5.0 out of 5 stars A real easy approach. September 10, 2001
I found the book very useful for brushing up one's knowledge of trigonometry.It gets down to the point right away without wasting any time on unnecessary theory.After all, its your problem solving ability that counts and not how well you know the theory.:)
What I like most about this book is that it treats the subject matter from a student's point of view (like it teaches you how to get the answer using a calculator STEP by actually tells you which buttons to push).Also, throughout the book ,the application of trigonometry in surveying, construction,astronomy and air-navigation is emphasized.
I recommend this book for anyone who's taking computer science/engineering/technology courses in college.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great review of trigonometry September 21, 2001
Trigonometry was never a good subject for me--I never "got" it. But when I was taking advanced math and science courses, I needed trig. This book helped me to "get" it, finally, and be able to solve trigonometric problems. It's very clear, up-to-date, and well-written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Trigononometry exams January 7, 2005
A Kid's Review
I am observing that my test scores on tests on tests involving trigonometery are increasing, thanks to this thin aid. It is thin, yet it is good. That is almost impossible. This book is one of the best created. Trigonometry is hard, and is mentioned and applied almost everywhere. This book is comphrehensive and is both easy and advanced. Everyone should have this. You can have knowledge of math, science, and computers with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Summer School REview July 31, 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used Schaum's for a Summer School Trigonometry course. It doesn't replace a textbook but it covered all the necessary topics effectively and provided a good alternative to derivations and problems found in the text. I relied on it as a backup and a good check on the work being covered in class.

1.0 out of 5 stars Piss Poor Book for Learning November 19, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had to have this book for a trigonometry class, and it sucks. There were so many miss prints in the book, that it was actually a disgrace, and I personally think this book is unfit for learning. There are way too many miss prints in this book, and it is piss poor at explaining concepts and how to work problems. When I went to study for a test on graphing sines, cosines, and tangents, I actually had to look the material up online because I could not understand the book, and almost everyone that's in my class says that they cannot understand the book all that great, so I know it's not just me, and my professor even went so far as to say that the book had a lot of miss prints. If you ever have to buy this for a class, BEWARE! My best suggestion would be to buy an alternate text that's a lot better if this is a requirement for a class.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible book!!!! September 17, 2012
By Joe
The preface claims that the book can be used by students who are studying trig for the first time. What a load of bunk. As a "first time" trig student, I couldn't get through the first chapter without getting confused. I moved on to the second chapter, and the information was just as muddled. This book may be more useful as a study guide to be used together with a real trig textbook, but I don't believe it is useful for the beginner. Kahn Academy on Youtube gave more clearer explanations and examples on the subject. Beginners should stay away from this book!

However, I used this book from beginning to end and now I am able to pass a trig test. I would like to suggest a better write-up on explaining trigonometric graphs such as "Y=1/2 cosine 3x-16". This book truly helped me make sense of something that is abstract to me.
