"This text covers topics that are usually associated with intermediate algebra and college algebra. It can be used for a one-semester course, but it contains ample material for a two-semester course. The basic concepts of intermediate algebra are presented in this text in a simple, straight-forward way. Algebraic ideas are developed in a logical sequence and in an easy-to-read manner without excessive formalism. Concepts are developed through examples, reinforced through additional examples, and then applied in a variety of problem-solving situations. There is a common thread that runs throughout the book : Learn a skill, Practice the skill, Apply the skill." --
