This semester (Spring 2009) for the first time I used McKeague's Intermediate Algebra to teach the subject at a California community college campus. Making the transition from Bittinger/Ellenbogen, and having been used to their online management system (MathXL) I was at first a bit uncomfortable with the new textbook, but after a few weeks things started rolling as usual. In fact Cengage (which recently purchased the Thomson Learning) also offers iLrn, an online course management system for many of their books and I was able to get the students signed on there for submitting homework, exams, viewing videos, accessing tutorials and other math resource pages. Overall the text is very user-friendly and meanwhile it is designed for those students who do not intend to continue their studies into the so-called hard sciences (which typically require a more intense 5-unit course in college algebra delving deeper in some areas such as solving 3x3 systems of equations with matrix methods, sequences and series, conic sections, and a heavier emphasis on technology usage.) However every section of McKeague contains applied/word problems which are highly appreciated by the students in the humanities and social sciences, who are often not too concerned with the technical details of a math topic as much as with its real life usages. We are in fact en route to covering the entire 10 chapters of the text this semester and also assigned a 10% optional extra credit project from the many suggested group/research topics, that the students can choose to submit by the last week of the instruction. In brief, having used McKeague was a welcome change and I am glad it was suggested to me by the college department managers this semester. The only issue is the high price tag, a problem for many students. In any event I look forward to working with the newest 8th edition in a future academic year.

The text book that I purchased from Amazon was amazing. This book was almost new, it was in perfect condition. I love it, thanks so much. I would also like to say, the representative who took care of me during this order, was fantastic. She was very kind, knowledgeable and patient.

Thank you
