Editorial Reviews

Review

Some students in my precalculus class are very weak in algebra. . . . The 'Algebra Help' is definitely beneficial to students . . . [as are the] 'Warning/Cautions' which help those students avoid common mistakes that others make. [And] the 'Student Tips' really guide students in what they should recognize after an example is presented. . . . Larson's text is among the best precalculus books [I've found]."

"I am very satisfied with the exercises as well as the review exercises, they are helpful and there is a range of easy, medium, and hard problems. There is a wealth of example problems and I can easily find examples that show where common algebraic mistakes occur. . . . The use of different colored text makes them very easy to understand."

Pre Calc isn't too fun, but the answers to the odd numbered problems are in the back. It's helpful if you don't have someone to tell you the answers so that you know you're doing things right. You're probably going to buy the book anyway because it's for a class, but I just thought I'd let you know it's alright. All of these books are way over priced though. Better off renting it.

my rented book looked brand new! Loved that it had a hardcover so that the pages wouldn't bend or fold
