"Cover[s] all of the basic topics that a high school or beginning university student should be expected to know....

"Covers all the basics of the subject through beautiful illustrations and examples…. Throughout, the treatment stimulates the reader to think of mathematics as a unified subject."
— L'enseignement Mathématique
"As a teacher I enjoyed this book enormously and I will doubtless borrow many of the plums to spice up my lessons…. [For] that ideal student who is to be prepared to be challenged to think what the subject is really about, and has the patience to excavate the basic ideas for all they are worth before jumping on to the next chapter, it should prove to be a godsend."
—The Mathematical Gazette
"The authors tried to explain the results of trigonometry as simply as possible…. The exercises include a few problems of each routine type. Most of the problems exhibit a new aspect of the technique or object under discussion. One of the goals of this book is to prepare students for a course in calculus. We recommend it for teachers and students."

this text needs no review, would be excellent source for k-12 teachers of mathematics
it arrived on time, but a bit pricey.
I had purchased this book based on all of the positive reviews from this website and others. However, I was not at all happy with the result. Read morePublished on July 9, 2010 by Christopher R. Jenkins
I usually buy books that have good feedback because it has served me well in the past, but unfortunately this isn't the case with this book. Read morePublished on October 16, 2008 by Lubom
This is a very good Trig book. However, there was no offer of an answer book. I will teach a course using this book. Read more
