I am currently a freshman in high school, and am taking Trig/Precal. Last year I took one semester of Algebra II. These 3 semesters are covered within this book. It is coherently written, and gives you all the necessary information for Calculus. The chapters flow very well, so the course(s) can be taught from beginning to end (although our semester of Precal jumps from chapter 3 to 10 to 9 to 7 to 8...). The problems that it gives increase in difficulty, to the point where some need you to know another formula, or for you to think outside the box. By doing these, you can also prove theorems, and have a better understanding of why things work (like the relationship between 'n choose r and Pascal's Triangle') Granted, I have never used any other precalculus textbook, I still feel that this one is much more solid than textbooks of the past.

This book was so memorable that all I can remember about it was the ugly boring cover. It was so inspiring that I never bothered keeping it. I think I sold it back to the bookstore for like $20. But all in all, its your typical text on the topic. Nothing fancy or special about it, but it does the job. It helped to get me an A in the class so what more can I ask?
