This book is so-so.  October 7, 2011

I will admit I'm not the best math student, but this book is pretty confusing. It's not the best organized book either. But it did get me through MA 109 class with a B. For that I will rate it 3 stars.

Summary

Mike Sullivan#x19;stime-tested approach focuses students on the fundamental skills they need for the course: preparingfor class, practicingwith homework, and reviewingthe concepts. In the Ninth Edition, College Algebrahas evolved to meet today#x19;s course needs, building on these hallmarks by integrating projects and other interactive learning tools for use in the classroom or online.

Author Biography

Michael Sullivan, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at Chicago State University, received a Ph.D. in mathematics from the Illinois Institute of Technology. Mike taught at Chicago State for 35 years before recently retiring. He is a native of Chicago’s South Side and divides his time between a home in Oak Lawn IL and a condo in Naples FL.

 

Mike is a member of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America. He is a past president of the Text and Academic Authors Association and is currently Treasurer of its Foundation. He is a member of the TAA Council of Fellows and was awarded the TAA Mike Keedy award in 1997 and the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. In addition, he represents TAA on the Authors Coalition of America.

 

Mike has been writing textbooks for more than 35 years and currently has 15 books in print, twelve with Pearson Education. When not writing, he enjoys tennis, golf, gardening, and travel.

 

Mike has four children: Kathleen, who teaches college mathematics; Michael III, who also teaches college mathematics, and who is his coauthor on two precalculus series; Dan, who is a sales director for Pearson Education; and Colleen, who teaches middle-school and secondary school mathematics. Twelve grandchildren round out the family.
