About the Author
Bob Miller -- Author, Teacher, and Renowned Mathematician Bob Miller received his B.S. in the Unified Honors Program sponsored by the Ford Foundation and his M.S. in math from Polytechnic University. After the first class he taught (as a substitute for a full-time professor), he overheard one student say to another, "At least we have someone who can teach the stuff." From that moment on, he was hooked on teaching. Since then, Bob has taught at virtually every educational level, and has brought his math skills to classrooms at C.U.N.Y., Westfield State College, Rutgers, and Poly. Bob says, "I always feel great when students tell me they used to hate math or couldn't do math and now they like it more and can do it better." Bob considers teaching to be exceptionally rewarding, and he has broadened his teaching horizons to include math students beyond the classroom. His math test preps are specifically written in a fun and easy-to-follow style that students embrace. Bob says his goal as an author, teacher, and mathematician is to help students understand math so they can get the scores they need to excel on the TABE. With his numerous success stories, best-selling test preps, and over 30 years of experience, Bob has proven that his teaching methods get results!
