In this new ADVANTAGE SERIES version of David Cohen's PRECALCULUS: WITH UNIT CIRCLE TRIGONOMETRY, THIRD EDITION, Cohen continues to offer a book that is accessible to the student through a careful progression and presentation of concepts, rich problem sets and examples to help explain and motivate concepts, and continual guidance through the challenging work needed to master concepts and skills. This book is identical to PRECALCULUS: A PROBLEMS-ORIENTED APPROACH, Fifth Edition with the exception of the first four chapters on trigonometry. As part of the ADVANTAGE SERIES, this new version will offer all the quality content you've come to expect from Cohen sold to your students at a significantly lower price.
