Comments

Apropos #16, I delurk from the woodwork to say thank you for introducing me to the Selby/Slavin collection of Self-Teaching Guides. I will be taking placement exams shortly that require me to demonstrate maths I haven't used in Many Many Moons, and these have proven to be extremely helpful review. If you hadn't mentioned them, I would have had no idea where to start. The library contains many books designed to help one learn math, but few are designed to be used independent of other instruction.

And since I'm here, I will also thank you for the fascinating things you write, including this blog.
Yay! Glad to be of use, and yes, they're really wonderful.
