My math tutor Loves it.

I am learning math with a tutor. This book is a required course in the future and I want to be prepared. My tutor loves this book, she says it is very precise and she likes how it is written.


Thank you for the fast delivery. I received the book just in time for class.

Excellent companion to textbook

So it's been awhile since you delved into mathematics and you need a thorough review with explanations that are easy to follow - then this companion book to the textbook, Using and Understanding Mathematics, is just the thing. I suggest using the explanations in this study guide after you've read the lesson in the textbook, before you begin working problems, as the study guide has excellent material. Avoid peeking at the answers until you have given yourself a chance to really think it through. Remember how good it feels to get an ah-ha! when you are working on a problem!

Great transaction!

This was a great transaction. The text book was received before the latest date and was in good condition.

User Friendly 2nd Ed. Essential for Survey of Mathematics

Extremely User friendly text, be sure you are getting 2nd edition and not first, they are not the same!!! Uses real life examples to explain various mathematical models, a book you'll want to hold on to for future use.

WoW! A math book for the mathmatically impaired!!!

I bought this book over a year ago for a class I had to take. I would have to say that this book is the best learning tool I have been able to use in understanding mathmatics. I was diagnosed with a math disability. This book has helped me with this disability. I am able to understand concepts and apply my understanding of those concepts.It has given me a self confidence I didn't think I would ever have. I have tried other texts and found them to be either to general in thier knowledge or poor in thier use of the english language. I found this book to be very descriptive and helps the student to paint a picture of what problems they may face in the world of mathmatics. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has had a hard time with spatial ability. The detailed step by step process is wonderful. It covers an array of subjects. I still use it to help me through other classes. I have found it to be the only book detailed enough to teach me properly. It is the best college book I have ever had to buy. I really have gotten my dollars worth out of it.
