    Really great and useful!

    This book is required for my class. At first I was scared with all the memorization but it all became clear once I did the exercises. It's very simple. This was meant for the class room. If you plan to buy it just to learn the math then I wouldn't recommend it. Otherwise it's great if using with an instructor!! I've learned so much and it became so easy very quickly!!
