Math You Can REALLY Use


'Everyday Math Demystified' I haven't studied math in many years, and I wanted to freshen up my skills. I was never a math wiz, but I am certainly competent at the basics. When you get beyond the basics, my brain starts hurting a bit. This eBook made my brain hurt. The Title is deceiving. "This is everyday math?!" The information in this book is presented so badly that you pretty much need to be a mathematician to read it (in which case you probably do not need this book). I rarely write negative things in my blogs but this has to be said! With that said I am going to recommend 'Math You Can Really Use - Every Day.' By David Alan Herzog. This is a handy little book on the basics of rounding, rational, irrational, prime numbers and equivalent fractions. Some important geometry is explained for the layperson. The book is an excellent purchase for the layperson or student of business math or elementary algebra. Be sure to check below for the coupon code for a discount on these two eBooks.
