This text provides an algebra review for students in an applied calculus course, covering those algebra topics essential in applied calculus and in most other college-level quantitative courses. Each chapter begins with a pretest to assess skills, includes many exercises, and concludes with a posttest. Most exercises should be done without a calculator. Topics such as functions, inverses, and parabolas are omitted, since most applied calculus texts review these topics in detail. Students should already be familiar with elementary ideas from algebra.
