Review of The Concise Handbook of Algebra
Editorial review
The Concise Handbook of Algebra provides a succinct, but thorough
treatment of algebra. The editors have gone to great lengths
to capture the core essence of the different ideas, concepts
and results that make up algebra as we know it today. In a collection
that spans about 150 sections organized in 9 chapters, algebraists
are provided with a standard knowledge set for their areas of
expertise. Other readers meanwhile, are equipped with a quick
and dependable reference to the area as a whole. All of this
is presented uniformally with crossreferences linking the sections.
The target audience consists of anyone interested in algebra,
from graduate students to established researchers, including
those who want to obtain a quick overview or a better understanding
of the selected topics.
Review of Practical Algebra
Editorial review
Here's a selfteaching refresher course for students going on
to higher math courses, or for those who need a brushup before
taking such tests as SAT, GRE, or GMAT. The book is filled with
problems and answers for drill and review.

I have been dreading taking a college math class for years because
I felt I had never learned algebra, and what I had learned,
I'd long since forgotten. This book has undone years of fear!
I've been working in the book for about a week and a half, and
I'm almost a third of the way through. I feel very confident
now because this stuff is acutally makes sense! Thank you, Barbara
Lee Bleau!

As an adult wanting to learn algebra again, I looked for a clear,
indepth, easy to read book, that offered many examples that
were carefully explained. Eureka! This book is wonderful, and
has really made algebra clear for me. Just wish they had a Forgotten
Geometry and Forgotten Trig! :)

I rate the book a 4, subtracting one point for the errors. The
best thing about this book is at the beginning and end of each
chapter it gives written stepbystep procedures on how to solve
the problems given. That, more than anything, really helped
me out.I have one question for Ms. Bleau: in the next edition
of this great book are you going to include an endofeachchapter
Texas Instruments TI83 calculator supplement like what is included
in "Forgotten Calculus?" I have both a T83 and a
T86. I wish the T86 would be used but I am satisfied with
the T83.Anyway, thanks for this great book. Despite the errors,
it was still well worth the money. If only you could write a
"Forgotten Trigonometry" edition. Trig, more than
Algerbra, has been a huge weakness of mine.Thanks you so much!

I am working on the third edition of Forgotten Algebra with
a publication date of 2003. In the process I am reworking all
the examples and problems. I would like the new edition to be
error free. Thus far I have found six errors. Page 288, prob

Review of Forgotten Algebra
Editorial review
This updated book is a selfteaching brushup course for students
who need more math background before taking calculus, or who
are preparing for a standardized exam such as the GRE or GMAT.
Set up as a workbook, Forgotten Algebra is divided into 31 units,
starting with signed numbers, symbols, and firstdegree equations,
and progressing to include logarithms and right triangles. Each
unit provides explanations and includes numerous examples, problems,
and exercises with detailed solutions to facilitate selfstudy.
Optional sections introduce the use of graphing calculators.
Units conclude with exercises, their answers given at the back
of the book. Systematic presentation of subject matter is easy
to follow, but contains all the algebraic information learners
need for mastery of this subject. This text refers to the
Paperback edition.
Review of Algebra, the Easy Way (3rd Ed)
Editorial review
Describes and explains uses of equations, polynomials, the binomial
formula, exponential functions, logarithms, and much more, with
exercises and answers.Over the years, Barron?s popular and widelyused
Easy Way books have proven themselves to be accessible selfteaching
manuals. They have also found their way into many classrooms
as valuable and easytouse textbook supplements. The titles
cover a wide variety of both practical and academic topics,
presenting fundamental subject matter so that it can be clearly
understood and provide a foundation for more advanced study.
Easy Way books fulfill many purposes. They help students improve
their grades, serve as good test preparation review books, and
provide readers working outside classroom settings with practical
information on subjects that relate to their occupations and
careers. All Easy Way books include review questions and minitests
with answers. All new Easy Way editions feature type in twocolors,
the second color used to highlight important study points and
topic heads. This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This is a book with good things and bad things. When I was 11
I had to get this book for school. I was learning algebra, but
sometimes the story would get me mixed up, so that I had to
read the same part a bunch of times. The story is neat and makes
learning algebra a little more fun, but it might be good to
expect thet you might not understand the story, and just focus
on learning math.

My oldest child has begun to study algebra in school. Algebra,
the Easy Way is a wonderful addition to her classroom studies.
This book's approach explains the whys of algebra. It takes
students beyond the "just memorize" it way of learning
alegebra. To use this book effectively, I strongly suggest readers
do some of the problems at the end of each chapter. You'll find
the answers in the back of the book. Students who complete this
book will be well on their way to being able to use algebra.
My younger children have taken an interest in the book, too.
The book's story approach has sparked their interest. Because
of their young ages, they are moving more slowly through the
book than the older child. Nonetheless, the book's approach
has made algebra seem like a very natural idea to them. I highly
recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in beginning
the study of algebra.

This book didnt get straight to the point. Not a good book if
you need quick help. This book is geared towards younger teens
but seems like its geared more towards preteens.

If you have (or are) that extra smart young kid, who always
seems to be a grade (year) or two ahead of his/her class in
maths, this book is certainly going to be perfect for him/her
(as it was for me). This was the book that got me interested
in Algebra. Downing takes the reader on an adventure, explaining
the basics of algebra through a story, and progressing almost
to the very apex of general algebra. (He doesn't cover every
single aspect of general algebra  I recall one example: Synthetic
Division, there are others.) But for a child, who's ahead of
the rest, you don't need to have everything just yet.This book
certainly won't appeal to adults or older teens (who will easily
get bored and turned off by the underlying story), but it was
a great introduction for me when I was just turning the decade
mark. It really helps you to understand Algebra as more than
a bunch of things to memorise; it makes you see applications
in every aspect of life. Once you (or your child) have finished
this book, you'll be thirsting for more, and that's when you
move on to a more traditional textbook to fill in the "blanks".
After that, algebra will be running through your veins. With
this solid foundation, trigonometry and calculus will be much
easier.(The author also wrote similar books on Trigonometry
and Calculus. The Calculus book was quite poor because the story
began to intrude on explaining the concepts properly. [By the
time you are ready to take calculus on, you should use a traditional
textbook  like Anton or Thomas.] The trigonometry book was
quite good, but I feel none can match the brilliance of this
book.)

Review of S.G. College Algebra 3e

Writing for graduate students and research mathematicians, the
author introduces and studies the construction of the crossed
product of a von Neumann algebra by an equivalence relation
on X with countable cosets. Properties of the construction are
proved in the general case. In addition, the generalizations
of the Spectral Theorem on Bimodules and of the theorem on dilations
are proved. No Index. Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR

This book describes the recent development in the structure
theory of von Neumann algebras and their automorphism groups.
It can be viewed as a guided tour to the state of the art.
