Arithmetic Refresher: Improve your working knowledge of arithmetic Reviews
So far I love what he has in here. This is the exact type of book that helps you learn the subject by explaining it in understandable terms, not dry proofs and endless repetition. I haven't finished reading it, but it makes me want to order all of the author's books based on this one alone. I really like it.
I haven't read it all just yet it's a bit technical, but informative
good refresher for speed employment testing
This took me back to my grammar school days. In the fourth grade I learned to check my calculations by casting nine's; this book shows you how to cast eleven's.
helped me to teach some older adults simply where they could understand.
Do not like the Q&A approach.
Only the odd number answers are available. The even number answers are NOT included.
I love Dover books, and this book, published in 1964, seemed like it would be a promising and fun Q&A approach to many different problems
