   I Explained the "Dummies" title.
I recently purchased this book for my 15-year-old daughter, who has problems with geometry. When she told me this, I thought immediately of this book because I have one for Windows xp. I explained to her that it did not mean that she was dumb, because she is not, and that the only Dummie is the one who does not look for help. She passes it so she has a test! I have told her that she is not yet out of the woods, so keep it up. That is why I give it 5 stars. It supports my daughter that I love so much.
I wanted to keep the math juices flowing again afer almost ten years since graduatuaed from college, Jus for the heck of it. I found this book to be a great resource because it is filled with formulas and writers that are written in an easy to understand way, which makes the questions and work assignments much less frustrating. I recommend this book for Ay one like me who wants to be a Nerd and do Math for Fun or for the Durrent geometry student who might have a difficult time absorbing the information.

She retook it in the summer school with this as a guide and she passed with flying colors!
   Worth it. Better than any Math teacher i ever had
A blessing for someone like myself, who has not passed geometry. Easy to read and simple to add to my study schedule.
