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.
