Pros

The software provided detailed solutions. I was pleasantly surprised that it was able to solve everything, including problems from the advanced curriculum. It came very handy while helping my daughter. Prompt email support.

Cons

None that I can find.

Summary

I highly recommend it to anyone who is taking algebra or advanced algebra at high school level.

Pros

Free, shows steps, easy to enter. I did not see any advertising. They replied to my email promptly.

Cons

None that I see.

Summary

I used it to study for an exam. It performed perfectly and showed all the steps. This version solves equations only.

Pros

No errors so far. Free. Shows work. Creates practice problems. Surprisingly fast e-mail support.

Cons

Requires internet connection.

Summary

Highly recommended math software that shows work. And it is free!

Pros

Solves step by step. I was able to run advanced equations from AP program and the solutions were all correct. It is Free.

Cons

It is a Demo for the full program, Equations are enabled, but the rest of the subjects are disabled, but still there as menu items. Somewhat confusing since the option to enter is still there.

Summary

Powerful tool for self learning and practicing to solve algebraic equations.

Pros

Solved equations as well as systems as advertised, step by step. Nice explanations. Great help as I was able to input my own problems.

Cons

The software covers many math topics but only equations are free for user defined problems. For other topics it solves step by step only the predefined problems from the database.

Summary

Works as advertised, great math help. The download does not have CNET Installer. Installation is directly form the publisher. I did not see any adware offers or installs.

Pros

Solved step by step, as advertised. Detailed explanations and verbal commentaries included.

Cons

This is an educational tool, not for scientific calculations.

Summary

This software proved to be very useful. Cannot beat the step by step explanations. It solved everything I tried. The software seems to have many more capabilities but only equations are free. The rest is grayed out. I tried other step by step solvers but this is the only one that seems to make no mistakes.

Pros

This tool is so easy to use I don't have to help my student

Cons

have not found any

Summary

If you have a student taking Algebra, you need this !

Pros

Fantastic, it solved all the problems I tried. Voice comments are great - took me through the solutions step by step. Some solution methods I was not familiar with, but it was easy to follow to the end.

Cons

I wish the rest of the topics were free as well, not just equations.

Summary

Great math help. Solved all equations and systems that I tried. Used it as help for my Advanced Algebra class and it worked great. I was worried due to reviews that it may install some adware but since it was coming from CNET, I took a chance. I am glad I did. Recently I downloaded a Free YouTube Downloader from CNET and it had similar complaints about the search toolbar. I made sure to say NO to all CNET offers and ended up with a clean install. Remarkable how many people cannot follow simple instructions.

Pros

looks intuitive enough as far as menu functions go, however......

Cons

Can't seem to get the program working

Summary

Can't seem to get the program to work; I keep getting the error message: "illegal expression or incorrect expression for this version of UMS"

I would be willing to pay for a good algebra equation solver but this one says 60 day license; what does THAT mean?

Dear ApprenticeshipUSA,

What version are you using? If you are reviewing the Free Algebra Equation Solver then as it is stated in the name of the product it is free and has no license. Did you buy the full version - Universal Math Solver? In that case it has limited licenses of one, two, three month and one year. In any case could you please post what kind of equation are you trying to solve? Please post it here on CNET or you can e-mail to us directly: ums@umsolver.com. We will be glad to help.

Sincerely,

UMS-Team
