Whether you're checking out at the supermarket or cashing in at the stock market, you need 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 you'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. We'll show you how to perform basic math operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Once you've got that down, Math Smart will teach you how to handle the scary stuff like exponents, square roots, geometry, and algebra. How does Math Smart work? It teaches you user-friendly techniques that break down complicated problems and equations into their basic parts. You won't waste your time memorizing dozens of long formulas and equations. We don't promise you'll love math, but after reading Math Smart, you'll never be crunched by numbers again.Lerner, Marcia is the author of 'Math Smart Getting a Grip on Basic Math', published 2001 under ISBN 9780375762161 and ISBN 0375762167.
