With this in mind, I was hoping someone could help me find some higher-level supplementary material to aid my math studies. I want to ultimately gain a good understanding of geometry, Alg II, Trig, pre-calc, plus maybe something extra and then be ready for a calculus class by 10th grade. (I know this is difficult but I am serious about self-studying) The only book on my reading list so far is Basic Mathematics by Serge Lang, and I am looking of more like that.

I'm also looking for some workbooks with just a lot of problems. I'm seriously dying from the lack of practice problems I can complete in my textbooks. In my Algebra I one there's a great section called "extra practice" which is peachy and all but there aren't any answers in the back of the book! Why would I do extra practice if I can't check my work, if I make a stupid mistake I have no way of knowing... I learn by looking back at my answers and catching myself on what I did wrong. I'm seriously surprised at the lack of such books, on Amazon I've only found one called "The Humongous Book of Algebra Problems" which has the frustrating format of giving the problem and then immediately giving the answer underneath it. I know in Russian you can find a dozen of such books on every topic, problems in front, then answers at back of the book. (I can read Russian but not too well, yes I know numbers are the same but it does matter when it will give certain directions, I'd get confused on what it's asking.) Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place?

tl;dr version

1. Math books that cover the things school textbooks do + going deeper to gain better understanding (subjects on alg I,II; geometry, trig, precalc)

2. Math practice books for the above topics with a format similar to a bunch of problems listed and then answers in the back of the book.

Also, my school textbooks are "Holt, Rinehard and Winston" around 2007 edition.

Also also, sorry if a thread with such books has been posted before, I haven't found much with the search function
