"Elementary Algebra is a welcome addition to the choices of texts currently available . . . [it] is well written . . . a 'user-friendly' text for students."

"I was impressed with the accent on technology and the introduction to scientific calculators. And the Key Concept feature is great! I still remember being frustrated when I was a student in being unable to see the 'big picture' and felt as though I were memorizing in a vacuum."

"This book is well written with excellent problem sets. The problem sets are some of the best I have seen; they are motivating and interesting."

"I find the explanations, examples, and self-study exercises to be extremely well written. I was pleased to see the abundance of interesting 'real-life' problems and examples. I feel an outstanding feature of this text and the Prealgebra text are the study sets; the quality of the exercise sets . . . [are] the best I have encountered for this level course."
