The Wosre Textbook

By Bluemath on Sep 07, 2010

This is the worse textbook. Not to mention the errors in this textbook. It intends to cover every concept in one textbook. The truth is no one could finish it in a full year. Only teachers don't teach and skip a lot could finish "teaching" it in a year. A teacher cares about how much students could learn in a year should never use this textbook. It is really sad to see many schools using it. Are those teachers knew about teaching Math?

rec'd it quick

It was nice to find a book because all my class had was the online version Now I'd like to see how I can send it back and some other person can used it

Typically Poor Approach to Teaching Mastery of Concept

By James D. Nickel on May 22, 2012

Textbooks like this are a waste of time for the student and, by consequence, the teacher. Too many topics, too much information, too many pages. No teacher can get through this material in one year. It is a recipe for incomplete mastery of the key concepts (not topics) that need to be mastered before commencing Calculus.
