To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I did this entire book in about a week leading up to my GMAT prep course and I definitely felt more confident about my math skills as a result. However, it is definitely missing statistics, proportions, interest, and likely several more key content areas.
Overall, good for someone who hasn't thought about A = 1/2*b*h in a looooooong time.
4.0 out of 5 starsGood Explanations, Light on Practice Problems
Reviewed in the United States on 14 December 2016
This has great explanations of each concept covered, starting with quite basic elementary math. It does move very quickly, and each chapter covers a ton. One would do well to have access to the internet for practice problems as there are not many in the book (given how much is covered there isn't room to practice it all adequately with just one book).
I like this book for review of what one should be able to do by the end of high school. It is basic, but good review and good explanations.
This well organized book will most certainly improve your command of math and up your test score. It is a serious workbook. If you are looking for a solid refresher this is it. It is direct and succinct. There are not silly feel good bits,But if you put your nose to the grindstone, it will pay off. I personally liked the no nonsense delivery and the opportunity to practice. Good book.

This is a good GMAT math test prep book. It has lots of practice test questions and offers some good pointers and explanations as to why certain answers are correct.
