# Good book for high school algebra

I'm gonna take a Calculus course next year, my professor suggest me to review high school algebra. I want to know, which book is good for refresh knowledge on high school algebra?

This book, by Israel Gelfand, is perhaps the best book on high school algebra I have ever seen. Written by a leading mathematician, it is short, clear, and concise, yet provides a depth of understanding that you cannot find in many other books on the subject.

Gelfand was a giant. Definitely have a look at this!!! –  Jon Bannon Feb 25 '11 at 21:09
• $\text{Higher Algebra}$ by $\text{Hall and Knight}$ is also a good book and has good deal of high school algebra.

• You might also want to look at S.L.Loney's $\text{ Plane Trigonometry}$. Since you are going to learn $\text{Calculus}$ it might be important that you know some Trigonometry.
