Prepare. Practice. Review. Mike Sullivan's time-tested approach focuses students on the fundamental skills they need for the course: preparing for class, practicing with homework, and reviewing the concepts. The Tenth Edition has evolved to meet today's course needs. MyMathLab not included. Students, if MyMathLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyMathLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. MyMathLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them absorb course material and understand difficult concepts. With this new edition, Mike Sullivan has developed MyMathLab features to help better prepare students and get them thinking more visually and conceptually. Features like Getting Ready exercises, Video Assessment exercises Enhanced Graphing Functionality and Skills for Success modules benefit student learning. Also, by implementing the New! Guided Lecture notes that focus students on the important concepts and help structure studying, students will have the most effective tools to succeed.
