"Dr. Yaqoob has years of tutoring experience and it shows. He takes math-concerned parents by the hand and shows them how they can help their child with math. Concepts that parents never quite `got' or barely remember are grist to the mill. Practical help for the parent with no time!"
-Prof. Barry McKernan (former student), City University of New York (CUNY), and American Museum of Natural History, New York, USA.
“Stating that helping doesn't mean knowing all the answers yourself, Tahir Yaqoob offers simple advice to help their children grasp their homework at any level, whether it be long division or calculus. "What Can I Do" is a worthy consideration for any parent seeking ways to help their children succeed in school.”
-Midwest Book Review
"Given the title of this book, one wouldn't perhaps expect an enjoyable read. However, Dr Yaqoob manages to write in a humourous and down-to-earth style whilst still imparting highly useful advice and mathematical know-how."
Amazon (UK) reviewer (Ceki2474)
"The plain English used in the book is great for those of us who are intimidated by a subject that was never our strongest.
Yaqoob is the teacher we all should have had."
Amazon (US) reviewer (John)
"I have to agree with other reviewers that older children and teachers would also benefit from reading and absorbing the information given.
Although the book is written for the American market, it translates easily into 'UK speak' and the language of maths (in the crib sheet section of the second half) is universal."
Amazon (UK) reviewer (ali2011)
