WORST MATH BOOK I'VE EVER TRIED TO LEARN FROM, FAILS TO ARTICULATE CRITICAL POINTS NEEDED TO PASS TESTS AND EXCEL IN CLASS. MALICIOUSLY UNHELPFULL BOOK
This was the _best_ math book i ever had. I don't know what your thing was, but the problems didn't exactly mirror the examples and they weren't meant to. This book got me ready for calculus.
