Considering this is the fifth edition, I am very displeased to see the amount of errors in the answer key for the review exercises. Furthermore, I have contacted the publisher via their website to try to receive the teacher answer key for the revision tests, but have yet to hear back from them. It's a problematic system because I am using the book for self-study.
That being said, it's a decent overview of basic mathematics necessary for preparation for an engineering program.
This does not help when you have little confidence in maths, as i sat there for hours trying to work out what I was doing wrong, only for my maths tutor to come along and say I am right and the book is wrong!!
If i could give this book minus stars I would, its going straight in the bin!!
