this book is very good with the information, but it does NOT have any of the problems! Amazon should have made it very clear that one would have to buy the MyMathLab to get problems for homework. Very unhappy about what I got from the information provided!

I am taking math this semester and this is the required text. The bad thing about this book is that it has crappy examples.I was afraid to miss a class because if I did, I would not understand the material. The instructor teaching the class explains the material much better. This book is a big waste of money. If I could, I would give this book zero stars.

This book was required for my math instruction, and as several readers have mentioned before, I am glad that the instructor was an excellent teacher the book by itself is no use. Unless you understand math to begin with.

However used with an excellent instructor it becomes a useful tool.

Why would the book be titled MyMathLab Edition and not contain the mymathlab kit? This was very misleading. I am unhappy and will probably never buy from this company or recommend it to anyone. They should make it clear that this book does not contain the code needed for mymathlab.

This book was the required book for my college class. It is nothing short of pure torture. Thank God my professor is excellent!! The examples in this book are very hard to interpret and the problems are not much good either. Also, the answers to the chapter problems in the back of the book contain only the odd-numbered problems. Good luck!

This book supports students by offering examples that are clear and easy to understand. I enjoyed using this text as it offered students the opportunity to successfully solve challenging exercises. Math textbooks are extremely difficult to read and interpret. Martin-Gay took her book to a level of simplicity that most math texts simply don't have.

The best thing about the online course I took with my community college were the lectures that were provided here in these CDs (which, at the time were not CD's but were just online).

The author is very clear in her explanations of how to do algebra, that even now, 6 years later, I am using them again to help my daughter to understand her basic algebra course as well (and using it to refresh my memory). Thank goodness I was able to find them, since they weren't available to purchase at the time I took my course. But they are well worth it!

This product is not what it looks like. In the online ordering process, it was not mentioned anywhere that you must also purchase MyMathLab seperately. When I recieved this book, I discovered that the format of the book did NOT include any of the chapter exercises. Which obviously is important and necessary for any student ordering a textbook. So buyer beware. This book does not include everything.

The book shows great examples and gives you a decent amount of space to write in it and show my work. I would just like to point out to you that it is not exactly the same as my professors school book. By that I mean, the page numbers are different and some of the practice questions that he wants me to do were not in the book. But, I still learned everything and am getting A's on all of my exams!

This book is in great condition For being used, no writting on any pages or the covers, no bent pages, over all in perfect condition, and I am picky on how a book looks. I hardly even used the book because I ordered it and it was the worng book but I looked through it and used it to study until I got the right book.
