    I love this book. I am reviewing statistics for various reasons and the is just one of the best books I have ever read. I love math/statistics, so it's a good read for me, but these books just make math learning so easy.

    College Math made easy

    This review is for Life of Fred College Math Series
    I bought this set for my son almost 2 years ago. He is currently going to Boise State and majoring in math. Life of Fred has made it so that all of his college level math classes are basically review. He is now taking them to earn the official credit, but says they are very easy because of Life of Fred. He would have been able to skip several math classes, but they are required for his major (Applied Math, thanks to the love of math that came from Life of Fred--- Life of Fred has been his primary math program since Fractions). Thanks for another GREAT set of books!!!!!

    My children enjoyed the Life of Fred series from early grade school through high school. I bought this upper level book for my daughter who is studying for her Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics. She loves it! Just like the earlier Life of Fred series, she can't put the book down. Way to go Fred!

    Calculus made practical and applicable to life

    This review is for Life of Fred College Math Series
    We have enjoyed the elementary and intermediate math series by Life of Fred, and though we don't have any children at the calculus age, we decided to buy it and see what it was like. I would have loved to learn Calculus this way! I struggled with Calculus because it felt so theoretical, but Life of Fred helps make practical application of very difficult material. I am looking forward to using it when our children are ready. Meanwhile, mom and dad are enjoying the refresher with, perhaps, more learning than the first time around.
