College Algebra (5th Edition)

Bob Blitzer’s unique background in mathematics and behavioral sciences, along with his commitment to teaching, inspired him to develop a precalculus series that gets readers engaged and keeps them engaged. Presenting the full scope of the mathematics is just the first step. Blitzer draws in the reader with vivid applications that use math to solve real-life problems. These applications help answer the question “When will I ever use this?” Readers stay engaged because the book helps them remain focused as they study. The three-step learning system—See It, Hear It, Try It—makes examples easy to follow, while frequent annotations offer the support and guidance of an instructor’s voice. Every page is interesting and relevant, ensuring that readers will actually use their textbook to achieve success! This textbook comes with two CD-ROMs.

For a College Algebra textbook it's very good. I can't say I loved it, but that's the subject matter.. not the book itself. Does a very good job of explaining things in an understandable and occasionally entertaining way. Plenty of exercises and examples to help. ...more
