I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
B. de Heron
I bought this book for myself, hoping to refresh my memory, so I could help my 11-year-old with his middle school homework. I loved the simple language and told my son to look through a few pages to see what he thought. There’s something fairly awesome about handing your kid an algebra textbook in the middle of the summer and having him sit with it for over an hour muttering things like, “This is SO COOL!” He likes it so much he wants to take it with us on vacation.
The Best Algebra teaching guide yet!

After searching for over a year, I finally found the book that helps me and my son understand algebra. I have never in my entire life gotten higher than a C- in algebra and got plenty of fails, but with this book I completely understand the concept AND can explain it to my son so that he gets the correct conclusions. He works with it on his own without getting frustrated like he was with the other books. It is a fun and slow paced book with just enough to practice on before you move to the worksheets. I am glad I purchased this book.
A great choice!

My 7th grade daughter is struggling with pre-algebra and I couldn’t remember a thing to help her. I ordered the Survival Guide and Workbook and they are both fun! My 12 year old works out of this book on her own. It really is self-teaching. Each section takes you step by step through the concepts explaining in simple terms how to do the problems. I am also learning all the Algebra concepts and love the way the book is laid out. Very direct, simple, engaging & great to look at visually.
This is the formula for my problems!

I have been shopping for a good tutorial algebra book for several weeks so that I could help my struggling teenagers. I bought this book and workbook based on the customer reviews…and am I happy I did so. The book layout is easy to read with one problem per page in step-by-step detail. This is exactly what I’ve been seeking.


Highly recommend the book and workbook
I purchased the Algebra Survival guide and the workbook for my sons who would be taking Algebra in 8th grade. They easily completed the entire book over the summer. The Survival Guide is easy to understand. The Emergency Fact sheet will be a great reference. They will sail through Algebra this year. I highly recommend these books as a prelude to classroom Algebra for all students.
Good Algebra Teaching book
Good explanations of basic algebra. Used over the summer before starting Algebra with daughter and she is flying through the course this year.

We did this book over the summer with my Middle Schooler. Reinforcing concepts from the previous school year. A great teaching book.
Works best with Algebra Survival Workbook.
Great both as a supplement to Algebra I class, and as a review before Algebra II or Pre-Calc.
Clear and succinct, kids are able to work independently.
Written in easy to understand Q & A format with easy to understand examples.

Great book. Easy to follow and understand. Will be getting the workbook for my 9th grader — a great refresher for course for me
A necessary companion for the workbook. Together the workbook and guide has been a big help for my grandson with 9th grade algebra.

Perfect for my middle schooler. Explained concepts in an easy to understand manner. Was a fantastic supplement to his course book, plus allowed for extra practice at test study time.
So helpful

I bought this guide to help me help my daughter learn algebra. It’s been over 30 years since I’ve taken it and this guide helped immensely. It’s written in a way that is very easy for her to understand. Algebra is a little scary and this guide makes it a little less daunting.

My teenage daughter has really been struggling through Algebra, even though she is a straight A student in all other subjects. She had been using Danica McKellar’s series and all went well until Hot X: Algebra Exposed! My daughter just kept getting confused and frustrated until she tried Josh Rappaport’s Algebra Survival Guide. She LOVES this book! She said “it’s easy”, which means she is actually understanding the concepts now. I highly reccommend this book to ANYONE who wants/needs to learn Algebra.
