Early editions were much better
on January 20, 2012
I was familiar with early editions of this series (when the authors were just Masterton and Slowinski) and expected this to be of equal quality. It's not. It appears that in order to reduce the size and cost of the textbook, parts of the text were simply deleted. Unfortunately, that leaves gaps that the authors have not adequately smoothed out. As the instructor, one of my main responsibilities with this text has now become figuring out what is missing and filling in the gaps for the students. This text is therefore NOT suitable for students to use by and for themselves.
