More About College Prep Math Workbook by M. J. Sanders
Contents: A workbook containing 30 days of basic review exercises in preparation for college mathematics. Each daily section contains a short exercise set covering basic skills necessary to perform well in an introductory college math course. Focus has been placed on those skills which are difficult to retain without continued practice. The exercise collection in Part I is designed for skill enhancement in mathematics skills such as factoring, solving equations, understanding and using function notation, working with exponents and radicals, etc. Rather than being all-inclusive, the work strives to provide continued practice in the most fundamental skills necessary for successful college work. Daily work notes are provided in Part II that speak directly to the pertinent aspects of each day's exercise set. Brief and to the point, with examples when needed for clarity, these work notes add an extra dimension to help students stay on track and progress through the exercise sets. Part III contains a complete answer set. College students and their parents frequently discover that lack of college mathematical readiness requires an extra semester or even a year of college in order to earn a desired degree. A trend at colleges to attempt to remedy this situation is to offer on-campus "summer bridge" or "math boot camp" programs for entering students to alleviate this shortcoming. While effective, these programs are time-consuming and prohibitively costly for many students. In a similarly-designed approach, this workbook provides a cost-effective, self-study method to help students to stay current in mathematics and be prepared to "hit the ground running" when entering college. It is a worthy approach to help you or your child realize a successful start to a college career.
