Sullivan was dry, boring, confusing and seemed deliberately abstruse in presenting the material. If you take a course using his book, you were guaranteed to spend a lot of time falling asleep from reading his dry, boring material--when you weren't on Khan Academy, in math labs and with math tutors trying to understand anything at all about what he was covering. Did I mention that his book is dry and boring? It's so dry and boring that it almost made me hate math--and I'm a math major!
Blitzer is more direct and explains things in simpler terms, with numerous step-by-step examples to help you pick up how things work. He has a Great Questions feature that frequently covers the "bottom line" about complex material that gets to the heart of things and provides effective short cuts to understanding concepts in a memorable way. He explains things so well that you can teach yourself with his book, and this is NOT easy material for self-study. Unless you're a math genius, you could never do that with Sullivan.
If you have a choice, like I do, and you're worried about understanding precalculus, take the class that uses this book. You won't regret it.
Please note that this package COMES WITH MYMATHLAB, as stated above. Do NOT buy it separately if you buy this product; the code comes with this. Amazon is offering another version that is just the textbook. DO NOT BUY THAT if you need MML. Currently, if your professor requires MML, this product is the best option. Do not buy the textbook and MML separately, unless you can get a used book for cheap (ie under 120ish), because it will not be worth it.
This book comes with an online access code to use the internet for online lessons and Math Lab. If you are buying a used book, make sure you call to confirm that it has the access code, but be aware that used books usually do not have it because the previous owner already registered it on his or her own name. Better buy new. If this is required by your university or school, you will be in a pickle if your books comes without one. That Math Lab is a life saver because it provides detailed step by step instructions how to solve the math problems and newer versions come with online lessons too.
Another point to check is that if you buy either older or new editions of Blitzer, make sure you have the required power and security access to use the online lab and lessons because the online book will not load properly if your computer is a dinosaur. Other times, the access code is no longer available because the edition is too old or too new and your computer does not support it.There is a web site they have that checks your computer to make sure you have the right stuff to open the books and lab.This tip will save you a lot of grief.
