The book was in good condition, as stated by the seller. I looked through it and it seems to be just what I need to help me brush up on the "basics" before I go ahead with an advanced Math class later this year. Thank you!

61 and taking a Career Readiness class that includes basic math. This book helped me to score in the highest level. Easy to understand, even for a silver hair who embraced her Texas Instruments Calculator decades ago and never let go!
