Secondary school math teachers in several states are required to successfully pass state exams in Algebra. Often, these exams require a wide spectrum of knowledge ranging from high school Algebra to Abstract Algebra. The book, Advanced Algebra for Teachers, is uniquely designed to cover this variety of topics in a user friendly manner. It is currently used by secondary school teachers in California who are training for the Algebra subtest of the CSET exam, but the text should be ideally suited for schoolteachers nationwide hoping to acquire a similar body of knowledge. The topics are presented through worked out examples, in the simplest language possible. Consequently these concepts can be introduced to readers who may not be the traditional audience for this type of content. Another salient feature of the book is that the examples and exercise sets cover skill levels from basic concepts to more difficult problems gently exposing the reader to the intensity present in most certification exams. In more practical terms, the text assists the practicing teacher with a critical overview of a comprehensive algebra curricular from basic algebra to abstract algebra.
