These changed my life. Seriously.

I’m a 50 year old woman, who always defined myself as “NOT” a math person. At 40, I got divorced and returned to school. I hadn’t taken a math course in over 20 years, and 20 years ago I used my fingers- I SUCKED at math. I was pursuing my nursing degree and as my entrance scores sucked, I was going to have to take FOUR MATH COURSES TO APPLY FOR THE NURSING PROGRAM.
I’m a single mom with a very real timeline, and I almost lost hope.
My sister recommended these, having heard about them. I bought math doesn’t suck, middle school math and algebra exposed. In between semesters, I had a TWO WEEK PERIOD and worked these books every chance I got. I did every problem until I understood, then moved on to the next book. I retook the entrance exam and tested into college algebra. I was on track to finish in time. I finished with college stats and got an a.
I worked hard. Worked these books, laughed at the absurdity of the many lipgloss/boy tips, but smiled because I was finally understanding.
I’m a nurse today because of these books. Run, don’t walk to get them.
