College Algebra and Trigonometry: Mymathlab Editionby Margaret L. Lial
Synopses & Reviews
Did you decide NOT to purchase the accompanying textbook at the beginning of the semester? Are you now wishing that you had a textbook? We have designed a product just for your situation–more economical, more portable (thinner and paperback), and more relevant (spiral binding for use next to your computer) for you. The MyMathLab Edition of your textbook is designed for review, reference, and study and does not contain any exercise sets. Exercise sets can be found in the ebook inside your MML course.
