About This Book
Whether an individual is checking it out at the supermarket or cashing it in at the stock market, one needs a command of basic math to survive in today's number crunching world.
But most people have problems with math. A decimal here and an exponent there and they've gone from a balanced checkbook to a multi-trillion-dollar national debt. That's why The Princeton Review created Math Smart.
Math Smart's approach is easy to follow. It will show readers how to perform basic math operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Once they've got that down, The Princeton Review will teach them how to handle the scary stuff like exponents, square roots, geometry, and algebra.
How does Math Smart work? It teaches user-friendly techniques that break down complicated problems and equations into their basic parts. Readers won't waste their time memorizing dozens of long formulas and equations.
