Excellent math textbook March 20, 2011
My daughter had always loved math but from last year she became bored by the math curriculum her college uses. I purchased this book and after only four chapters she's engrossed in math again! She's already seeing how the techniques help her in her math work. She is now probably the top math student in her class. I'm very pleased with this book. It makes math fun to my daughter again!
