Guide Review - Precalculus Resource

I would highly recommend this resource for a variety of reasons. The author of this precalculus guide; Michael Kelley wrote this text for students, ranging from those having little mathematical background and fear of mathematics courses to those who have had a strong mathematical education and are highly motivated. His students have named him "Most Popular Teacher" for four years. He provides you with the background information and strategies you need to become successful - whether this is your last mathematics course or the first as you prepare to move on to college or university math.
