Lawrence S. Leff has helped make mathematics and tests more accessible to students through his work and his writing. Leff is assistant principal and math supervisor at Franklin D. Roosevelt High School in Brooklyn, New York. His writing is centered primarily on examination preparation guides. His books, which target high school students, have included, Let's Review: Sequential Mathematics, a teacher planning and student review and math test preparation guide, and Preparation for the CLEP--College-Level Examination Program. Some of Leff's math review guides originally were intended for New York area high school students participating in the three-year mathematics curriculum there. Lawrence Leff has also published mathematics materials not strictly for test-taking, including Geometry the Easy Way.
