For techy geometry, I'd take a look at Teaching Textbooks. The student has a textbook plus a video teacher, and answers all worked out on video if needed.

There are other video geometries out there, but after looking at lots, I personally liked TT the best. Others would include Math-U-See, Chalkdust, and VideoText.

I think the geometry we're going to use is Jacob's. The textbook has tons of real-life examples to connect geometry to real problems. Therefore, geometry is more understandable and not just memorization of meaningless formulas. It seems friendly, while still having proofs and such.

Another possibility would just be a geometry review book such as Barron's Geometry the Easy Way, or Painless Geometry.

HTH, Julie
