    • A diagnostic survey located at the beginning of the book helps students determine areas in which they need improvement, both in their attitude and study habits.
    • A summary list of questions and answers at the end of every chapter helps students remember the chapter's key points.
    • A "Study Habits Improvement Check," located at the back of the book, helps students evaluate their progress.
    • This book is available as a bundle with all Brooks/Cole first-level mathematics books. Call Brooks/Cole Marketing for more information: (800) 354-0092.
    • "The sentences are clear, short, and concise. The text gives excellent advice and does it in a manner that uplifts a student's desire to use these methods. It does not talk down to the student. I have had many students comment on how well they like the text and how it has improved their study habits. . . . The major strength of the text is that it gives sound advice on how to overcome all of the problems students have when taking a math class."
