Algebra for College Students is designed to provide students with the algebra background needed for further college-level mathematics courses. The unifying theme of this text is the development of the skills necessary for solving equations and inequalities, followed by the application of those skills to solving applied problems. The primary goal in writing the third edition of Algebra for College Students has been to retain the features that made the second edition so successful, while incorporating the comments and suggestions of second-edition users. As always, the author endeavors to write texts that your students can read, understand, and enjoy, while gaining confidence in their ability to use mathematics. While the essence of the text remains, the topics have been rearranged to reflect the current needs of instructors and students.
