After almost 20 years in the transportation industry, I decided to go back to school for a Bachelor's degree. I quickly ran into a problem- my my SAT test scores were old. I had a choice to take a non-credit "skill-building" course (math 099) or I could take the Accuplacer placement test. If I scored high enough, I could go directly into college level math saving me precious time and money. Since the Accuplacer at my college costs only $5, I opted for that. I knew I had to sharpen my math skills but I was in for a rude awakening when I received my college's study guide. It contained complicated algebra to include logarithms, imaginary numbers, quadratic equations, mind-boggling factoring, geometry, trigonometry, graphing, permutations, combinations, and the such. Huh? I took Geometry and Trig in high school but most of it I have forgotten.
The first time I took the Accuplacer, I used "Algebra Demystified" as a study guide; I was getting frustrated often. A... read more

As someone who has always struggled in math, I can honestly say this books saved me a lot of trouble. In high school, I took regular math courses. When I got to college however, I tested into remedial math. I got this book, studied it to the end, and was able to test into Precalculus! It's really helpful; everything is broken down into layman's terms. It starts from the very basics of math (elementary school level), and gradually progresses to calculus. Definitely worth the time and money.

And I really only did the first 4-5 chapters. If you do ALL of the chapters, you should place well into college level algebra and beyond. Just make sure that you write down and practice all of the facts he gives you at the beginning of the chapters; they are essential. Make sure you understand something before you move on too.
