This major revision prepares students to succeed on the New York State Math A Regents Exam as it is now given. The book places increased emphasis on use of the graphing calculator, and in line with New York State Regents core curriculum, it shows how given problems can be solved in several different ways. The author also includes new Regents question types dealing, for instance, with motion problems and mathematical systems defined by tables. New contextualized word problems further enhance the presentation. The totally rewritten chapter on problem-solving offers students a core set of strategies that apply to a variety of curriculum-related exercises. In addition to subject review, demonstration examples, and practice exercises with answers, the book includes several complete recent Math A Regents exams with answers.

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.
