Barron's E-Z Series - All books in this series
Known for many years as Barron’s Easy Way Series, the new editions of these popular self-teaching titles are now Barron’s E-Z Series. Brand-new cover designs reflect all new page layouts, which feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever— charts, graphs, diagrams, instructive line illustrations, and where appropriate, amusing cartoons. Meanwhile, the quality of the books’ contents remains at least as high as ever. Barron’s E-Z books are self-help manuals focused to improve students’ grades in a wide variety of academic and practical subjects. For most subjects, the level of difficulty ranges between high school and college-101 standards. Although primarily designed as self-teaching manuals, these books are also preferred by many teachers as classroom supplements—and for some courses, as main textbooks. E-Z books review their subjects in detail, and feature both short quizzes and longer tests with answers to help students gauge their learning progress. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color as an easy reference aid.
The authors of Barron’s E-Z Pre-Algebra present everything students need to prepare themselves for an algebra class. Separate chapters focus on fractions, integers, ratios, proportions, expressions, equations, inequalities, graphing, statistics and probability basics, word problems, and more. Review questions and chapter reviews all have answers.

From the Reviews:
“Looking for a comprehensive pre-algebra review? Then this may be just the book you want. It builds the foundation of mathematics and geometry through eighteen chapters of mathematical knowledge needed to understand the language of math. Although this book is meant as a self-teaching manual, it could also be incorporated into a mathematics program as a stand-alone text or as a review for students enrolling in a high school or college algebra course. A notable feature of the book is its flexibility. It provides helpful preparation for anyone planning to take an algebra course.” Recommended
