As a math tutor, I am familiar with many books. I really like this book because it explains everything I would want the student to know. It illustrates all the common pitfalls very clearly.

***** 5 stars for presentation (layout, typesetting, use of color, organization).

***** 5 stars for content (the authors seem to be very in touch with what explanations work for students both in the short term, and what explanations are best for them in the long term.)

***** 5 stars for the exercises. There are a lot of exercises in each section (usually around 100?). They cover the basics all the way up to what they call the 'sythesis' problems, where the student can challenge themselves to do advanced problems. I really like the synthesis problems because they are do-able and can make the student start to feel confident.

This is an impressive presentation of algebra & trig. It has a wealth of well designed visual aids and clear worked examples. Is it worth the list price of $144? No! There are scanty few textbooks that I would deem worthy of such outrageous prices. But, since this one can be obtained used for a reasonable price, I'd give it a thumbs up with no reservations.

BTW - the previous reviewer's one star rating only reflects the publisher's (or Amazon's) failure to provide adequate details of the nature of book. That really has nothing to do with conveying the quality of the textbook's presentation of the material.

This is a very well thought out book, on Algebra 2 and Trig. I tutor several kids through the summer every year....and we will ALL get a LOT of miles out of this book. There are approx. 1000 pages to this hard bound book, AND solutions to the problems are included. I have been tutoring Alg II and Trig, since high school, and I am a retired Engineer. This book is as good as any I've ever used for tutoring.

This book is identical to the Precalculus book written by the same authors. If you already own the other book, don't buy this one unless you need a door stop. The solutions manual works for both books.

It's the most explicit math book I ever read. The explanations and the examples provided are so clear that you will have no problem making the exercises and the exams. I want to congratulate the authors for such a great job.

exellent book, goes over algerba from the basics to the intemediates of trig. compared to thinking mathematically it makes it looks like a cheesy childrens book. this book looks better, which is not a big issue, but in obese america, walking around with a big black and white cow on the cover of a peice of college material sends a strong mixed message. this is a good book wih basic - indepth areas of focus, to help build you from the bottom to the top of where ever you want to get to.

Came fast and was in a better used condition than I expected. So far, it seems like a good idea to order under the Amazon name products, even if product (or book) may be used.

I hate the school book system. They are heavy, expensive, and they go obselete very soon after they are released, which could protentially hurt your resale value very badly. It is a money black-hole, and this book is a product of that system.
