### Summary

Authored by Faires and DeFranza. Besides providing complete solutions to all odd-numbered exercises in the text, this guide includes additional material for students who want a more intensive review of algebra and trigonometry. The Study Guide also includes two copies of an examination - one copy to be taken at the beginning of the course to test their readiness for PreCalculus and a second copy to be used at the end of the course so students can assess their improvement and readiness for calculus.
