<p><i>Algebra II Essentials For Dummies</i> (9781119590873) was previously published as<i>Algebra II Essentials For Dummies</i>(9780470618400). While this version features a new<i>Dummies</i> cover and design, the content is the same as the prior release and should not be considered a new or updated product.</p><p>Passing grades in two years of algebra courses are required for high school graduation.<i>Algebra II Essentials For Dummies</i> covers key ideas from typical second-year Algebra coursework to help students get up to speed. Free of ramp-up material,<i>Algebra II Essentials For Dummies</i> sticks to the point, with content focused on key topics only. It provides discrete explanations of critical concepts taught in a typical Algebra II course, from polynomials, conics, and systems of equations to rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. This guide is also a perfect reference for parents who need to review critical algebra concepts as they help students with homework assignments, as well as for adult learners headed back into the classroom who just need a refresher of the core concepts.</p><p><b><i>The Essentials For Dummies</i> Series</b><br />Dummies is proud to present our new series,<i>The Essentials For Dummies</i>. Now students who are prepping for exams, preparing to study new material, or who just need a refresher can have a concise, easy-to-understand review guide that covers an entire course by concentrating solely on the most important concepts. From algebra and chemistry to grammar and Spanish, our expert authors focus on the skills students most need to succeed in a subject.</p>
