This edition features the exact same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole- punched, loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value—this format costs significantly less than a new textbook.
Addressing individual learning styles, Tom Carson presents targeted learning strategies and a complete study system to guide students to success. Carson’s Study System, presented in the “To the Student” section at the front of the text, adapts to the way each student learns, and targeted learning strategies are presented throughout the book to guide students to success. Tom speaks to students in everyday language and walks them through the concepts, explaining not only how to do the math, but also where the concepts come from and why they work.
