Intro Math For Dummies? Geometry and Trig self-study tips please

  1. May 3, 2016 #1
    I am planning on doing a huge self-studying over geometry and hopefully a little bit a trigonometry session over the summer at my public library. Over at a friends house, I see that he has a book about "algebra 2 for dummies" in his pile of science books and it got me wondering, are the "For Dummies" book series a good way to learn math?

    The short answer is "it depends".
    What you need is a book designed to be a course rather than as a primer ... or just do one of the courses online.
