1 Review

The Problem Solvers are an exceptional series of books that are thorough, unusually well-organized, and structured in such a way that they can be used with any text. No other series of study and solution guides has come close to the Problem Solvers in usefulness, quality, and effectiveness. Educators consider the Problem Solvers the most effective series of study aids on the market. Students regard them as most helpful for their school work and studies. With these books, students do not merely memorize the subject matter, they really get to understand it. Each Problem Solver is over 1,000 pages, yet each saves hours of time in studying and finding solutions to problems. These solutions are worked out in step-by-step detail, thoroughly and clearly. Each book is fully indexed for locating specific problems rapidly. Prepares students for calculus courses. Thorough coverage of first-year college math, including algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions and their graphs. Includes solutions of linear and quadratic equations, analytic geometry, elementary statistics, differentiation and integration, determinants, matrices, and systems of equations. Problem-solving strategies are included at the beginning of every chapter for each topic covered.

this book is unnecessarily abstruse. It is almost ironic that this book is designed to assist a student in his or her understanding of pre-calculus.
