#### Review: Precalculus Mathematics in a Nutshell: Geometry, Algebra, Trigonometry

User Review - Paul - GoodreadsBrilliantly done. Does a great job of showing how to identify core elements/proofs/algorithms of the subjects that can be used to extrapolate those to more proofs/algorithms. Great for the person who wants to not just "memorize" but to really understand. Read full review
