I got this book to finish my algebra requirement and it has really helped me...plus I have a talented instructor. Although I find the book a great asset, I think the author has tried too hard to explain things with too many details. All the labels and arrows are hard to follow and do more to confuse the student. I have learned not to rely too heavily on the answer key in the back due to a number of errors we have found. Use the answer key as a tool to learn and get the student solutions manual that goes with this textbook. But watch for mistakes in there too.
