### 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.

### YELLOW PAGES

### 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.
