Caryl Lorandini  All books by this author Barron’s EZ Series  All books in this series Known for many years as Barron’s Easy Way Series, the new editions of these popular selfteaching titles are now Barron’s EZ Series. Brandnew cover designs reflect all new page layouts, which feature extensive twocolor 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 EZ books are selfhelp 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 college101 standards. Although primarily designed as selfteaching manuals, these books are also preferred by many teachers as classroom supplements—and for some courses, as main textbooks. EZ 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 EZ PreAlgebra 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. Table of Contents:
From the Reviews: “Looking for a comprehensive prealgebra 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 selfteaching manual, it could also be incorporated into a mathematics program as a standalone 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 —Mathematics Teacher (1438000111) Paperback / 304 Pages / 7 13/16 x 10 / 2012
