5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book - No Question.
Let's just say that I've been out of school for a while now and Algebra has never been my strong suit.However, I use math all the time in my job so I thought I'd try to learn easier ways of doing things.
5-0 out of 5 stars This book saved me!!!!
I am a gifted facilitator but that doesn't mean I am an expert in every subject area!This book helped me understand the logic of Algebra for the first time in my life! It helped me understand Algebra in a way that I could explain to my students and that made sense!My students enjoyed the little stories that helped them remember the rules of Algebra!This book saved me! It was a breakthrough for me and I give it the highest rating. Anyone who is over their head in trying to teach Algebra will find it a lifesaver.

5-0 out of 5 stars Algebra tutorial
I would recommend this book to anyone having difficulty with algebra.My son had always done well in math, but had trouble understanding his Algebra I class and was failing the tests.I heard Mr. Zaccaro speak at a conference and bought this book.I used the book to tutor my son and his test grades went from 60s to 90s.He finished the year with a solid B average and is now one of the top students in Algebra II and easily maintains an A average.He is even able to help other students, because Mr. Zaccaro's book gave him such a good foundation in the subject.As a teacher, I think this book succeeds because it is not only informative, but it presents the lessons in an interesting, kid-friendly way.I think it's an excellent tool for remediation; however, I also think it would be great for any child interested in learning algebra just for fun, before it is taught in school. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars the long awaited second edition
The second edition is much like the first and is at least a year behind the original schedule.See my review of the first edition to understand why this is a classical.The promised advances in missing data are included and a new author Haegerty has been added.The missing data chapter is three times longer than in the first edition.They cover what they promised.They also mention some of the econometrics literature including the work of Nobel Laureate James Heckman but admit in the preface that they do not know that literature very well and hence do not cover it in depth.5-0 out of 5 stars already the classic book on longitudinal data analysis
When this book came out in 1994 there was a great need to look differently at clinical data on subjects. Typically such data would have repeated measurements over time for many subjects but for only a few time points (say three to five). Standard analysis of variance methods do not properly account for within patient correlation between measurements. Time series analysis generally is good for treating long series (but usually only one or a few). In the clinical setting we often are considering hundreds of patients over short time intervals. This book is clearly written for intermediate level statistics students.5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, highly recommended!
This book was written by three very prestigious authors, two of which work at The Johns Hopkins University(Dr. Liang and Dr. Zeger), and Dr. Diggle, who is working in England.These three are very well known and respected characters in their field of work, and this book is an excellent reflection upon the research and work they have done over the years.Watch out! the key word is: GEE ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Where are the last four chapters?
This solutions book only goes through chapter 8 and the actual text has 12 chapters.I found that the answers were explained fairly well but I was very disappointed that it was missing several chapters and was probably not worth the money.

1-0 out of 5 stars THE PAPERBACK IS THE SOLUTIONS MANUAL
Unfortunately the paperback is not a a paperback edition of the textbook, but the student's solution manual.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to read.
I thought the book explained each topic in an easy to follow manner.There are some challenging excercises at the end of each section. Some of the exercises stumped me, but I guess that's good if you're looking to bechallenged. I bought the solutions manual which gives step by stepsolutions to the odd questions.The book doesn't cover every area ofcalculus, but I found it useful when I didn't understand what we covered inclass. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Introduction
This book provides an introduction to the advanced subject of dynamic optimization in an easy to comprehend manner. For students with no previous background in the subject, it is the best book in the market.If you are familiar with Chiang's Fundamental Methods of Mathematical Economics, you can expect the same level of comfort. There are plenty of examples in the text and all the aspects of the subject are covered. A valuable book to own and deserves the 5 stars.

2-0 out of 5 stars Learn the stuff before writing a textbook
This book may be great for students. I has many good examples, is well written and generally looks good. HOWEVER, for anyone who actually knows optimal control theory it is clear that the book has several flaws. The worst example is the section on transversality conditions in infinite horizon problems. Chiang simply has no idea what he is talking about.

4-0 out of 5 stars Better than any of the courses I had attented.
The book of professor Chiang is not simply a good introductory text to dynamic optimization in the continuous-time form, but also provides a tight explanation of the related original economic models. It is better than any of the courses most people had attented before. I wish a similar book will appear soon, developing dynamic optimization tools, and especially optimal control in the discret-time form. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Spectacular
O.K., I don't even know how to start...this bookis GREAT.Iwas always afraid of everything that involves numbers, but not anymore.
5-0 out of 5 stars Look & Think no Further or Longer!!
Michael Kelley's books', that is the ones that pertain to both algebra and calculus, are written so well it's nearly to good to be true. If you're like me, you've been looking and nearly afraid to actually buy a book about algebra or calculus because you've also probably spent a ton of money on that so called "teach yourself" series or style only to slam the cover shut and toss it up on a bookshelf.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great for a quick refresher
I am 30 and decided to return to college.I had to take the college placement exam and so I needed to brush up on my Algebra.This book is great for that.The book started with the basics and moved up with each chapter.I was fun to read and not at all like the boring old textbooks.The only fault I could find in the book is that there were not enough review problems to do.Each chapter was broken down into sections and each section had about 2 algebra problems to complete, with the answers provided in the back of the book.I wish the author would have expanded this section to a minimum of 5 exercises per section so I truly would grasp each section.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another fabulous book from Paul Nahin
Here is a book that is a delight to read.It is well-written and the text flows marvelously between each page and around the many formulas that are so carefully presented and worked out.I rate this book as 5-stars for presenting ever more mathematics relating to complex numbers in a clear and detailed manner.
5-0 out of 5 stars Sequel to An Imaginary Tale
The reviews of An Imaginary Tale capture much of what will be said of Dr. Euler's Fabulous Formula. I happen to like Paul Nahin's books very much ever since reading The Science of Radio, one of my favorite books of all time. If you didn't like Imaginary, you won't like Dr. Euler's . If you like the earlier book, this one is a must.

2-0 out of 5 stars Another pathetic college algebra book
The marketing machine for Stewart's books is working wonders, but the books aren't. Too many colleges and universities are duped into adopting these books while students and conscious instructors exploit minimal benefit from them, specially in the problem sets, which are quite poor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Discover algebra
We use this book by Stewart, Redlin and Watson for our College Algebra class, one of the two bridge classes between intermediate algebra and the college-level calculus course (the other bridge course is trigonometry).The first chapter is a review of key concepts (one that I've found almost every algebra book tends to cover, regardless of level).Real numbers, algebraic expressions, exponents, radicals, and factoring are reintroduced to students in ways that will carry through the rest of the text.Depending upon the sequencing of study, this section can be glossed over fairly quickly.However, the student would be well served to see the Discovery Project in this section, which shows an interesting graphic/visual way of seeing how equations operate.
2-0 out of 5 stars Don't like this book
I had this book in my college algebra class, and non of the students liked it.It didn't explain things well enough to enable you to do the chapter problems.The teacher explain everything in class using her own notes and only used the book for us to practice the math problems.If anyone missed a day of class, they were in trouble because they missed the teachers notes, which was the only way to understand the problems in the book.I hope the school stops using this book. I'm sure there are other better college algebra books out there. ... Read more

This book was the best out of several others that I have read realted to usability engineering or UCD. It had several practical examples and stories attached to each topic. Its excellent for starter as well as proffesionals who are working at companies and have to justify several things. Several formates for reports and other resources are available for conducting a good Users and Task Analysis. More so its really easy and interesting to read with all the stories and the diagrams.

If there is one strong message in this book, it is: Go talk to the people who will use your product. It's an important message. Software designers and writers spend too much time with each other developing clever tricks, while the poor user, often left to self-train with a poorly written manual, gives up in frustration. The authors follow their own advice--in addition to telling you how to conduct a site visit to the end users, there are clear instructions (based on experience) on planning a visit, structuring questions, how to make the site visit useful for both the analyzers and the users, and figuring out what the user said and what it means about the product.There are reminders about release forms and examples of the forms themselves.Case studies help make the points clear and undestandable. A thoroughly readable book in clear and simple language that can be started anywhere for quick help, or read cover to cover for a complete course. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars A confusing hodgepodge of tangential ideas
I agree completely with J. Elliott.The author states so many propositions without proof, and even the proofs given are too sketchy, forcing the reader to fill in every detail, and in many instances, the author's proofs are simply wrong.Many of his definitions are vague and confusing, in many cases bewildering the reader's mind with all kinds of tangential questions unrelated to the main topic.Paul Taylor misleads the reader with chapter titles like "Posets and Lattices" and "Cartesian Closed Categories" in which he does not stick to the topics he promises to cover but jumps all over the place into unrelated fields.It's like he wants to "introduce" the reader to so much that he has no time to explain anything.
2-0 out of 5 stars Useful summary, poor exposition
The author's staccato writing style is reminiscent of Gilbert Strang's. Some may like it, but I find it jarring. The content is a concise summary of interesting topics at the confluence of mathematics, logic and computer science (see the table of contents), but it reads like a pr�cis for those who already know the subject. This is no doubt fine if you fall into that category. If you're looking for an expository text, this, alas, isn't it.

this is a a good work, the section about Structural Recursion was very insightful too

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is worth it's weight in gold!!
If I could, I would give this book ten stars.When I first sat down to read it, I couldn't believe what I was seeing.This is the only book I have ever seen on complex analysis (or any scientific field for that matter) in which the authors cover so much material (everything from residues to integral equations to elliptic functions and MUCH more) and yet manage to make the whole text fit into a framework which is relatively easy to follow, even for someone completely new to complex analysis.Moreover, the majority of the many hundreds of excercizes in this book range from moderately to nail-bitingly hard, and encourage a true understanding of the material being covered.I would reccommend this book for ANYONE who has mastered basic calculus and analysis and wishes to begin learning complex analysis and the theory of special functions.The book's coverage of the following topics is especially noteworthy:The gamma function (the book uses the INFINITE PRODUCT as the basic definition), the hypergeometric function (and the confluent hypergeometric function), bessel functions (a field in which G.N. Watson was a leading expert), and the Weirstrassian and Jacobean elliptic functions and theta functions (I LOVED the intuitive development of the theory of the elliptic functions, which is made to parrallel that of the trigonometric functions, which are of course familiar to the reader).I would ESPECIALLY recommend this book for those pursuing SELF-STUDY (although it is NOT for the mathematically weak-of-heart, but no book on the topic is), as it is quite self-contained and readable for a book on complex analysisis.Once you buy it, you won't even think to complain about the high pricetag, because you will be way too absorbed in the math to think about anything else.

5-0 out of 5 stars About the other author, YOU STILL DID NOT BUY IT?
Neville Watson's mother was Mary Justina Griffith, the daughter of the rector of Ardley in Oxfordshire. Neville's father was George Wentworth Watson who was a schoolmaster, but is more famous for his work as a genealogist. He played a large role in the publication of The Complete Peerage, a 13-volume database of the British peerage, generally accepted as the greatest British achievement in the field of genealogy. The first edition was published in London between 1887 and 1898. George and Mary Watson had two children, a boy and a girl, the eldest being Neville. 5-0 out of 5 stars really eternal

5-0 out of 5 stars Great vector calculus refresher
If you've been introduced to paritial integration then you'll be able to follow this book.I wish I had know about it while I was taking multivarible calculus and electrodynamics.There are a number of solved problems at the end of each chapter.A great way to foster your intutive knowledge of those little electrons.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This book has been helping generations of math students on vector calculus. It is a great presentation of the subject with lots of helpful diagrams (those are hard to find in more formal texts). The back page has a good summary of all the formulas for cartesian, cylindrical and spherical coordinates. Every vector calculus student should read this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Everyone has to start some where.
I do not know about you. But I can study math a lot better if the book has a hard cover. This first chapter assumes you are coming from ground zero and is good to read just to brush up or see if there is anything new, that you missed originally. There is a smooth transition and a gradual complexity as you go from the fundamentals through the subject. Now some people will complain that it is not all practical or applied. This was not designed as a course for practical or applied. However it sure helps when reading other books tat can only explain tings in at least rudimentary math. Even the fundamentals of trig are needed to follow The Ascent of Man by Jacob Bronowski ISBN: 0316109339. Now I call that practical. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Rigorous but accesible..an engineer's intro to proofs
I write this review on the context of having done all the math required for mechanical engineer but never havin to do proofs... as B.Rusell once said do and the by faith you will believe... trying to escape that state of mind I got this book some years ago, Im glad for the author follows a structure approach similar to learning a programming language, once you master some elemenatry techniques you can stack up to create refined algorithms.

3-0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars for the book, 1 star for an unnecessary 2nd edition
I have the first edition of this excellent book, and I compared it to the recently published second edition. Quite frankly, I can't see why they bothered. It's not like the methods of mathematical proofs change that much over time. We're not talking about some 1400 page shovelware book on being a MCSE/CCNA/etc. where the qualifications change every six months. There are only three basic changes to this book in its second edition:
4-0 out of 5 stars overlay logic on any other type of maths
The math notation in this book is that typically of texts used by maths majors. Most of those people should already have a grasp of proving statements. But some do not, and the book is directed to them.

5-0 out of 5 stars College Prep Teacher Loves this Text
I have been teaching Advanced Precalculus in a college preparatory high School for 14 years.I also teach AP Calculus and know what my students must cover to be prepared for a Calculus I course.This precalculus text is excellent in teaching precal students EVERYTHING they need to be prepared for calculus.It is also very user-friendly.For instance,it is a very readable text and most examples are worked out using a variety of approaches.With the multiple solution approaches to examples, students can see an algebraic solution, numeric solution, and graphic solution to the same problem.This enables students to see how all these things fit together and make important connections between graphing and hand-work.Multiple solutions is also beneficial in a classroom setting as not all students have the same learning style.Visual learners will benefit by seeing the pictoral representation of their solution, while sequential learners will appreciate the step-by-step algebraic worked out solution, etc.All applicable examples are solved using a graphing calculator, which is essential for current technology requirements.The book is also easy to adjust for block or regular scheduling. (approximately 1 section a day on block; 1/2 section a day on regular)I have used several other precal texts and much prefer this one.The material is well laid out and ordered.The difficulty level can be adjusted to be challenging for a high school advanced precalculus course or otherwise.Students wishing to review a previous precalculus course or teach themselves precalculus will appreciate this text, as well.I read the other reviews of this book listed at Amazon.While it is true there are typographical errors, I don't find them any more excessive than in other texts I use.I don't use the "test generator" software as I make all my own tests and quizzes, so I cannot comment on it.Based on my years of experience as a Master Math Teacher, I would have to disagree with the other negative reviews of this text.Of course, this is only my opinion.I can tell you that the other teachers at my school using this book love it, as well.Hope this information is helpful.

1-0 out of 5 stars Impossibly Annoying
I found this book to be very infuriating and shallow, and there are many incorrect answers in the back.Many of the homework exercises are simply busy work, and I felt like I learned nothing by wasting my time doing them.The overall approach is too elementary in some areas that really need explaining, and too complicated in areas that could be simply stated.The authors should have proof-read!!!Don't get this book if you have a choice.

4-0 out of 5 stars I Won't Complain...
Last year I took an Algebra 2 Honors course and the book was absolutely horrendous.My teacher was fantastic, but every once in a while we ran out of time during class to finish the lesson.I would go to the book and try to learn it on my own, very unsuccessfully.
