Basic College Mathematics with Early Integers, Books a la Carte Edition, 2nd Edition

By Marvin L. Bittinger, Judith A. Penna

Published by Pearson

Published Date: Jan 20, 2010


This edition features the exact same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole- punched, loose-leaf version. Books à la Carte also offer a great value–this format costs 35% less than a new textbook.


The Bittinger Worktext Series changed the face of developmental education with the introduction of objective-based worktexts that presented math one concept at a time. This approach allowed readers to understand the rationale behind each concept before practicing the associated skills and then moving on to the next topic. With this revision, Marv Bittinger continues to focus on building success through conceptual understanding, while also supporting readers with quality applications, exercises, and new review and study materials to help them apply and retain their knowledge.
