and transformations)

I have looked at several review books and text books. They all seem to approach the information in a different manor.
Would you happen to know if the following books cover the information I need to prepare for the examine?:
Teach Yourself Visually Algebra by David Alan Herzog
Effortless Algebra by Maran
If these books are not adequate would you happen to know of a book that is?

When I was still teaching senior highschool math in Ontario, I had a small library of reference and review texts for my students.
A popular one, and there are several in the series, is the Schaum Outline set of books (Google "Schaum outlines")
The books have lots of examples and lots of complete solutions.
This one was a wellused one
