    Terrible instruction

    This book provides TERRIBLE instruction. The attractiveness of it was the "no fluff" approach. Unfortunately, the lessons were TOO quick, and there was never any explanation of real-world application for the concepts. Frequently the lessons would provide examples that correlated to the first few practice problems, but then by the latter half of each practice set, there would be no correlating examples or explanations and we were stuck. While answers are provided, there are no solution steps available to show how the answers are arrived at. As a parent who is not good at Algebra, this was awful. I emailed Rick Fisher personally and his response was, "you don't need solution steps; you just must not be watching the lesson enough. Go and watch it again and you will get it." That didn't happen.

    The results were constant stress, we ended up switching curriculum mid-stream, we were still working on algebra well into July, and when my son took a placement test to get into a Geometry class at our co-op, he FAILED all of the algebra portions.

    At best this book might provide a little review and practice problems for a student who is using a REAL textbook to learn algebra.

    After much struggling this year and using another product for Math. I was at the end of my rope when I happened to come across" No Nonsense Algebra" I did some research and decided to give it a try. The price had some bearing on my decision because I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars and end up still struggling and frustrated. I have to say I am very happy with "No Nonsense Algebra" I no longer hear, This is stupid, why do i have to do this and the ever popular I will never use this.... The video Tutorial for every lesson is exactly what we needed. He teaches it in a way that is "No Nonsense"! I recommend this product to anyone who is is doing Algebra.
