Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book, the fourth in the "Master Math" series, describes every major topic in the calculus, from functions through vector integral theorems, in a terse, no-nonsense manner, but the amateurish format is disappointing. Despite the availability of word-processing software that can do an excellent job on mathematical expressions, many of the formulae in this book are badly printed. Students accustomed to the new computerized graphics in most textbooks will find the diagrams and graphs rudimentary and unappealing. The text contains little in the way of motivation, few interesting examples, and no exercises. In the end, it feels more like the outline of a calculus text than an instructional book on the subject, and the student or practitioner who wants one would probably be better served (and save money) by picking up a used copy of any popular calculus textbook. Not recommended.--Harold D. Shane, Baruch Coll., CUNY

This is the best book on learning basic algebra. It is thorough yet concise. The information is presented very clearly. The author has obviously tried to explain the concepts so that they `make sense¿ to students - and their parents. I use the book to explain algebra to my students. Like the other Master Math books by Ross, the topics flow logically and build in difficulty. What a breath of fresh air after the often confusing text books students are given in school. This book is helpful for students struggling with algebra and the parents who are tutoring them. This book is also extremely useful for older students who did not adequately learn algebra, yet find they need to know it later. Topics can easily be looked up and reviewed or learned. I highy recommend this book!

Splendid clarity and progression. A cherry on top of this fine sundae, maybe a single page of exponential, radical,and complex properties for a quick reference,( but that's nitpicking).

This is the best book out there on learning trigonometry. I especially appreciate the visually-oriented focus. Each concept is described in all its forms, such as sine. Do you know each of the different ways sine can be described? Like the other Master Math books by Ross, the topics flow logically and are in context with what precedes and follows. It is thorough yet concise, and packed full of everything you, as tutor, or your kids need to know. The real world and fun applications are wonderful! The information is explained clearly and in a way that makes sense, so that a given concept is explained in such a way you understand what is being discussed rather than just memorizing formulas. What a breath of fresh air after the often confusing text books I was and my children are given in school. I really feel I can explain trigonometry to young people using this book! if I were going back to school, and taking math or science, this book would be in my backpack.

i am not sure if i am missing something but on page 14 the book says x times $1.00 per glass will equal 20. then shows this equation X + ($1.00 per glass)=$20.00

This book is terrible. There are many books that are better. I found websites more helpful.
