Review of Intermediate Algebra: Concepts and Graphs
This text, written by best-selling developmental mathematics author Pat McKeague, features a more streamlined review of elementary algebra, allowing for earlier coverage of intermediate topics. An early introduction to graphing presents the foundation for a wide variety of graphing problems throughout the text. Early coverage of functions helps students feel comfortable with the many examples and graphs of functions that occur in later chapters. Optional technology sections are integrated throughout the text, as a way for students to better understand the material being discussed. INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA: CONCEPTS AND GRAPHS, 4/e is ideal for professors who want a condensed review of elementary algebra, and more time to spend on new topics. The new DIGITAL VIDEO COMPANION student CD-ROM, packaged with the text, offers an excellent tutorial featuring the author.
Review of Fundamentals of Algebraic Modeling
This text is for students in a two-year Associate in Arts curriculum who are not planning additional course work in mathematics. Material is written in accessible language for students who have been previously intimidated by mathematics. Problems in graphical, numerical, and symbolic formats are included, as well as laboratory exercises and calculator mini-lessons, with answers provided for all problems. A background in fundamental algebra is assumed. This third edition eliminates some elementary algebra background material.

Review of Intermediate Algebra: Applications and Problem Solving
Author David Weltman's fourth edition of Intermediate Algebra offers students complete coverage of topics such as Linear Equations and Inequalities, Exponential and Radical Expressions, Relations and Functions and many more. This challenging algebra text requires students to comprehend information presented by providing over 7,000 problems for students to complete. Intermediate Algebra also assists students in associating the fundamental topics of algebra with real world data through its featured "internet connections" and encourages class participation and involvement through "group activities."

I studied this book, and it was fantastic! When I picked this book up, it had been awhile since I'd taken a math class. I was going back to college, and I didn't want to have to take Algebra all over again, so I reviewed Algebra extensively, using this book. When I took Precalculus classes, I encountered subject matter from time to time that I hadn't seen for quite awhile. Often, my recollection of such material was shaky, so I'd review it in this book again, and get back up to speed. I got an A in both classes.

i find that this book does a good job to helpteh students learn algebra, as well as aplicatoin to realy life through the varios word questions which reffer to real life situations. i find this book beyond satisfactory for learning math, and helps the students to be prepared for the SAT test.
Review of Elementary Algebra: Structure and Use
This text is intended for a beginning or elementary algebra course offered at both two- and four-year schools. Elementary Algebra Structure and Use is an introductory text for students with either no background in algebra or for those students who need review before proceeding further. New accessible four-color design and an expanded graphics program make the book more visually appealing and reinforce critical concepts. Student success and anxiety reduction are achieved through a non-threatening, informal writing style and the use of numerous pedagogical aids (e.g., examples with "matched problems," annotations, think boxes, new chapter summaries, and cumulative reviews). The text is designed to smooth the transition from arithmetic to algebra by gradually developing algebraic concepts, manipulations, and applications. There are 6,400 graded problems which range from easy and routine to challenging and conceptual. The inclusion of a large quantity and variety of significant and interesting real-world applications should convince even the most skeptical students that algebra can be extremely useful.
Review of College Algebra: A Graphing Approach
Mathematical reform is the driving force behind the organization and development of this new college algebra text. The use of technology, primarily graphing utilities, is assumed throughout the text. The development of each topic proceeds from the concrete to the abstract and takes full advantage of technology, wherever appropriate. The first major objective of this book is to encourage students to investigate mathematical ideas and processes graphically and numerically, as well as algebraically. Proceeding in this way, students gain a broader, deeper, and more useful understanding of a concept or process. Even though concept development and technology are emphasized, manipulative skills are not ignored, and plenty of opportunities to practice basic skills are present. A brief look at the table of contents will reveal the importance of the function concept as a unifying theme. The second major objective of this book is the development of a library of elementary functions, including their important properties and uses. Having this library of elementary functions as a basic working tool in their mathematical tool boxes, students will be able to move into calculus with greater confidence and understanding. In addition, a concise review of basic algebraic concepts is included in Appendix A for easy reference, or systematic review. The third major objective of this book is to give the student substantial experience in solving and modeling real world problems. Enough applications are included to convince even the most skeptical student that mathematics is really useful. Most of the applications are simplified versions of actual real-world problems taken from professional journals and professional books. No specialized experience is required to solve any of the applications.
