4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Precalculus Reference
With the sixth edition of this textbook, Sullivan has made significant strides since the fifth edition of the College Algebra portion. The interval notations used to indicate the regions where the value of a function is increasing or decreasing is so much more clear and concise. In contrast to the former use of frequently displaying number lines with pluses and minuses underneath, in which the readings of them were perhaps more of an exercise for the eyes than for the mind, Sullivan revised this mess using parentheses and brackets to indicate test intervals.

As a teacher, I say that this is not the most user-friendly book for an instructor who teaches one hour college algebra classes three times a week. Oftentimes, for me to quickly get the fundamentals across, I have to paraphrase what Sullivan lays out in many of the sections. The language is often too theoretical for several of my students (Many are in non-technical majors but have to complete college algebra as a last mathematics course requirement), and I have to put the symbolic logic sequences into terms that can cross over to applied mathematics. This is not meant to be a criticism, however.

Perhaps the main weaknesses lie in the shortcomings of applied problems, particularly in the sections concerning maxima and minima, and especially in the inequality segments. On a very positive note, however, I will grant that the sixth chapter, which involves logarithms and exponents is quite fascinating. For instance, you have applied problems involving the amount of interest that can be gained after so many years if, say, [money amount]is deposited into an account and accumulates interest at 6% compounded quarterly. Physics problems are also well presented. One interesting tidbit: if you wondered how long it would take for a 300-degree dish to cool down to 100 degrees in an environment that is at room temperature, the formula that can be used, namely Newton's Law of Cooling, is provided. As another example: suppose that a dead animal was discovered in a barn at midnight and its temperature was 80°F° ; the temperature of the barn is kept constant at 60°F; two hours later the temperature of the corpse dropped to 75°F; find the time of death. The formula for this type of problem is also shown.

As added kudos, I especially like the intermittent TI-83 calculator tips. The use of technology in mathematics classes is notably increasing in the community colleges. All in all, this is a finer, more updated version, and it is especially recommended for those who want to go beyond the call of duty and discover new ways of applying mathematics to their daily lives.

5-0 out of 5 stars Please read this review!!!!
1)Michael Sullivan (Sr.) is one of the four or five best writers
of math textbooks on today's scene. If you can find a textbook written by him that fits whatever current math course you are in
buy the book sight unseen. You will be more than happy that you
did.
2)As far as this book is concerned, I used it from chapter 1 to the end (every section of every chapter) and did every problem in
the book. I did not have an instructor and I was not enrolled in a course. I used the book to brush up for calculus after being out of school for 20 years.
3)This book is great for a course in college algebra, trigonometry, or precalculus. It serves all three purposes. I know this because after I finished the text and began studying
calculus, on my own, I was really able to appreciate how well
Sullivan's book prepared me for calculus.
4)The explanations of each concept are clear, not more rigorous
than is appropriate for a student at the level of the textbook,
but certainly not dumbed down.
5)The problems and questions are well written, comprehensive, and
most importantly, instructive. I found that the best question I
could ask myself about every problem in the book was "now what is
Sullivan trying to get me to see by doing this problem or answering this question". I mention this because this is what Sullivan is really good at; he doesn't spoon feed you.
6)Look, we all want essentially the same things from a textbook.
We want clearly written, well illustrated worked out problems
that allow us to grasp the concept in question so that we can use
it to solve problems and answer conceptual questions. With Sullivan, you get this in great measure.
This is a wonderful textbook for both sudents and teachers. It is
a great book to learn from and a great book to learn to teach from.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well laid out
One feature I really liked about this book was the "Now work on Problem #..." items, which give you a specific exercise to work on in that section to make sure you understand the concept just covered. Also, the author has highlighted certain exercise problems for a suggested practice test. These are great if you already know some of the material you can just breeze through these until you get stuck on something. The paperback solutions manual was also excellent, I used it a lot since I was teaching myself.

4-0 out of 5 stars BE CAREFUL
This book is NOT the textbook. It is simply the student solutions manual. The textbook is the hardcovered version. It does not come in paperback. This book you are viewing is the student solutions manual ONLY!!! Make sure it's what you want.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just so you know
The softcover version of this book, ISBN 0-13-081021-5, is the "Student Solutions Manual." This is NOT a softcover version of the hardcover book. It's an awesome 697 pages of detailed solutions, not just the answers, to the odd numbered problems from the hardcover book. I definitely recommend this book. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good layout, good book
A good book overall, but could be better. The explanations given by the author were difficult to understand at times, but not so difficult that you couldn't understand it after working through them a few times and doing the questions. It was still hard to get over some of their logic jumps and unexplained assumptions, though.
I thought this book used the best possible layout to build upon principles, chapter by chapter. I really didn't feel that any chapter was too easy or too difficult. A lot of thought went into planning the book so the information was learnable, but like I said above, the explanations didn't always effectively teach the information needed to solve the problems.

1-0 out of 5 stars I'm waiting for my book!
HEY I HAVE TWO WEEKS WAITING! I REALLY NEED MY BOOK!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book !
A Must have Pre Calculus Book. I'm really satisfied with the text. Author did a great job explaning whole different aspects of pre cal. He gives nice slick introduction to Limits to prepare you for calculus. My teacher wasnt so great, I dont know how I could have made it in class with any other book. I'm never selling this book. Its a best Math book so far for me. Highly recommended !

5-0 out of 5 stars Very user- friendly
This book is very well laid out. It has easy to follow examples in the introduction to the chapters. After each example, you are referred to a homework problem patterned after the example. As you read the introduction, it explains how to solve a particular problem then refers you to say problem 7. If you then go and work problem 7, the ideas you just read are fresh in your mind and and get cemented even more because you are then applying the concept or method you just learned. Its a great way to begin recognizing types of problems and how to go about solving them. I am very pleased over all. I just wish I could get a hold of the solutions manual for this particular edition.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Spectacular
I used this book in a semester trigonometry course (covering Chapters 1 through 8), and the book was not the best.First of all, some lessons contained too much information and some too little.In addition, although the exercises are worthwhile, their difficulty levels differ from question to question, so there is no gradual increase in skill and difficulty.The book only provided good explanations on a couple of topics (for example, inverse trig. functions).All in all, the book is "okay"; if you have a good instructor, you'll still learn trigonometry.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good if you are NOT majoring in Math or Engineering
This book really lacks proper theory and instruction. The book focuses more on giving you problems than it does trying to explain the principle and aspect covered in Trigonometry. If you are are looking for a book that can help you out by giving you work(math problems), this is it. Otherwise, stay clear of this book, find a book that has more instructions, more theories, simply more.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellentbooks
I bought the book to teach my 15 year old
son trigonometry and it is fantastic.
It has so many clear examples to illustrate
the concepts.
You can't go wrong with this book.

Like all math books, this one is just an aid in the classroom. The main source of information is the instructor. This book has really good excersices. The layout is very clear clear. Dont listen to negative reviews, its probably their instructors

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
Although it is of much help, to which the book lacks, it was disappointing to say the least. It did little to help simplify the understanding of the book; yet without it, one is much worse. If one needs to take trigonometry, this book will attempt to help, but lacks in great assistance. ... Read more

This book pretends to be an Algebra 1 textbook, but is more of a calculator instruction manual. A child who completes a course based upon this book will be highly proficient in the use of his or her calculator, but will not have gained an iota of mathmatical skill or knowledge. If you are considering this book, I suggest you pull the instruction book from the box your calculator came in, it is just as useful and not near as heavy. On the upside, the book has lots of pretty colors.

Book Description

The Fourth Edition of College Trigonometry helps students see the dynamic link between concepts and applications. The authors' hallmark approach, the Aufmann Interactive Method, encourages students to interact with math by presenting an annotated example, then guiding students with a Try Exercise, and finally presenting a worked-out solution for immediate reinforcement of the concept.

  • An Instructor's Annotated Edition, unlike any other offered for this course, features reduced student text pages with special instructor resources in the margins: teaching tips, extra examples, ideas for reinforcing concepts, discussion suggestions, highlighted vocabulary and symbols, challenge problems, quizzes, suggested assignments, and references to transparencies that may be found both in the Instructor's Resource Manual and on the web site.
  • Side-by-Side Solutions to examples pair an algebraic solution and a graphical representation to accommodate different learning styles.
  • Integrated web resources include selected Take Note boxes (identified by a special web icon) which direct students to an interactive example or a downloadable file on the web site. These special resources can be used by instructors for presentation purposes or can be assigned to students to help them 'visualize' a concept.
  • Exploring Concepts with Technology, a special end-of-chapter feature, expands on ideas introduced in the text by using technology to investigate extended mathematical applications or topics.
  • Projects at the end of each exercise set are designed to encourage students (or groups of students) to research and write about mathematics and its applications. Additional Projects are included in the Instructor's Resource Manual and on the book's web site.
  • Take Note and Math Matters (formerly called Point of Interest) margin notes alert students about interesting aspects of math history, applications, and points that require special attention.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best math book I've seen--period.
This is THE math book for those preparing for the calculus or (like me) revisiting the subject. The book is clear, concise, and stands up well to heavy use. Additionally, the book has tons of examples; contains sections A & B for each chapter. The 'A' section is all that is necessary to continue to calculus, but 'B' will enhance learning if you choose to delve deeper. The study guide that accompanies the book is absolutely excellent--an average student like me can go through the whole book without an instructor if aided by the study guide. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Handy Little Summary
After several years in a corporate engineering job, I started moonlighting as a math tutor. The Cliff's Quick Review Guides are wonderful to have in my "back pocket" when I need to quickly look something up that is covered in dust in the "archives of my brain."

5-0 out of 5 stars Great series... Great book.
I'm a (returning :P) university Freshman preparing for the College Board CLEP tests. I was already familiar with the material covered in this book, but needed to refresh my memory. This review turned out to be *exactly* what I needed.

The author's ability to explain the material to the student are just shy of enlightening. The discussions & theorem proofs are written in a very concise, clear style.

I'm a big advocate of the Cliff's QuickReview series. Intended as a course supplement, these books are also *GREAT* for students wanting to refine their skills. Most of them are also very accessible to students with less familiarity on the subject; trying to learn it for the first time.

After reading this, I bought the Calculus & Differential Equations QuickReviews & I'm looking forward to reading them! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A step at a time
Well laid out book, taking you a step at a time through trigonometry.Frequent reviews of material from previous chapters enables you to stay in touch with the full subject so you can be ready for the cumulative final.Author does a good job of trying to find real world examples, which is not easy.

3-0 out of 5 stars A little too late
Pretty easy to follow at some points but suddenly the books throws things at you and expects you to "discover" how to solve it.The answer and the easiest way to approach the answer shows up in the next or following sections/chapters.I shouldn't be wasting my time trying to discover something that was discovered centuries ago.Had I not taken a self-paced course, I probably would not have been dissapointed by the book.The instructor would have helped. Also, some references for the HP calc. would have been nice.

5-0 out of 5 stars good book
This is a good book, with decent summaries and reference points.Neatly organized unlike my current Calc book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well written text with original examples and applications
This trig book covers all the basics of trigonometry without watering it down with too much algebra. Applications like the human cannonball andothers hold the students interest.

2-0 out of 5 stars this book is awful
This book is an awful book. The examples given are bad examples and most are not like the questions which makes it hard to understand. ... Read more
