With a ``learn-by-doing'' approach, it reviews and teaches elementary and some intermediate algebra. While rigorous enough to be used as a college or high school text, the format is reader friendly, particularly in this Second Edition, and clear enough to be used for self-study in a non-classroom environment. ``Pre-test'' material enables readers to target problem areas quickly and skip areas that are already well understood. Some new material has been added to the Second Edition and redundant or confusing material omitted. The first chapter has undergone major revision. Chapters feature ``post-tests'' for self-evaluation. Thousands of practice problems, questions and answers make this algebra review a unique and practical text.

PETER SELBY (deceased) was Director of Educational Technology atMan Factors Associates, a human factors engineering consultingfirm. He is the author of two other self-teaching guides: QuickAlgebra Review: A Self-Teaching Guide and Geometry and Trigonometryfor Calculus: A Self-Teaching Guide, both published by Wiley.

STEVE SLAVIN, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Economics at UnionCounty College, Cranford, New Jersey. He has written over 300newspaper and magazine articles, and is the author of four otherbooks, including All the Math You ll Ever Need: A Self-TeachingGuide and Economics: A Self-Teaching Guide, both published byWiley.
