0321557174: Elementary Algebra: Concepts and Applications 0201716305: MathXL (12month access) Synopsis:When the answer at the back of the book is simply not enough, then you need the Student Solutions Manual. With fully workedout solutions to all oddnumbered text problems, the Student Solutions Manual lets you "learn by example" and see the mathematical steps required to reach a solution. Workedout problems included in the Solutions Manual are carefully selected from the textbook as representative of each section's exercise sets so you can followalong and study more effectively. The Student Solutions Manual is simply the fastest way to see your mistakes, improve learning, and get better grades.
