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.
