I used this book in my first college math class, which happened to be remedial algebra/precalc. I was truly deficient in math entering college. My high school algebra teachers were more interested in telling stories/talking to the kids they coached in sports than teaching math, so the first and last time I ever went over trig functions during my high school years was in the ACT prep course I took.

That being said, my college instructor for the algebra class (a grad student) wasn't bad, but I really connected to this book. It is written as a precalc book, and in fact, the text was slightly modified and re-branded as "Precalculus" in later editions. It would be useless as "baby's first algebra book" but it does a very competent job of preparing you for calc. Going into the college class I mentioned, my adviser was so concerned by my assessment tests that she thought I might not be able to pass the class, which was required for all majors. Well, I did...and became a math major...and I couldn't have done it without this book.

I still go back to it for reference/refreshers every so often (doing so now, in fact, which inspired me to write this review). Its style is excellent for that. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting a thorough coverage that will take them through calculus, but it is especially suited to older students or people looking to review/brush up on precalc algebra who find recent editions of textbooks distracting and seemingly formatted with texter attention spans in mind.

This book is the same book my son uses in school. It is not a book you can just pick and learn unless you are a mathematical wizard.We bought it for him to work with a tutor.It is a high school math book.Works for him.

While this book is excellent for review, it is horrible for trying to learn the material. I suggest buying a different book to learn the concepts and buy this book to practice. The questions are challenging.
