In order to learn your subject more effectively there are a number of ways to go by products: Buy a software tool with questions, answers and a mathematical engine to calculate interactively for you, step by step with additional graphical representation or run a software tool as Maple 6 or Maple 7 ( a CAS ( Computer Algebra System ) ) or buy a problem solver book in addition to your textbook.
Although Maple is an advanced tool that covers almost all you ever need in education its evaluation techniques differs on major points completely from the way you would do (evaluate for educational purposes) mathematics on paper introducing also a number of programmatic structures which is highly complex because of how Maple evaluates. For instance a function specification in Maple is not a function altogether:what you've learn or have learned in school.
Maple is therefore more or less excluded from eduction in college level mathematics and I would say also in higher eduction since it impose to much time to learn properly and is to error prone to use even after extensive reading of the supplied tutorial at the products website.
Therefore a choice between a learning tool or additional book is to prefer.
The problem solver is a powerful tool for learning since it stresses on focusing from several points of views regarding type problems. It also facilitates a repetitive learning experience.
Each chapter is dedicated to a certain subject area. Back in the index is a complete list of keywords with referenced problem numbers after them.
The Question is immidietly followed by an explanatory answer which solves the problem, sometimes in several different ways.
Read the textbook first then do the stuff in the problem solver.

Of all the investments that I have made, this book is defiantely one of the best. I bought this book as a guide to help me review my Math skills since I wasn't able to take a Math course my Senior year. Since I had not done any real dificult Math problems in over a year I was quite rusty. This book helped me so much with it's step by step guidence with each problem. I was able to see where I had made mistakes, which helped me work out other Math problems. Since buying the book I have taken a Math placement test and am proud to annouce that I am now enrolled in an advanced Math course. A course I know would not have been made available to me without the help of this book.

This book is very good for getting up to speed in algebra. If you have not taken algebra in a while, this book will help you in evaluating your progress. An important feature is that sample solutions are explained in incremental steps. The explanations pertain more to technique than to the theory behind the problems. I first brush up on a topic in a general algebra text and then use this book to reinforce the concepts. Another benefit of this book is that solving problem after problem gives one a sense of accomplishment that may get side-tracked in other textbooks.

This book is great if you want to brush up on algebraic skills and it involves a step by step process for each solution. It is a great solution guide except for one little flaw: it does not contain much graphing. As I am myself in an algebra class, I know that you must be able to graph many different types of equations, and this book doesn't cover graphing thoroughly. Otherwise, it is a great book and i recommend it for anyone who really needs help in algebra.

very useful for reference and problem solving technique. Sept. 3 2007
By C. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really like this book. It shows you how to "think" as you are doing the problem and the methodology used to arrive at the problem. I often get textbooks and see the example and it works fine and I can do a problem if its JUST LIKE THAT but then the author gets cute and changes everything about the problem so that it is unrecognizable as the problem you just learned how to solve and then you are stuck again. This problem helps me with stuff like that.
