Particularity at the beginning or end of a semester, we will have students looking for help with the Accuplacer test or algebra.  The library has a few books, such as an Accuplacer study guide and Algebra for Dummies, avaliable for check out.  But if you’re at home and can’t come to the library?  Or you still feel confused despite the book?
