    Highly Recommended!!!!!!

    I took a Trigonometry course at Harford Community College in the Spring of 2011, and this was the assigned text book. To basically sum up this review, I went into the final exam with a 98% over all average. This text book is well written and easy to understand. I found myself sad when the class ended! Furthermore, I opted to not sell this back to the book store. I keep it on the book shelf in my bedroom, and I occasionally pull it out to prove a few trigonometric identities in my spare time. ^_^

    p.s. Yes, I am a nerd; (although, I prefer the term intellectual bad ass, but whatever).
