Editorial Reviews

From The Critics

"It has worked well for me since I adopted it last fall. My students do well with it and are not overwhelmed (or bored) with too much material as they often were with my previous textbook. This text provides just the right balance--adequate information presented in a simplistic manner with plenty of practice and review exercises."
