A math review or reference book for adults & students

I just stumbled upon the book Math on Call: A Mathematics Handbook:

Based on the reviews and from the "Look Inside" feature at Amazon it looks like a GREAT math reference book. I've been on the lookout for something like this, because I get emails from adults who want to review or refresh their basic math before going to college or some other course they're taking. So now I have something to refer them to.

The table of contents includes these chapters:

  • Rational Numbers
  • Irrational Numbers

  • Equations
  • Inequalities

  • Organizing and Summarizing Data with Statistics
  • Displaying Data in Tables and Graphs
  • Interpreting Data

GEOMETRY

  • Elements of Geometric Figures
  • Angles
  • Plane Figures
  • Solid Figures

RATIO, PROPORTION, AND PERCENT

  • Ratio
  • Proportion
  • Percent

PROBABILITY AND ODDS

  • Permutations and Combinations
  • Probability
  • Odds

ALMANAC

  • Prefixes
  • Suffixes
  • Problem Solving
  • Study Tips
  • Using a Computer for Math
  • Geometric Constructions
  • Test-Taking Skills
  • Handy Tables
    • The Metric System
    • The Customary System
    • General Measurement
    • Fraction/Decimal Equivalents
    • Multiplication Table

    • Mathematical Symbols
  • Number Patterns
  • Number Systems

YELLOW PAGES

  • Glossary of Mathematical Formulas
  • Glossary of Mathematical Terms

INDEX

A total of 608 pages. I can hardly believe how good reviews it has!

I was unclear if Math on Call contained exercises or not, but I'm thinking not, since I didn't see anyone mentioning such in the reviews or the description.
