This textbook is supposed to come with a Student Access Code, but if you buy it used or rent it, chances are you won't get a usable code. The book is not even needed (says my professor) if you have the access code, as all the info is taught by Elaiyne Martin-Gay herself online! Just know what your buying is all I'm saying!

For those of us who had done the basic math as kids in the 1940s and 50s, this book was Greek. However, with a great teacher to cut through the excess verbage and some wrong answers, one did learn to use the new rules of progression. I learned "Please excuse my dear Aunt Sally" to know what order to solve the problems. After that it was easy.

A good text that is well written with clear examples for principles, and also includes a lot of useful exercises for practice. However, be careful to avoid purchasing the "Annotated Instructor's Edition" if you are purchasing it for paid-, accredited-coursework! Why? Turns out the answers being provided is okay if you are a disciplined student; HOWEVER, if your professor requires the text to be used in class for "GRADED" activities, BEWARE! It will cost you a penalty in grading and/or dismissal from class!

I had to buy this for a course and found it for a great price on Amazon. Not only was it a great price but it was also great condition as well. The book itself was poorly written and very uninformative.

My book is missing a bunch of pages. couldn't do a couple of my homework's because of that. or follow in class. I would've sent it back but it would've taken too much time to get another one.
