From the PublisherWe have chosen this edition of the book after previously using the earlier edition. The strengths of this book include: reading level, number of examples, varied exercises, good applications overall, use of technology, use of symbols, and terminology consistent with the goals of our course. Faculty Member, Johnson County Community College.
The coverage is better (clearer, succinct, to the point) than in our current text. The quality of the applications is excellent. I also really like the way the author treats the material in the highlighted (yellow) text boxes. Other texts use mathematical symbols and explanations the average student cannot follow. This text states topics like the product rule, the quotient rule, and the chain rule in an understandable way.Faculty Member, Kennesaw State University.
There are plenty of students who do not possess required algebra skills. I like the effort made in this book. Faculty Member, Northern Illinois University.
The level of the text, examples, and exercises make it an outstanding text. The visuals are A+, better than ours. Faculty Member, Polk Community College.
There is a limited amount of prose, which is good since the students do not read it. I like the authors' "be careful" admonitions, section summary, [and] careful derivations at the end of the sections. Clear explanations, rigor, well thought out examples, and good variety of exercises. Faculty Member, University of North Carolina.
