This has to be the worst math book I have ever faced. This is the 4th edition, but there are more mistakes in this book than there are people in the world. After reading a chapter of this book, the book will have you believe 1+1 = 5. Plus, the author thinks that by adding chemistry and physics into the chapters, the material will be easier to understand. However, there is little use for any science in this book. Heck, you can take out the science parts and still learn the material from that section. Well, as long you believe 1+1=5. Again, I still think it is easier to become a brain surgeon than it is dealing with this book. And I wish I could give negative stars.
