A college textbook which works toward retaining the efficiencies afforded by combining beginning and intermediate algebra, and avoiding the pitfalls, e.g. getting too difficult too fast and neglecting to include enough beginning algebra so that students who transfer to another college during the year know the basics. The first six chapters provide a full course in beginning algebra, after which intermediate topics are introduced. A quick review of basic topics is provided for those who begin in the second half of the book. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
