Description

CliffsQuickReview course guides cover the essentials of your toughest classes. Get a firm grip on core concepts and key material, and test your newfound knowledge with review questions.

From planes, points, and postulates to squares, spheres, and slopes — and everything in between — CliffsQuickReview Geometry can help you make sense of it all. This guide introduces each topic, defines key terms, and walks you through each sample problem step-by-step. Begin with a review of fundamental ideas such as theorems, angles, and intersecting lines. In no time, you'll be ready to work on other concepts such as

  • Triangles and polygons: Classifying and identifying; features and properties; the Triangle Inequality Theorem; the Midpoint Theorem; and more
  • Perimeter and area: Parallelograms, trapezoids, regular polygons, circles
  • Similarity: Ratio and proportion; properties of proportions; similar triangles
  • Right triangles
  • Circles: Central angles and arcs; inscribed angles; chords, secants, tangents; arc length, sectors
  • Geometric solids and coordinate geometry
