This book has been hard for me to understand, however I have been giving it more time and things are improving. This book just takes more time to understand the concepts, which isn't uncommon for college math books.






Precalculus : Mathematics for Calculus: 3 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

This best selling author team explains concepts simply and clearly, without glossing over difficult points. Problem solving and mathematical modeling are introduced early and reinforced throughout, providing students with a solid foundation in the principles of mathematical thinking. Comprehensive and evenly paced, the book provides complete coverage of the function concept, and integrates a significant amount of graphing calculator material to help students develop insight into mathematical ideas. The authors' attention to detail and clarity, the same as found in James Stewart's market-leading Calculus text, is what makes this text the market leader.
