The author is able to clearly explain the concepts, provides excellent examples and details the steps so the reader isn't left wondering "what happened" between steps.
The book does not contain problems for the reader to solve (so if that is what you need you will need to look elsewhere) but this book is excellent for the intended purpose.
I recommend this book for those that are finding their current material lacking in helping them learn the subject.
Though this title, the Trig book, is better than the others by the same author.
First, it does lack exercises as others have pointed out, and the author's writing style is confusing at times.
However, I at least can understand the author's organization of the subject. Which is simply to lay a foundation and build on it. And it succeeds.
There is a nice review of Geometry to start with, and the topics are laid out in a logical progression.
The author uses the standard examples that Trig textbooks generally cover, and a few others which really are helpful. However, the biggest selling point is that the author provides the tools to help you understand the applications and build problem solving skills of your own.
Honestly this is probably the only useful Trig study guide on the market. So by default it is the best. Avoid the Dummies books.
I do not recommend the other titles in the "Mastering Math" series, but this one is at least wothwhile. So it gets the benefit of the doubt and 4 stars.
