3.0 out of 5 stars There is mess ups.
Reviewed in the United States on August 3, 2018
I bought this book to help refresh my memory of basic math skills. I'm on page six and so far I have noticed careless mistakes. Twice now, the answer key has been wrong. One was because the question on the page is missing the negative sign. There has been words missing from definitions (luckily, I notice it). I don't want to judge it too hard because mistakes happen, but for someone who didn't know any of this, they might get confused. I'll share an example of the one I mentioned in this post.
