I am not sure where to post this so sorry if I posted in the wrong forum.
But my question is I took algebra 1 and 2 at high school but I forgot most it and my level of understanding in math is probably at the arithmetic level. Can anyone recommend me a good book for learning Algebra one for self study because I want to teach myself.

Now, if you cannot for some reason use the Khan Academy website, I'm not sure of any books for PreAlgebra. Any book that looks "decent" should be okay, actually. If you feel like you're past prealgebra after skimming through a book or two, then move on to Algebra I and II topics. Sullivan's Algebra & Trigonometry is the book I used to review basic algebra I and start moving towards Algebra II & Trig topics. This will take you through Algebra II and Trig, if you finish the (rather large) book, which can be found rather cheap on amazon used. That should get you to where you want to be, I hope this has been of some help to you, coming from someone who just recently has finished these topics :)

You might try borrowing a copy of "Forgotten Algebra" from your library and try to do every problem in the book as fast as you can go and then do it all over again. That book was specifically written for people who knew this once and have forgotten it. Hopefully you will be surprised when you begin to remember this stuff.
