5.0 out of 5 starsRecommended by professional tutor

This is an excellent adjunct to the classroom book, providing explanations and examples that help clear up misunderstandings in my students. I used it with an honors level geometry student who had some difficulties, especially with proofs, and it helped her quite a lot. Her grade improved, and she was delighted. I liked that the information was well organized, the examples were thorough, and all problem answers were in the back.
A great resource to get examples from as a teacher! It is also a good review book for students. I don't think this would work well as the sole method to learn Geometry. Khan Academy is better for that, but if you have or are taking a Geometry course this is a great support resource!
3.0 out of 5 starsAdequate learning tool, but not exceptional

Some of the answers are wrong!!, so don't rely solely on the answer key for grading. Concepts are described clearly, though dryly (not particularly engaging). Worked fine for an introduction to geometry for my 7th graders, reinforces algebra and problem-solving skills.
I purchased this after my daughter started seeing a tutor for geometry. Normally a straight A student, she was really struggling with geometry. The title suggested getting a book, as her class doesn't use one. It's been very helpful, and should still be helpful when she's taking college courses. It's straight forward, glad we went with this book.
