My High School math teacher wants me to learn Theory of Equations.

What he means by this is that he wants me to memorize and practice implementing the wonderful methods of solving complicated Algebra problems very simply using theory of equations.

(for example, the the rational roots theorem).

I've found many ebooks available that cover "The Theory of Equation" and are very interested in teaching you exactly WHY everything works and what you're doing... much more University level stuff.

I, however, am uninterested in any of that (at the moment).

I just want a book that will give you a theorem and a load of problems to practice applying the theorem.

Any ideas would be GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thank you.
