This is a very useful textbook. I purchased it for a math class. It offers a clear writing style that helps reduce any math anxiety they may have while developing their problem-solving skills. The book arrived in great condition. No marks, folds, or bends; as far as my eye can see. Speedy delivery! Decently priced; definitely cheaper than buying from the schools bookstore. If you're looking for a quality used book, you can trust this seller.

Summary

Engineers looking for an accessible approach to calculus will appreciate Young's introduction. The book offers a clear writing style that helps reduce any math anxiety they may have while developing their problem-solving skills. It incorporates Parallel Words and Math boxes that provide detailed annotations which follow a multi-modal approach. Your Turn exercises reinforce concepts by allowing them to see the connection between the exercises and examples. A five-step problem solving method is also used to help engineers gain a stronger understanding of word problems.
