In the Fifth Edition of Applied Calculus for the Managerial, Life, and Social Sciences, author Soo Tan builds on the features that have made his books market leaders-a real-life, problem-solving approach coupled with a concise writing style, a wealth of interesting and illustrative applications to help readers understand the material, and technology coverage that is integrated, but optional, throughout the book. Tan is well known for his ability to present quantitative techniques in an intuitive and accessible yet accurate manner.
