Kaufmann and Schwitters have built this text's reputation on clear and concise exposition, numerous examples, and plentiful problem sets. This traditional text consistently reinforces the following common thread: learn a skill; use the skill to help solve equations; and then apply what you have learned to solve application problems. This simple, straightforward approach has helped many students grasp and apply fundamental problem solving skills necessary for future mathematics courses in an easy-to-read format. The new Eighth Edition of ALGEBRA FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS includes new and updated problems, revised content based on reviewer feedback and a new function in iLrn. This enhanced iLrn homework functionality was designed specifically for Kaufmann/Schwitters' users. Textbook-specific practice problems have been added to iLrn to provide additional, algorithmically-generated practice problems, along with useful support and assistance to solve the problems for students.

Review:

"Kaufmann/Schwitters textbook, Algebra for College Students remains to be a good textbook for our students. It is clear in its procedural approach; as well as the number of word problems discussed in each section."

"Quite frankly, I have used Kaufmann/Schwitters for the last three editions. This probably covers the last 8 years or so. I believe it is the most readable, straightforward algebra text on the market. I have examined the others. None compare to this one."

"We found the textbook to be easy to read and there were lots of examples in each section."
