Format: Hardcover
Poorly written. The book doesn't so much teach as it does give you a couple examples to learn from. Plus the examples that are given are generally nothing like the actual problems you are asked to solve. Also many of the questions are oddly worded or written as if they are trying to be trick questions. Overall, if you are relying more on the book to teach you than on your actual teacher, this book is really an awful book. It should not be a required algebra textbook.

Paying that much for a textbook is highway robbery. Also when I order a textbook I would sure help to get it quicker than 2 weeks since my class lasts only 10

This book is #1 best seller because it's a required college text. I'm sharing a book in class because of this book's stupid high price. It's not worth $200ish dollars. It's highway robbery, and quite frankly, this book enjoys a cushy monopoly. They won't get my money.

Paying $180+ for a book is a damn ripped off, just because you move chapters around doesn't mean you can raise the book price up and call it a new edition.

This book is junk! The lessons in the book barely explain anything if anything. The reason you'll need this book is just for the problems.
