Written by David Cohen and co-authors Theodore B. Lee and David Sklar, PRECALCULUS, Seventh Edition, focuses on the use of a graphical perspective to provide a visual understanding of college algebra and trigonometry. Cohen's texts are known for their clear writing style and outstanding, graded exercises and applications, including many examples and exercises involving applications and real-life data. Graphs, visualization of data, and functions are introduced and emphasized early on to aid student understanding. Although the text provides thorough treatment of the graphing calculator, the material is arranged to allow instructors to teach the course with as much or as little graphing utility work as they wish.

With the same design and feature sets as the market leading Precalculus, 7/e, this new addition to the Larson/Hostetler Precalculus series provides both students and instructors with sound, consistently structured explanations of the mathematical concepts. Designed for a two-term course, this text contains the features that have made Precalculus a complete solution for both students and instructors: interesting applications, cutting-edge design, and innovative technology combined with an abundance of carefully written exercises. In addition to a brief algebra review and the core precalculus topics, Precalculus with Limits covers analytic geometry in three dimensions and introduces concepts covered in calculus.

Sheldon Axler's Precalculus: A Prelude to Calculus, 3rd Edition focuses only on topics that students actually need to succeed in calculus. This book is geared towards courses with intermediate algebra prerequisites and it does not assume that students remember any trigonometry. It covers topics such as inverse functions, logarithms, half-life and exponential growth, area, e, the exponential function, the natural logarithm and trigonometry.
PRECALCULUS, Fifth Edition, focuses on teaching the essentials that students need to both fulfill their precalculus requirement and be fully prepared to succeed in calculus. The text presents an integrated review of algebra and trigonometry while covering fundamental calculus concepts, and providing the solid grounding in analysis and graphing that is necessary to make a successful transition to calculus. This streamlined text provides all the mathematics that students need--without bogging them down in review material or overwhelming them with too much, too soon. The authors have purposely kept this book, unlike many available Precalculus books, at a length that can be covered in one term.

PRECALCULUS prepares students for calculus and the rigors of that course, having been written by teachers who have taught the courses and seen where students need help--and where other texts have come up short. The text features precise definitions and exposition, carefully crafted pedagogy, and a strong emphasis on algebraic, transcendental, and trigonometric functions. To show students how important and relevant precalculus topics are to their future coursework, an optional Looking Ahead to Calculus feature appears in each chapter. The varied examples and exercises include many that encourage students to use and understand graphs, as opposed to simply draw them, providing additional sound preparation for calculus.

Precalculus is adaptable and designed to fit the needs of a variety of precalculus courses. It is a comprehensive text that covers more ground than a typical one- or two-semester college-level precalculus course. The content is organized by clearly-defined learning objectives, and includes worked examples that demonstrate problem-solving approaches in an accessible way. Coverage and Scope Precalculus contains twelve chapters, roughly divided into three groups. Chapters 1-4 discuss various types of functions, providing a foundation for the remainder of the course. Chapter 1: Functions Chapter 2: Linear Functions Chapter 3: Polynomial and Rational Functions Chapter 4: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions Chapters 5-8 focus on Trigonometry. In Precalculus, we approach trigonometry by first introducing angles and the unit circle, as opposed to the right triangle approach more commonly used in College Algebra and Trigonometry courses. Chapter 5: Trigonometric Functions Chapter 6: Periodic Functions Chapter 7: Trigonometric Identities and Equations Chapter 8: Further Applications of Trigonometry Chapters 9-12 present some advanced Precalculus topics that build on topics introduced in chapters 1-8. Most Precalculus syllabi include some of the topics in these chapters, but few include all. Instructors can select material as needed from this group of chapters, since they are not cumulative. Chapter 9: Systems of Equations and Inequalities Chapter 10: Analytic Geometry Chapter 11: Sequences, Probability and Counting Theory Chapter 12: Introduction to Calculus
