With the same design and feature sets as the market leading Precalculus, 8/e, this concise book provides users with sound, consistently structured explanations of the mathematical concepts. PRECALCULUS: A CONCISE COURSE is designed to offer a cost-effective, one-semester alternative to the traditional two-semester precalculus text. It contains the features that have made the Larson/Hostetler series a complete solution for users: interesting applications, pedagogically effective design, and innovative technology combined with an abundance of carefully developed examples with worked-out solutions and exercises.
