Helpful math

by ALLEN J on Jul 25, 2013

This is a good textbook to learn math with. I didn't have the chance to really use it in my math class, but the information contained within is solid.

Poor Condition- not "good"

by Deborah M on Feb 7, 2013

The book itself is clearly written and suitable for self study. No quadratics, though............ :( But the book itself was in much poorer condition than I had expected. It was nearly completely separated from its bindiong.

Challenging enough for non-math persons

by rosabas on Jun 17, 2011

I am not a math major yet I was challenged by the content in this book. It did not create the impulse to turn tail and head for the hills. Its simple, straightforward language, clear examples, and helpful real-world context provide an excellent rationale as to why one should embrace the comprehensive world of mathematics (we cross paths with it every day). Even though the thought of polynomials, orders of magnitude, and CPI index numbers threaten to send my wearied mind spinning, this book has been an anchor for me so that I steadfastly face the windmills like the man of La Mancha. I highly recommend this title. -Roberto Sabas

Great learning tool

by Dee2 on Oct 2, 2008

This book covers a lot of ground but does it very well. The content covers real-world situations: finances, currency conversion, power usage, statistics, and more. The writing is very clear, and there are little overview sections that help refresh old math skills and explain advanced calculator functions. There is also a related web site with additional information. I plan to hold onto this book until I squeeze all the info I can out of it!
