Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The writing is clear and accessible for students…Concepts are developed through a series of carefully constructed illustrative examples which make transitions from precalculus to calculus smooth." "The text contains a wealth of the end-of-section and end-of-chapter exercises to provide students with opportunities to reinforce new concepts presented in the test. Skills development is appropriately balanced with concept development. Chapter Tests help students practice for the real thing."
