Gets them engaged. Keeps them engaged. Bob Blitzer's use of realistic applications instantly piques students' curiosity about the presence of mathematical concepts in the world around them. These applications are apparent throughout the entire program-from his relatable examples, friendly writing style, and thought-provoking features in the textbook, to the enhanced digital resources in the MyMathLab course. Blitzer pulls from topics that are relevant to college students, often from pop culture and everyday life, to ensure that students will actually use their learning resources to achieve success. With an expansion of the series to now include a Developmental Math "all-in-one" text (with content spanning prealgebra through intermediate algebra), and with an enhanced media program accompanying this revision, developmental students at all levels will see how math applies to their daily lives and culture. Also available with MyMathLab MyMathLab(R) is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.

tHIS IS NOT THE COVER Of the book. Its orange and has a bottle cap on the cover. BUUT this book is great. It clearly lists the steps and reasons for the math eq. and such. Although I DESPISE the ANSWER KEY in the back because it only lists the answers for ODD NUMBERS. Other than that, the condition is great and the text is as well

Good Math Book
I have the instructor's version, which helped me a lot because once you went through the process of doing the math problem, you could verify if you did it right.

Exactly as described
Buying this book saved me over $100 from what my school bookstore charged and it is perfect. Thank you

Unfortunately, this text was required for my class. I got to use the Lial series for PreAlgebra, and I will get to for Intermediate as well. They are much better for those who need more examples, description, worked problems, etc. This one assumes you know a lot.
