Geometry workbook

I am looking for an excellent geometry workbook for next year that I can
use to assign HW each night. Our students use the Glencoe
textbook(which is not working out for HW). There are not enough
examples on what I need them to practice.


This year we used Amsco Geometry Review. I didn't like it. Amsco
made an amazing Seq II review book many years ago. Why can't they edit
that one??? I teach a regular class that just needs a lot of practice
on the basic questions. Most of the questions were way too difficult.
The cumulative reviews in the back of the book would have been excellent
but most of the questions were not like the regents. The Amsco Algebra
2/Trigonometry review book is excellent. I just don't understand!!!

Last year we used West Sea, which I think was better than Amsco but not
great. There was a lot of mistakes and some topics were left out and
other topics were included that was not part of the NYS curriculum. I
wish I can write a book or work for one of those companies(no time for
either..maybe when I retire)!!!!


Anybody else have any other ideas?? What do you use for HW?? I have yet
to find a textbook or wokbook that has enough good examples. Thanks!!!
