There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Another review was entirely correct in stating that there are very few sample problems for any given concept. Most of the time, there is only one sample problem... and it is often the easiest version of the concept in the example. Utterly unhelpful, usually.
The concepts are so condensed that there are not enough explanations to absorb the central ideas. I seriously found myself getting so excited when I found something useful in the book, because it was so sparingly that I did so.
Many of my classmates played it smart and purchased older textbooks, and I found myself often using their book as a supplement to Giordano's. That shouldn't be necessary.
Oh, I have a relatively high grade in my class (teetering on a 90%). I state that so you don't think I'm blaming the book for any failings that I might have.
I cannot recommend this product.
