Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Great! When I was little, the word problem had been very hard for me. I had to practice a lot and finally I became good at it. After almost 30 years, I found this book and bought it for my daughter. When I read it, I wish I had it 30 years ago. The way the author explained in the book is so helpful and clear. The steps help a lot when solving prolbems. Don't skip any of the steps when you solve your prolbem. Btw, my daughter is going to grade 7.
