The text's main flaw is its breadth of coverage. It's really closer in size to a pamphlet than a book. Particularly as the font appears to have been "artificially" enlarged to make this short work appear even longer. You can confirm this yourself by using Amazon helpful, "Look inside this book" feature. Compared to, for example, the author's "Master Math: Calculus" in this same series, the font here appears to be about 40% larger. In addition, sections often end with considerable white space remaining before the end of the page.
Even with its larger font, this is quite a small-sized text, excluding the index, of less than 170 pages. Using a more typical font size, this text would probably be around 100 pages long. Of the 170 pages. about 90 pages are actually devoted to pre-calculus and geometry. The remainder, almost one-half the book, covers calculus topics: limits, derivatives, and integrals. Thus, the breadth of coverage of both pre-calculus and geometry is quite limited. This allows the author to concentrate on some key topics in both areas, but a consequence is that breadth of coverage is relatively minimal.
One of the earlier reviewers said, "Lots of good trig". While what's presented is nicely done, the chapter on trigonometry is less than 20 pages, and there are some presentation problems. For example, the graphs for the sine and cosine appear to have been constructed from joined semicircles rather than displaying actual sine and cosine functions.Read more ›
