This book is useless. It does not function. The nook app skips pages, the fonts are ridiculous and arbitrary, there are hundreds, maybe thousands of serious mistakes in the text. I am furious that I was forced to buy this book for a class and the ebook form of it was USELESS. You basically just stole my money. I can't believe I am forced to give it one star. I wish the rating system had negative 3 or 4 stars so I could give this book the rating it deserves.
Makes a very good reference book, but as a high school student completing calculus, it was a bit challenging to grasp the concepts. Dettman shows great understanding of the math, but is in need of developing his editorial skills.
