The answers to the exercises in Sets I, II, III and IV are included in the Solutions Manual. The "solutions to many of the exercises appear in brackets following the answers. These solutions vary in detail according to the complexity of the exercise. For exercises that can be solved in a variety of ways, just one solution is given."

Test
Elementary Algebra Test Bank

By Harold R. Jacobs

ISBN-13: 9780716710776

The Test Bank has chapter tests, a midyear test, and a final exam. There are four versions of each chapter test, which will provide extra tests in case you need to retest.

Since there are extra tests, you could also use them as "placement" tests if you aren't sure where to start your student. Another idea is to use one of them as a pretest, in case the student has used another algebra curriculum before starting Jacobs.

The chapter tests should take about 45 minutes. Midyear and final tests should take 110 minutes.

Answers are included for all the tests, but worked solutions are not provided.

It is reproducible. The pages are perforated for removal to put in a copier.
