This Trigonometry book isn't bad, but it does lack well structured explanations in many areas. There are a lot of topics that show an example of one type of problem, but they don't really show how to manipulate the same concept into a different scenario. Some of the trig identities like double angle formulas, sum-to-product, and product-to-sum formulas are barely explained. They give one basic example of how to use the formula, and they don't elaborate on how to use it in a more complicated problem.

My school uses Larson books all the way from elementary algebra, up through Calculus. This Trigonometry book isn't bad, but it does lack well structured explanations in many areas. There are a lot of topics that show an example of one type of problem, but they don't really show how to manipulate the same concept into a different scenario. Some of the trig identities like double angle formulas, sum-to-product, and product-to-sum formulas are barely explained. They give one basic example of how to use the formula, and they don't elaborate on how to use it in a more complicated problem.

One very strong point that this book has, along with the other Larson books, is a very wide variety of practice exercises. The end of chapter sections begin with simpler exercises, and progress up through the different concepts in a given section very logically. Each section of practice exercises has a good variety of word problems, many of which will apply all of the concepts you've learned in a given section, as well as forcing you to recall material from previous sections.

I also really like the "proofs in mathematics" sections at the end of each chapter, because they go more in depth about why a certain formula works. This books includes proofs of most of the common trig identities, which is very useful. I'm the type of person that understands an idea better when I can actually see WHY something works, and WHY we're doing it that way, rather than just having to rote memorize a certain formula. Seeing these proofs helps a lot with that.

I also bought the accompanying student solutions manual. I'm writing a separate review for that, but I'll touch on it briefly here as well. The student solutions manual is incredibly hit or miss. Some of the problems are worked out completely, and other problems basically just show the original problem statement, followed by one intermediate step, then the final answer. Really? It might help to see a few of the steps in between, and see an explanation as to how we got from point A to point B.

Overall, this is a solid Trig book, but I don't think I'd recommend it for self studying.

Recently acquired two of Ron Larson's books, Trigonometry and College Algebra. Impressive. I highly recommend both books for any student currently taking one or both courses and, especially, for anyone planning to study calculus. Not only are these text books great as a course book, but they are also invaluable as reference texts for higher math courses. Additionally, anyone doing home schooling or tutoring will find both books excellent texts for both the instructor and student.

First off, it came sooner than I expected, even with the supposedly slower free shipping I was expecting 10 days, but it turned out more like 5-7 days. That was great! Just in time for class!

As far as the book itself goes, it's the one my teacher told me to get, so I didn't really have any options. And well, math...haha, it isn't really my slice of cake, to completely misuse a cliche. But ignoring all this, it has fairly detailed, easy to understand directions on each of the concepts. The book usually gives example problems and works you through them instead of writing out the concepts, which is sometimes good, and sometimes a pain in the butt. Sometimes if I'm feeling extra daring (not very often...) I move faster than we do in class, and I'm still able to pick up concepts. And I'm an English major, not a math one, so I'm only so-so at math. That's good, right?

As for what's inside this beast, there's around 11 chapters with about 7 sections in each, and plenty of practice problems (the odd numbered problems have answers in the back, and the even ones don't, so your teacher will obviously assign the even ones :). The insides of the covers have random diagrams with official sounding titles like ''Graphs of Parent Functions,'' and ''Formulas for Geometry,'' and some random Algebra stuff like special factors and a conversion table...that's pretty handy, I suppose. I haven't used it yet, but I'm sure some might find it invaluable.

Be aware, my teacher wanted us to get some sort of online access code, and the amazon version doesn't come with it...just a warning. That was one of the reasons I'd dock it a few stars.

All in all, I'd give the book a 3.5, but there aren't any half stars, so I rounded up...Why 3.5? 1. It didn't have the online access code I needed (it didn't say it would have it, I just automatically assumed it would) 2. Sometimes the explanations aren't sufficient enough. But...It came fairly fast, and it was in good condition, and for a math book it's pretty good, actually. So 3.5, take it or leave it.

I used this book for a Algebra II class I took over the summer at a college. Though I'm a high school student, I understood this book. The authors gave good examples for each type of problem for each section. There are 100 plus review questions for each section. The answers to every single odd numbered question in the back of the book.
Diagrams included are extremely helpful. Definitions and important theorems stand out because they are placed in blue boxes. My only complaints are that some examples don't exactly walk through the entire problem and that the wording of some definitions are verbose.

Good trig book. Bought it because I coach high school math and I had a student in a class using this book. It's a different edition than he had, but served the purpose just fine.

This book should have been set in a larger print type. It is loaded with solid information. Also, the solutions should be available for not just odd-numbered problems but for ALL problems given in this Trigonometry book.

I do recommend this book for all students of trigonometry and geometry. The Explanations are easy to comprehend and appears to be very concise.

Rented this book for my summer trig class, got here in 2 days, perfect condition.
paid only 10% the price of the book at the time.

Got a 97% on my trig class, sweet deal.

Good book with good examples, awesome addition to the lectures and very easy to understand examples.
