Overview

A clear, concise presentation of the standard topics of college algebra and trigonometry — covering the mathematics (algebra, functions, analytic geometry, trigonometry combinatorics, and probability) needed before approaching more advanced subjects such as calculus and discrete mathematics. Written with both instructor and student in mind, the text is easy to use, and each section can be covered in one class. Clearly marked subsections make it easy to omit more basic topics when necessary. The material is carefully organized and paced, offering thoughtful explanations through a combination of examples and theory. Contains an excellent review of basic algebra, with coverage of equations and inequalities, graphs and functions, complex numbers and more. This edition contains more exercises requiring the use of a calculator, new and numerous examples, and end-of-section exercises that provide a good test of the student's progress.

This book is your basic text covering all College Algebra and Pre-calculus topics. It covers the entire gammet of topics from basic algebra on up inluding trig, matrices, vectors, probabilty, etc. It's a good reference book for the basics, with lots of examples and tons of problems (with answers included). It is easy to understand and problems explanations are clear. I would recommend it as a good book for the youngsters (or oldsters) just learning the topic. It doesn't assume you have a vast background in algebra.
