This is a terrible book. Hard to read
on November 26, 2014
This is a terrible book. Hard to read. I bought it for a class without realizing there were online materials for the class. It turned out that I barely used this book at all and just used the online tutorials provided by the class - because this book was so difficult to manage. It is not a book for anyone who needs to know "essentials" - it is not written by anyone who understands what "basic" math students need to know. I spent most of my time surfing the internet for what I needed to know instead of using this book. I have used much better math books in the past - therefore I can validly compare this book to others and it comes off very poorly.
