Description

Higher Algebra by Hall and Knight is a book that gives excellent coverage on algebra and is a good aid for aspirants looking to crack competitive examinations.

Summary Of The Book

Higher Algebra is a useful guide for those wanting to take up competitive exams. It scores in the fact that its approach is orderly and covers topics ranging from simple to complex. This book is a sequel to Elementary Algebra, a book co-authored by Hall and Knight.

The content is fairly easy to understand because of the solved examples included. The results have been arranged and organised in points to make them easy to comprehend. The complexity of concepts increases in an ascending manner, from the easier ones covered in the chapters at the beginning, to the more difficult ones discussed in subsequent chapters.

Higher Algebra contains 30 chapters. It begins with chapters like Ratio, Proportion, and Variation. Other chapters covered are Quadratic Equations and Expressions, Arithmetical Progression, Geometric Progression, Permutations and Combinations, Mathematical Induction, Partial Fractions, Probability, and Determinants.

The language of the book is also simple and the level of questions is good for competitive exams. The difficulty level of the questions increases gradually and the subjective problems that are given at the end are especially helpful as well as challenging.

Higher Algebra covers problems that are very similar in type to questions that appear in the JEE. This makes it a good recommendation for those aspiring to get placed in one of the prestigious IIT campuses around India. Readers need to have some preliminary knowledge of the subject to refer to Higher Algebra.

Awesome coverage

The book provides great coverage on algebra and is good for examinations like JEE and SAT Subject Test.

An OK Book

If you are a beginner to the senior secondary school, a copy of this will get you through most of the basic concepts-- but after that, if you're relying on the exercises for a test-you're doomed. The book is great for basic theory but presents a bare handful of quite easy problems.Not an ideal revision book.

Good but not the best !

Well,any coaching class faculty will rate this book high and it is always in the list of recommended books for INMO,IIT-JEE etc.
The book covers higher algebra extensively.It has almost 35 chapters.Many topics found in this book are not needed for 10+2 level entrance exams but will benefit one's knowledge bank.
However one thing this book lacks is explanations.Most of the matter is structured in the form of articles and examples.Also many connected topics have been distributed over many chapt...

A good book but.............

A very good book for the beginners but many chapters are not required. Good to clear your understanding and concept. But in my opinion NCERT. text book is equally good if not better. Choice is yours'. If you are expecting to appear in JEE. main or advance then this book is not for you. If you want to increase your marks at + 2 final examination then you can try this book.
