It is summer but it is never too early to get a head start on the subjects that can be the most difficult for students. Math and Chemistry can be some of the most difficult topics to master. Homework Helpers are books designed to assist both parents and students in these subjects.

The easy to understand text makes mastering these concepts much simplier when used as a study guide or as a compliment to other classroom texts.

Parents will find that both the Math and Chemistry books are relevant to daily life. They will be able to read and understand the subjects from a different view point than when a student themselves making it easier to help their child master those same subjects.

Students will be able to get a better grip on the concepts because the chapters in both books are broken down into easily understood sections that build upon each other. These chapters will make it easier to understand the more complex textbooks that most classrooms contain.

College prep students will find both of these books as wonderful reviews for the subjects in preparation to test out of a subject or as a way to be prepared to take more advanced courses.

As a nurse I appreciated both books as a good resource for drug calculations, laboratory results that include chemistry, and for understanding concepts that I don't use everyday. I think that readers will find these books an excellent resource as well as study material and I recommend them for high school students, college students, and parents. Homework helpers do just that...they really do help the reader understand a complex subject and turn it into a great learning experience.

Start this summer doing a review with these books and keep them on hand when school starts to ace exams the next school year.
