Let's face it. Math textbooks are not published out of the goodness of people's hearts. They're published because most of the individuals who write them will get fired from their jobs as college professors if they don't publish a textbook every now and then. As a result, most study guides are a reflection of their authors - dry and difficult.

The Humongous Book of Algebra Problems book is an exception to that rule. Following in the footsteps of the successful The Humongous Books of Calculus Problems , best-selling math book author W. Michael Kelley has taken what appears to be a typical algebra workbook, chock full of solved problems, and made notes in the margins, adding missing steps and simplifying concepts and solutions. And voilà! What would be baffling to students is made perfectly clear. It's as if a best friend - who just happens to be an algebra wiz - got hold of an algebra workbook and illuminated everything students find confusing! He was even kind enough to write legibly! No longer will befuddled students cry out in frustration, 'Where the %#*! did that number come from?' And by learning how to interpret and solve problems as they are typically presented in algebra courses, students will become fully prepared to solve those difficult, obscure problems that were never discussed in class but always seem to find their way onto exams.
