Hi All, I am in need of help on side-side-side similarity, percentages, unlike denominators and exponential equations. Since I am a newbie to College Algebra, I really want to learn the bedrocks of Algebra 1 fully . Can anyone suggest the best resource with which I can start learning the fundamental principles ? I have an exam next week.

Youâ€™re not alone. In fact, I had the same problem just before I found something very cool. Have you encountered Algebrator? If you have not heard anything about this wonderful piece of program yet, let me give you an idea about this software. This is a software that helps you to solve algebra problems and at the same time you could learn from it because it displays a detailed procedure of answering the problem. It really helped me in my problems in math and my grade significantly improved since I used this. Be reminded that it does not only display the answer but it helps you learn how to solve the problem that makes it very educational.

It is good to know that you wish to improve your math and are taking efforts to do so. I think you should try Algebrator. This is not exactly a tutoring tool but it offers solutions to math problems in a very descriptive manner. And the best thing about this product is that it is very user friendly. There are a lot of examples given under various topics which are quite useful to learn the subject. Try it and wish you good luck with math.

I remember having problems with least common denominator, radicals and factoring. Algebrator is a truly great piece of algebra software. I have used it through several algebra classes - Intermediate algebra, Pre Algebra and Basic Math. I would simply type in the problem from a workbook and by clicking on Solve, step by step solution would appear. The program is highly recommended.
