Written for students in need of an algebra refresher, this supplemental book is a convenient source of reference and review for students enrolled in an applied calculus course. It is a quick, easy-to-use resource that provides "just-in-time" algebra review for only those algebra topics that are most essential to the study of applied calculus, as well as most other college level quantitative courses. The author speaks directly to the student, providing numerous examples to illustrate the concepts and enough exercises to build proficiency. While this book can be used with any applied calculus text on the market, special discounts exist when bundled with a Thomson Brooks/Cole text.
