My daughter was enrolled in an on-line college course in college algebra which used this text. I had taken college algebra many years ago but didn't want to rely on my memory of the material to try to assist her, so I purchased the subject text from Amazon. I was surprised at how well this text presented the material. The text is easy to understand and covers the material very well with numerous examples and the necessary proofs. I highly recommend this text to anyone interested in studying the material.

This book was required for my daughter's College Algebra class. It's ok, but isn't the best at explaining how to do certain types of problems. Luckily for my daughter, we have several other kids older than her who have done well in college math who can help her with the tougher concepts. She aced the class.

I didn't read good enough apparently. Don't like the a la carte edition, but I take full responsibility-I did not see where it was loose leaf.

I've assisted my kids with learning Math all through their school years and in college too. By far this is the easiest book to understand. The methods of teaching Algebra have changed numerous times over the years, but this book states it plain and simple. If you haven't studied Algebra in twenty years, or it's a subject that intimidates you, this book will help you.

The book has reviews and helpful information for finding the answers. Although it was the required text for my class, I learned lot from the review portion. Thanks

No hassle delivery, fast and accurate. I might've overlooked the explanation of the product and was little surprised to receive the book in loose leafs but it worked well with a folder. The pages were clean and with no markings.

This text book has information that can just as easily be found for free online that is much easier to understand. Unless you need to buy it in order to pass the class i would not wast your money. I hope text books like this go the way of the dinosaurs they are inferior to the vast amount of free resources available online. also it would not work on my droid so i could not take it to class (i bought the e-book version of it specifically for this reason, and to save my back from tugging a huge text book around)

My conclusion: huge wast of money, instead spend your money on a good tutor if you are struggling.
