4-0 out of 5 stars pretty good
This was the main textbook used for my Calculus AB class. Its explanations are clear, though sometimes difficult steps in algebraic manipulation are skipped (which may initially confuse but can be figured out after some additional work). The text progresses within each chapter, relying initially on an exploratory section where concepts are not directly stated but figured out through a little guidance with the questions. This first section introduces the readers to the concept being studied in each respective chapter. Then, the information is given in ensuing sections of the chapter. The best part of this text is the "green boxes" which sum up concepts learned, definitions, formulas, etc., which make reviewing for a final exam a much simpler task. It has a simple presentation with few colors, sticking mainly to a light olive green and gray for the pictures and other illustrations. This textbook is a very good tool for calculus students, relying on varied methods of learning and some self-discovery of the subject matter.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
This is a great book, I used it in my Pre-Cal and BC Cal class. It's very easy to understand, and easy to get into Calculus class!

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent book from an excellent teacher.
This book made a difficult subject (calculus) easy to understand through its effective use of diagrams, examples, and word problems.Iwould not have been able to survive Calculus BC AP without it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best learning tool ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the single most best learning book for math that i ever read. I am starting collage and math is a requirement for my major. I have been out of school for 20 years and my math was very rusty. This book goes into great detail on the why and how too of everything in algebra. Anyone who doesn`t know anything about algebra if he or she was given this book will have a great understanding of algebra. if you have a son or daughter and wish them to learn algebra this is the book for you/them. It is a book that uses word instead of usless/vague examples that teach you nothing. only after the auther fully explains why something is done a math example is shown to put it into context. I hope they make a book on geometry and trig. i bought their book on calculus. I wish that all math books had more text instead of usless math examples. and teachers that understood that explanation of a problem instead of trial and error is a much better aproach. I would have given this book 1,000 stars if possible.I will always be gratefull to the authors of this book. Thank you very much for your hard work and understanding. Over all if you want a strong understanding of algebra buy this book!!!!!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Math for Readers
If you have a daughter who loves to read but hates math, BUY HER THIS BOOK. She will soon be laughing instead of crying over her math homework, and she'll understand not just how to do math but why the rules work.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than elementary
This book, I must say, is very good companion for any high school or middle school students who want to master the subject. I like this intermediate algebra better than the elementary one--simply more interesting. But to well prepare yourself for college math/algebra, you only need this book: the most useful problem or resource book that I have ever read in English :
5-0 out of 5 stars Very Happy
I purchased this book to makea quick review of Math and help my son. I am so happy that I will buy the entire collection from elementary Algebra to Calculus includingDifferencial equations, Geometry and Trigonometry. Great help for those who need a solid foundation in Math. You can't go wrong with Schaum's Outline.

5-0 out of 5 stars A highly useful supplement
If you're returning to college after a while and feel rusty, you should have a copy of this book.In it, you will find a concise, clear review of the theory, followed immediately by many problems with detailed solutions.Nothing is worse than in a math class than getting hung up on some idea during the semester.You will fall behind and probably not catch up.Try to work the problems, though, before looking at the answers.

1-0 out of 5 stars You do not NEED this book.
I have had the misfortune of teaching from this book and I have also had to take courses from this authors other more advanced math books.
1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Awful
This is the absolute worst text book I have ever had the misfortune of using, in any subject. Hungerford only provides part of the information you actually need to do the problems, and the answers in the back of the book are not reliable. I was forced to use this book for a class in college. If you have a similar misfortune, GET THE SUPPLEMENT. It is the only thing that will help to keep you sane. Make sure you check out the amazing resources availible online, like purplemath.com. This book sure won't be of any help. My professor is just like the author, so it made for a very difficult class.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book, although the images are not to my tastes
This book is different from many others, as the graphing calculator is an integral part of the instruction. A large number of the images are nothing more than what a graphing calculator will present when asked to plot a segment of a particular function. Since the material is standard precalculus, the decision whether to adopt this text will be largely based on your opinion concerning the role of graphing calculators in mathematics education.While there is no question that graphing calculators can be of help, they can also be a hindrance. Graphs are just another tool that enable us to better understand the concepts and are not a complete solution. All mathematicians are aware that diagrams can be inadequate and at times appear to be accurate when they are not.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not much on the core subject of abstract algebra
This book has some good theoretical mathematics content, unfortunately not much of it is about the subject of abstract algebra. The first 80 pages of this book talk about sets, relations, operators, and number systems. The next 50 pages or so consist of elementary material ongroups, rings, fields, and polynomials, and act as a very basic introduction to abstract algebra. Then the author again diverges off into mathematics that does not relate to abstract algebra and talks about vector spaces, matrices, matrix polynomials, linear algebra, and boolean algebra. Again, this is all good mathematical material with some good problems, but I don't see what it has to do with learning abstract algebra. A better title for this book would have been "Schaum's Outline on the Foundations of Mathematics" since it is really supplying a good theoretical introduction to mathematics for the mathematics major at about the college sophomore level. If that is what you are looking for, I would give this book about four stars.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great supplement
If you're taking a course in introductory modern algebra, you should have a copy of this book. As with many other Schaum's outline series books, you will find a concise, clear review of the theory, followed immediately by many problems with detailed solutions. My students tell me this Schaum's made a positive difference in their understanding. Beyond the introductory level, this book has limited use as it doesn't cover much of field and ring theory nor Galois theory very well.
3-0 out of 5 stars mm, not quite what I was hoping for...
This installment in the Schaum's outline series doesn't do it for me. I had reason to pick this one up simply out of curiousity (and out of habit, by usingother titles in this series for other lower-level undergraduate courses).It hardly stimulates any interest on the part ofthe reader; and the presentation is dry; not to mentionthat the selection of solved problems wasn't carefully thought out (most, I found, were proofs of some pretty standard results, which I would have rather not seen all over again). And the bare-hands computations weren't all that exciting,either.Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Parent of Student
Purchased this book because my daughter has had great success with the biology, english, and literature rea clep books. This book contained multiple errors that needless confused by daughter. I asked for an errata twice from the publisher but my requests were ignored. After studying this book my daughter received a 57 on the Algebra CLEP exam. At most schools this would have been high enough to receive credit, however her University required a score of 60 to receive credit. One area she found that the book did not cover as completely as needed was in factoring/simplifying polynomials and fractions based on polynomials. If you need a high score to receive credit (above 57) I would not recommend this book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Took a course from this book
I took a course out of this book last semester and I suffered greatly.An assignment of 5-10 problems can be expected to take an average student upwards of eight hours.The text is disorganized (as a previous reviewer noted) and more important, overly formal.Mathematical symbology is used to excess, making the theorems and examples nigh impossible for most students to comprehend without guidance or hours of ponderment.In many cases, the examples are peppered with expressions such as "it is obvious that . . ." when the reader may have no idea what Cullen is doing!In one case, a notational convention (D as an operator meaning differentiation) was introduced several chapters before it was defined, and several frequently used symbols and notations are absent from the glossary inside the front cover

I had to respond to the student review posted here...2-0 out of 5 stars Don't Try This at Home
This book was less than satisfactory.The author, Charels G. Cullen, does cover many of the topics in a typical Differential Equations course, but the book is completly unorganized.He provides problems at the begining ofthe first few chapters that one should not be expected to know how to dountil the book is finished.Without an instructor and supplementalmaterial, some of the topics are nearly impossible.In the course I tookwe rarely used it except for homework problems, and the reading we did doneeded detailed explanation the next day.Don't read this unless you haveto for a course. ...

This is a fantastic book on number theory. It covers far more ground than most introductory text (comparable to Hardy and Wright in depth with much less concern for the big O). It covers material usually only available in separate texts: Rational points on elliptic curves, the partition function, and Dirchlet series.Quite readable chapters, well motivated theoretically, although the historic motivation for the subject matter comes largely in the end-of-the-chapter notes.It's an excellent refresher and reference for non-specialist who find themselves using an algorithm or formula they've forgotten(number theory now playing a role in physics and CS, like never before). It is well cross-referenced with regards to methods of proofs the can be accomplished in different section by different methods - this again making it an excellent reference.4-0 out of 5 stars The best intro to the subject!
I have started my studies in Number Theory reading this book from thepreface to the last word. It is amazing! I think it is a betterintroduction to the subject than the classical Hardy and Wright...it is"more objective" and almost 100% elementary...a good high schoolreader could do well with it. The chapter of diophantine equations has somedivine proofs, very clever and very beautiful. And there is an easy proofof the irracionality of Pi. The only negative point is the existence ofsome points where the authors could be less concise and a bit clearer,stating the theorems before giving the demonstrations, instead of saying atthe end of the paragraph "we then have proved the theorem of..."Its a good book for self-study. It has many exercises. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice
An excellent book.The approach, working toward the general theory via examples, has some great pedagogical virtues but also drawbacks.It also means the book has drawbacks as a reference, as important general theorems can be hard to locate (often they are in an appendix, but relevant definitions or lemmas are in several places in the text). Despite the example-oriented style, the level of mathematical sophistication assumed is reasonably high (so some physicists, for example, may find some of the explanations require boning up on certain ideas found more in pure mathematics than physics).However, many things are given very nice explanations that are lacking in some dryer texts (e.g. Varadarajan, or even Humphreys).Particularly nice is the discussion of relations between the representation theory of finite groups and Lie groups.Many mathematicians might find this book an enjoyable read to see connections made and examples worked out at a high level of sophistication, after learning the general theory.Some may also find it useful primarily as a repository of worked-out examples. I found Humphreys book "Introduction to Lie algebras and representation theory (Springer GTM series) to be an essential companion for getting the general theory with full proofs in a somewhat more logical order, if somewhat terse and a tad dry;Knapp's book "Lie groups beyond an introduction" could also serve this purpose, perhaps even somewhat better.If teaching a course, I would probably use this as supplemental reading rather than a primary text (though it could also turn out that gradually-generalizing-from-examples approach works better in a course than for self-teaching).It has been a useful book for me to own, and I recommend it, with the caution that you will probably want to supplement it with a book like Knapp's.(If you want to use only one book, and are reasonably mathematically sophisticated and already know basically what Lie groups and algebras are, use Knapp's.) I am a math-oriented physicist, who recently learned much of this material, using this and other books, in order to use it in my research.

5-0 out of 5 stars A beautiful exposition
This is an absolutely delightful introduction to the theory of Lie groupsand their representations.The style is informal but informative, withsome of the important proofs hidden in the appendex or even omitted (i.e.existance of the finite dimensional representations for all lie algebras). However, this is a fully rigorous text, and all the important theorems arestated, and most are proved.Mathematicians should suppliment this bookwith Humphries standard text on Lie algebras.However, this book providesmotivation and intuitive insight that Humphries is missing.Additionalenjoyment may be derived from the sampling of other unusual topics, such asSchur functors and applications to algebraic geometry.Of course, thesecan also be omitted as the reader desires.Read a lecture every few nightsbefore bedtime, and soon Lie theory will seem beautiful and almostintuitive.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly Clear
An excellent companion for anybody learning lie algebras or representation theory. Also good for physics folk needing to pick up more than the basics of lie algebras; a nice followup to a "lie algebras in physics"book (and there are many of those.)Read more

This is exceptionally well-written and easy to understand, with lots of features (quotes, cartoons, drawings, "how-do-we-knows", etc.) to hold the reader's interest.It is also up-to-date and covers a wide range of subjects, such as global warming.It is very far from the "dry" physics texts I remember.Of particular note is the introduction of a "quantized matter field" that replaces the notion of particles.
