It's been several years since I've had any math instruction. Before college, I had aced all of my math classes, and during all of college, I only took two calculus courses in my freshman year, both of which I've entirely forgotten. Actually, I think it's safe to say I've forgotten any structured form of math.
I've recently made the decision to pursue a different career path and go to graduate school, but I wanted to get some recommendations as to where I could quickly relearn math to prepare for (1) the GRE math portion, and (2) math for programming.
I'm the type of person to make sure I got my bases down first before I get rolling, so I'm looking to make sure I still got all my basic math down. I'm probably going to take some community college courses for the calculus portion, but I really don't want to spend more than a month for all the high school math stuff (algebra, geometry, trigonometry).
So I'm looking for a resource, preferably a single book, that would help relearn all of high school math in a very concise and simple manner. Something like a 1-2 paragraph explanation, 2-3 examples, and 5-10 practice questions per concept. Something that can be looked at and finished within a few weeks.
