It's a mathematics textbook that provides exactly what it claims. It's neither amazing nor bad. It's just a means to an end: learning what you need to know if you want to learn calculus afterward. Read full review

About the author (2001)

Mark Dugopolski was born in Menominee, Michigan. After receiving a B.S. from Michigan State University, he taught high school for four years, and then went on to receive an M.S. in mathematics from Northern Illinois University. He also received a Ph.D. in the area of topology from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, and ever since, Mark has been teaching at Southeastern Louisiana in Hammond, LA. He has been writing textbooks for about fifteen years. He is married and has two daughters, and enjoys playing tennis, jogging, and riding his bicycle in his spare time. Despite the presence of sailboats both on and in his precalculus textbooks, Mark does not sail-- it's his passion for showing students how mathematics is used in the real world that led him to the world of sailing.
