This item was never sent nor did I receive any notification that it wasn't sent. Found out 2weeks later when trying to find any type of shooping information, which was not provided. Found out through my bank. This is a lousy company, not sure the type of business they are running. Check individual sellers instead.

This is a very concisely written textbook. Martin-Gay does a magnificent job going through all the intermediate algebra fundamentals. It has great applications that relate math to the real world too! I'm a math tutor, and what I really like about this text is that, you don't have to be great in mathematics to understand it. It is written for math whiz kids and math phobies alike. Whether it's a required text for class or for independent study, I'm sure you'll be pleased with this book.
