Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was purchased for a college math class. It is very difficult to follow and there is too much material cluttered together that makes it difficult to understand concepts, especially since I am someone who has not had a math course since the early 70's. I would suggest that if you are using this book in a college course, it would be to your advantage to have a tutor who can explain things in a much simpler way than they are explained by these authors. I am so glad that I did not purchase this book, but rented it instead!! It definitely needs to be revised!!
