Book is actually pretty good, I like the fact that its first chapter is a review of stuff from intermediate algebra...if you are using this book...and you have just finished intermediate/college algebra...get this book and do each section of ch. 1...this will set you up for a good foundation for the rest of the class. I like the visuals of the book...I have the most recent edition.

Great prep for calculus Jan 12, 2012
A beautiful presentation and treatment of all math required before studying calculus. Comprehensive, and a strong focus on theory. Lots of problems to test yourself. Get through this and then star in your calculus study, as you are now VERY well prepared.

One of the best Precal Books Oct 6, 2011
This book is one of the best out there in the current markets. Dr. Stewart explains this subject with geometrical shapes to better understand the subject. For example he explains and proves the the phytogorean theorem, laws of sines and cosines, and alot more. Highly recommend this book as well as his other ones like college algebra and calculus. He is an expert in this subjects. The best way to master a theorem in math is to prove and applied its existence and this book aims at teaching this principles.
