with your fingers, another would be to estimate!! This is a joke! I read halfway through, thinking there must be a catch somewhere, this cant be real!! I dont know how old Jason is but if he is anything beyond 16, he has to be on medication!

HASH(0x9ca59e40) out of 5 stars On the fence about this read Feb. 7 2016

I've been out of school for a very long time. I am looking into going back to college. I thought this might be useful considering I wasn't the greatest at math when I was in school, and I definitely have used much past the basic four since graduation so I have lost most of what I did learn. I was a little sad that it didn't really give many secrets like the title leads you to believe. He talks about technique, estimation, factors involved, guessing an answer, multiplying right to left, multiplying by 5, and psychological skill. I did finish the book, but didn't really have much of a better insight as when I began. Some of the tips we were taught in school so everyone should know them. Other tips are more just common sense especially in the computer/smartphone age. He touches on 10 ways to add, 10 ways to subtract, 10 ways to divide, 10 ways to divide, 10 ways to multiply, 10 ways to estimate multiplying, 10 ways to estimate dividing and ways to check your answers. I was hoping it would go beyond the basic four, but it didn't. For me it really wasn't very helpful, but I still liked reading more so out of curiosity just to see what he had to say. There might be a few items, but not many I could use to refresh my basic math skills. I didn't find any really amazing math tricks though. The title is a little misleading. It might be more useful for someone that has trouble with all or parts of the basic four. I did receive this ebook free in exchange for an honest review. I don't feel like it was a total waste of time. I did read the entire book. Most of it just wasn't for me.

I was given the opportunity to review Secret Of Mental Math Arithmetic: 70 Secrets To Super Speed Calculation & Amazing Math Tricks: How to Do Math without a Calculator Kindle Edition. I found this to be an easy and fun read. Really something that you could sit down and finish in a few hours. I have always been good with math, and was excited and hoped to learn some new things in regards to math. I am happy to report that I did learn some new shortcuts. The books is definitely full of simple shortcuts/pointers. Definitely not an in depth book about mental math, more about simple suggestion that if followed, it will make more complicated mental math algorithms possible. I like how the author says that when you can do math in your head people think you are a genius and that so very true. Additionally, the shortcuts in the book are to be practiced, one should not be under the impression that a few mins of reading this book and then one is automatically better at mental math. Through lots of practice I have become better at mental math. Whenever I do math in my head, my friends are always saying wow… you’re so smart etc. I like that I can relate with the author. I definitely enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves math. Please note I received this book at a discount or for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Good, solid concept. Better proofreading/editing would improve the reading experience. Definitely NOT for readers younger than 18.

HASH(0x9ca610c0) out of 5 stars > >> >>> Something about this eBook just does not add up - No Math Secrets here.. Feb. 1 2016
By Justin Time - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My own academic background took me through Physics and Computer Science with the inevitable emphasis
on Math with its many wonderful flavors. I was therefor intrigued by the catchy title of this eBook and accepted
the invitation to read it for my unbiased opinion. (The eBook is free at the time of this Review anyway)

Unfortunately, the more I read, the fewer stars I thought it deserved. The suggested 'fast' methods for mental
arithmetic calculations are anything but. The ebook does not share any useful 'secrets' either.

Some of the chapters are not even about getting an exact answer but only approximations. For Division of 2 numbers
for example it suggests you round the numbers and then divide them to get a ballpark value of what the answer might be.

Want to do Addition without using a Calculator? - The 'tricks' are to ask the question in a forum and get
the answer from someone else. What?? - or type it in a search engine and that will give you the answer.
And there is more along those dubious lines.

I am not sure how most of the material is helpful to anyone. In this format the eBook is very rudimentary, raw and
requires many more iterations before it can deliver substantial value to a reader.

Even more curious is a disclaimer at the beginning of the eBook that "It is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or
prevent any health problem or condition" .. ?? I doubt this eBook is a professionally supervised effort.
