It showed you examples of how every problem is doneread more
How to manage my money and because I never really knew how to use my money wisely
This book was more of a refresher for me, however the examples that were given throughout the book were very helpful to me to relearn the information. Along with the practice problems that were given at the end of each chapter. It may have also helped that I had an excellent professor when it came to teaching the subject, I am not the best in math and I believe that the professor and examples given make all the difference. I recommend renting this book if you are good in math, but buy it if you feel that you will need help throughout your academic career.read more
Nothing, the book has good examples and practice problems
This prep book does a few things absolutely right, but there is no doubt that it falls short.read more
That's where this book is so useful. If you do all the practice problems, you'll cover the great majority of concepts
The statistical process. I did not know how to do a statistics paper.read more
The class had to do with death and grieving of a loved one in many different ways. Also at many different stages in life by different causes.
It helps great like the others. Math is not always the easiest subject, but this book really helped me understand the class betterread more
The constant reading made it difficult to focus. So examples were the best to understand
Math is the primary subject of this book. It was nearly perfect.read more
it was all very helpful. I didn't find anything wrong with the book whatsoever.
The mortgage lessons were least helpful because I have already purchased a home and thoroughly understand the process and computation of a mortgage.read more
Most features of this book are useful in day to day activities. This information should be taught to high school kids so they can be ready for the nuances of real life.
College Math 108 ... it was learning about statistics and algebra and a lot of other thingsread more
the primary subject was to learn how to understand mathematics.. the book was effective I just wish it gave better examples.
It gave examples you would use in real life. For example budgeting, student loans, mortgages, and percents.read more
Step-by-step instructions which were clear and helped you get to the answer.
This was my first college mathematics class as a freshman. Comparing it to the textbooks I used in high school, I would say that it was a useful text. The exercises went with the chapters and helped me to understand concepts I struggled with. While we didn't use this text in class and my professor taught from her own version of notes, she told us to use it to better understand subjects. Overall, I would use this text again.read more
The primary subject of this book is mathematics. This book was effective in covering the subject, even if we didn't use it in my class. I mostly used it outside of class for studying on my own.
Book did what it said it would, professor used it like a bible. The section on taxes- it would be nice to see a break down that actually shows/tells/helps you understand how to file your taxes.read more
I can not answer this... I have not read other math text books.
