This text covers all of the standard topics for college algebra. The first four chapters give an introduction to algebra for those students who need it. There is also a cumulative review exercise at the end of Chapter 4.The exercises are a normal lesson apart, and the problems in each exercise are in groups of four similar ones. This makes it a simple matter for even the inexperienced instructor to make a good assignment regularly. Most classes only need to be assigned every fourth problem, but other problems are available for practice. There are about 5000 problems in some 75 regular and 12 review exercises. About half of the problems are new, and there are many drill problems which are closely keyed to the examples.Answers are given in the text for three-fourths of the regular and all of the review problems.
