I got this book for my College Algebra class. I starts off really basic and gets harder gradually. However, it doesn't give very much explanation about the concepts. The cool thing about this book is that is has the answer key in the back so students can check their work to see if they get it.

This book is an outstanding treatment of basic algebra concepts. It is an efficient tool for learning, as most people learn by having concepts explained in a succinct way and then seeing the concepts applied in a number of examples. This book hits it out of the park in that regard. I teach for a university of students, many of whom have part-time jobs. Such learners can appreciate this book when compared to other more verbose, wandering tomes. This book stresses how to solve the problems using concepts just presented. There are opportunities for full chapter reviews (at the end of each chapter) and full reviews of the book up to various points at the end of each chapter (cumulative reviews). Answers to odd-numbered problems are located at the back of the book. Whether you are a self-learner or a student whose time is precious, I can't recommend this book highly enough.

I purchased this book because it was being used for the class I needed to take in college. For people who have a natural talent for algebra, this book will be sufficient, however if you struggle with it as I do, then you will need more. This book explains the basic concepts-nothing more. The CD's aren't much help either. I ended up dropping the class for the time being because I couldn't keep up. The price was great though.

for the price of it, it was like brand new. It came with a cd tutorial (the package was never opened) and the glossary still attached to it.

This book is confusing. The sample examples are not helpful when completing the problems as they get harder. The disc for the computer is nothing more than a person working out the the examples in the beginning of each section so if you have a question on to do a specific problem this disc will not help you.

I've taken classes with Lial-authored books before and was more impressed with explanations and examples. They kind of dropped the ball with this book.

Granted, I was dealing with a type-A and somewhat befuddled and unorganized instructor which was a side-show in and of itself to deal with. However, this book has some seriously odd bumps in the road in it. Section 7.4 "Equations with Rational Expressions and Graphs" lacks adequate explanatory detail to complete some of the section quiz questions. Same could be said for numerous areas in Chapter 8, "Roots, Radicals, and Root Functions," as well as parts of Chapter 9, "Quadratic Equations, Inequalities and Functions." I found that, partly due to the instructor's nonsense and partly due to poor examples in these sections, I had to review these areas and reference other algebra books I own to feel comfortable before proceeding to College Algebra.
