From the Back Cover:

This book is an "impedance match" between high school math and science, and university physics-with-calculus at the level of Halliday-Resnick. It is for students who have done reasonably well in the standard high school courses but who need practice with the applications of quantitative methods. The topics covered are those fundamental skills and techniques that are most needed and assumed in introductory physics, but that many students do not have. Students who have taken a course based on this book have established a good record of doing well in their subsequent physics course.
