    Excellent title

    I have had a great deal of difficulty with Math. It appears that this author understands what students struggle with in math. Many of the extra examples and tips were exactly what I needed to understand what I was doing wrong. Best math book I have used. MyMathLab software must be the best on the market. It taught me math! Practice makes perfect and MyMathLab excels in this area. If you get the problem wrong, it shows you step by step how to get it right and lets you try a new problem of the same type. It dosen't get any better.
