Algebra II can be a tough nut to crack when you first meet it. But with the right tools...well, she's still tough but she gets a heckuva lot easier to manage. In Algebra II All-in-One For Dummies you'll find your very own step-by-step roadmap to solving even the most challenging Algebra II problems, from conics and systems of equations to exponential and logarithmic functions.

In the book, you'll discover the ins and outs of function transformation and evaluation, work out your brain with complex and imaginary numbers, and apply formulas from statistics and probability theory. You'll also find:
* Accessible and practical lessons and practice for second year high-school or university algebra students
* End-of-chapter quizzes that help you learn - and remember! - key algebraic concepts, such as quadratic equations, graphing techniques, and matrices
* One-year access to additional chapter quizzes online, where you can track your progress and get real-time feedback!

Your own personal mathematical toolbox for some of the most useful and foundational math you'll learn in school, this Algebra II All-in-One For Dummies combines hands-on techniques, methods, and strategies from a variety of sources into one, can't-miss reference.
