Summary
From the Back Cover: Take the anxiety out of pre-algebra. In Pre-Algebra Demystified, experienced math instructor Allan Bluman provides an effective, anxiety-soothing, and totally painless way to master the math fundamentals so crucial to college, but so difficult for the math-impaired and anxious. With Pre-Algebra Demystified, you master the subject one simple step at a time -- at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide offers problems at the end of each chapter, quizzes to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the entire book. This is a fast and entertaining self-teaching course that's specially designed to reduce anxiety. Get ready to: Build a working knowledge of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, ratios, and percents; Grasp word problems and underlying math concepts; Learn basic equations and operations with integers; Construct a solid foundation for algebra, geometry, statistics, and business math; Prepare to take pre-college exams; Get over math anxiety using a special program included in the book; Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!
