What would make this book better is if the examples given in the chapter corresponded better with the homework problems. I understand that answers can't just be given away, but sometimes they throw a curveball and it's tough to figure out how to go about solving the problem.read more
The primary subject of this book is precalculus. It was very effective, there are plenty of examples and the explanations are simple.
Pre-calculus material. This book was very effective in covering the required material.read more
More problem solving exercises with answers would make this book more beneficial to most students taking pre-calculus courses.
All was helpful to me. Very easy to follow and gives good problems to practice.read more
It is very explanatory and easier to read. Other books have been very hard to follow and I found myself rereading the chapter over again to understand but with this it was my understandable.
This book would be better if would explain the formulas step by step instead of skipping through with its examples.read more
Primary subject is advance trigonometry with intro to calculus. It was a great book to learn from and having a decent teacher to guid you is key.
Some of the examples were completely useless but the explanations and definitions were A+read more
I ended up keeping this book longer than expected because it really helped me through calc, it helped simply many things for me.
The primary subject was Mathematics covering PreCalculus concepts. The book covered everything taught in the class, ranging from moderate algebra to trigonometric proofs.read more
My favorite feature was the written examples, as I am a visual learner.
When I first started to use the book I was impressed by the pre-requisite chapter, and I also thought the book was easy to readread more
I would perhaps disagree slightly with the prerequisites recommended in the book
I need this book for my math 123 which is a trigonometry/calculus course and this book was very helpful.read more
I don't believe I have any bad reviews for this book. We skipped around a lot and the parts of the book that we had to study from was very helpful.
The book itself was least useful to me the only reason I had to buy the book was to do online tests with the access code. These codes are unfair to the student, because they make getting your money back on books that are not even used except for one code nearly impossible.read more
Precalculus, required that I "use" this book even though the book was never actually used only one page was ever opened in this book, and that page was to get the UNFAIR online code.
It's much easier to learn from this one than other math books I've had in the past. If there's something I forgot how to do it's easy to find where and how to do it.read more
I'm still currently using this book so I don't know if I can say what the most useful thing I've learned yet.
This book actually was more annoying than useful. There were a lot of errors in the book that threw me off.read more
Learning trig was interesting, but I don't know how I'll use it
This book did a very good job of explaining concepts step by step. Compared to other math textbooks, this one was actually easy to follow, the problems and examples were similar and flowed in a logical way.read more
I learned about vectors, conic equations,trigonometry and various functions from this book.
