The Ninth Edition of Swokowski Cole's highly respected precalculus text retains the elements that have made it so popular with instructors and students alike; the time-tested exercise sets feature a variety of applications; its exposition is clear; its uncluttered layout is appealing; and the difficulty level of problems is appropriate and consistent. With these elements the authors succeed in preparing students for calculus.

PRECALCULUS: FUNCTIONS AND GRAPHS, 9/e is mathematically sound and has excellent problem sets. In this edition, all of the chapters now include numerous technology inserts and examples with specific keystrokes for the TI-83 Plus and the TI-86, ideal for students who are working with a graphing calculator for the first time. The new design of the text makes the technology inserts easily identifiable, allowing professors to skip them if desired.
