Review of Beginning Algebra: A Text/Workbook
Editorial review
Exceptionally clear and accessible, this bestselling introductory
text/workbook for elementary algebra is appropriate for lecture
courses, learning centers, labs and selfpaced courses. Written
in a clear and concise style, this book offers all the review,
drill and practice students need to develop proficiency in algebra.
In a lectureformat class, each section of the book can be discussed
in a fortyfive to fiftyminute class session. In a selfpaced
situation, the "Practice Problems" in the margins
the student to become actively involved with the material before
working the problems in the "Problem Set." This
text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this
title.

Algebra has never come easy. I do not think it is meant to be
so. After using the above textbook in at a community college
Elementary Algebra class I now have a clearer understanding
of algebraic functions. The textbook at first appears to have
excessive practice problems, but these worked out for my benefit
as I worked every single one of them. Remember, "practice
makes perfect" and the more you practice at this level
the better it will be for you in future algebra courses. My
compliments to the author for this exceptional textbook. It
is clearly written for the nonalgebra mind to understand. I
would highly recommend this textbook to anyone, especially to
those of us who are algebraically challenged.
Review of Introduction to Algebra
Editorial review
Based on the author's years of teaching experience, this textbook
provides undergraduates with a clear and carefully paced introduction
to abstract algebra. It begins with groups and rings, developing
important concepts thoroughly before moving on to subrings,
homomorphisms, and ideals. Later chapters then introduce a number
of more advanced topics, including simple groups and extensions,
Noetherian rings, universal algebra, lattices, categories, Galois
theory, and coding theory. The author has included a chapter
on constructing the number systems, where he gives three different
proofs that transcendental numbers exist.

Peter J. Cameron's "Introduction to Algebra" is exactly
that, an introduction to algebra and a good one at that. I must
confess that before reading this book had a very limited knowledge
of abstract algebra however with a little bit of time and effort
I am now quite comfertable with the subject thanks to this book."Algebra"
is divided into a 8 sections: 1) Set Theory and Relation Theory
2) Ring Theory 3) Group Theory 4) Vector Spaces 5) Modules 6)
Numbers 7) More Rings and Groups 8) Galois theory and coding
theoryThis book succeeds by having an interesting writing style,
not being dry, and at the same time being very rigorous. The
rigor is always present and all proofs are carefully developed
however the "feel" of the subject is never lost as
Cameron strives to help the reader grasp the "shape"
of the algebraic structures that he introduces.This book has
a slightly wider scope than many introductory algebra books
however it succeeds in covering all of its topics well although
the sections on category theory and algebraic geometry are only
a page or two long and thus are only present to whet the reader's
interest. In addition, Cameron motivates the discussions by
drawing the topics together in the end in the applications chapter.
This chapter covers the basics of the commonly known Galois
theory and the less covered Coding theory which is one of the
backbones of the internet.Final: Buy this book for a good introduction.
I have borrowed a number of other introductory books from the
university up the hill but this one was the clearest for me.
Review of Intermediate Algebra with Applications
Editorial review
William Burnside was one of the three most important algebraists
who were involved in the transformation of group theory from
its nineteenthcentury origins to a deep twentiethcentury subject.
Building on work of earlier mathematicians, they were able to
develop sophisticated tools for solving difficult problems.
All of Burnside's papers are reproduced here, organized chronologically
and with a detailed bibliography. Walter Feit has contributed
a foreword, and a collection of introductory essays are included
to provide a commentary on Burnside's work and set it in perspective
along with a modern biography that draws on archive material.
Review of Undergraduate Algebra: A First Course
Editorial review
Designed for secondyear mathematics students, this book offers
a modern, highly systematic approach to thoroughly familiarize
students with the theory of rings, fields, vector spaces, and
particularly with the techniques of matrix manipulation. In
keeping the needs of the learner paramount, the author provides
motivation at each difficult point and integrates a wide range
of exercises into each chapter. The method is both strong in
its presentation of linear algebra and relevant to computer
science. This text refers to an out of print or unavailable
edition of this title.
Review of Introductory and Intermediate Algebra: A Combined Approach
Editorial review
This text is designed to provide an interactive learning experience
between the learner and the exposition, annotated examples,
art, and the exercises you will find within. The first book
on the market to introduce a "learn as you go" approach
by including practice exercises in the margins of the text,
this best seller uses realdata applications to help apply mathematics
to your everyday life. Concepts and skills learned as you progress
through the text are revisited again and again in the form of
cumulative reviews, skill maintenance exercises, and synthesis
exercises to help you retain what you have learned and see how
it all relates together. This text refers to the Paperback
edition.

It's not an easy to use CD. (I even can't maximize the windows!)If
you're IE user, don't buy this. It requires Netscape and the
version included in this CD is 4.0. Check your ISP whether you
can use IE or Netscape before you use this CD. Just the text
is enough.
Review of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Graphs and Models
Editorial review
This text covers both elementary and intermediate algebra topics
while eliminating the repetition of instruction inherent in
using two separate texts. Bittinger and Barbara L. Johnson (both
associated with Indiana U.), and David J. Ellenbogen (Community
College of Vermont) present 12 chapters that open with an application
illustrated with both technology windows and situational art.
The included graphing calculator manual uses actual examples
and exercises from the text and contains keystrokelevel instruction
for the Texas Instruments TI 82/83+, TI86, and TI89.Book
