Format: Paperback
Students, teachers and parents alike will appreciate the application-oriented focus of this book, which reviews basic geometry and trigonometric functions and pairs explanations of these basics with practical applications. This adds new life and depth to the process of review for those who've had the math before, but want to brush up.

Excellent trig book Feb. 23 2008
By Ms. Upnorth - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book and Trignometry for Dummies to help me prepare for my first trig exam in college. My professor is good, but his explanations aren't always clear and I really needed something to bridge the gap. This book does an excellent job of explaining not only HOW to do things, but WHY. It's even better than the textbook I was required to buy for the class. As for the other book, Trig for Dummies, it's just doesn't hold a candle to this one.

Non-comprehensive June 8 2010
By Michelle Perry - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A little background on my situation. I need to pass (preferably with an "A")college trigonometry in order to obtain my degree. Math has always been my weak area. I had attempted to take it about a year and a half ago, and it didn't end well. I ended up dropping the class.
Since then, I have decided to barge into the mathematics world once again in order to properly defeat trigonometry. My plan was to get a comprehensive book on trig and learn everything during the summer; then, I won't feel so behind and lost in class. I choose this book due to the great reviews.
I'm on page 50. It's not what I expected at all. It goes into great detail on the easy topics and hardly does anything on the difficult ones. It doesn't show all the steps to solving the math. It doesn't explain how to use your calculator along with the equations (i.e. When do you press cos, sin, tan, cot, etc. in the equations?).
This book reminds me of borrowing notes from someone that is doing really well in class.It doesn't really teach you what's going on, but if you know what's going on, it could come in handy. I think perhaps when I am getting assignments, and I want to better understand it, this book will be useful. However, it's not capable of TEACHING. It's more like a handy reminder for people who already know. The description for it, I feel, was inaccurate. I think I'm going to invest in Dummies. Sigh.

It is pretty good, considering very few trig titles out there Jan. 16 2012
By Marc Mest - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am not a big fan of the Mastering Math series. The author just does not have a style of writing that is conducive to learning. The organization of the books does not follow the typical pattern of textbooks.

Though this title, the Trig book, is better than the others by the same author.

First, it does lack exercises as others have pointed out, and the author's writing style is confusing at times.

However, I at least can understand the author's organization of the subject. Which is simply to lay a foundation and build on it. And it succeeds.

There is a nice review of Geometry to start with, and the topics are laid out in a logical progression.

The author uses the standard examples that Trig textbooks generally cover, and a few others which really are helpful. However, the biggest selling point is that the author provides the tools to help you understand the applications and build problem solving skills of your own.

Honestly this is probably the only useful Trig study guide on the market. So by default it is the best. Avoid the Dummies books.

I do not recommend the other titles in the "Mastering Math" series, but this one is at least wothwhile. So it gets the benefit of the doubt and 4 stars.

Exceptional Book For Motivated People April 14 2012
By Graphics Guy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I work in 3d graphics and have gotten into python scripting for more custom effects. My electronics hobby also flat-lined due to a barrier in math. I needed a good trig book to remedy these issues and this was it. Suddenly my limitations in these two areas are disappearing. The book goes into great depth - with plenty of emphasis on the areas I happened to need it for. Great real-world examples of electricity and wave phenomena, plus everything I needed in graphing and coordinates as it relates to 3d. I didn't notice anything about the author being dry, but I'm used to "just the facts" with most of the research I do. I love seeing all of these things with an understanding for a change.
