Building off the success of Zill and Dewar's popular Essentials of Precalculus with Calculus Previews, the new Fifth Edition continues to include all of the outstanding features and learning tools found in the original text while incorporating additional topics of coverage that some courses may require. With a continued effort to keep the text complete, yet concise, the authors have included four additional chapters making the text a clear choice for many mainstream courses. Additional chapters include a new chapter on Polar Coordinates, as well as Triangle Trigonometry, Systems of Equations and Inequalities, and Sequences and Series.This student-friendly, full-color text offers numerous exercise sets and examples to aid in students' learning and understanding, and graphs and figures throughout serve to better illuminate key concepts. The exercise sets include engaging problems that focus on algebra, graphing, and function theory, the sub-text of so many calculus problems. The authors are careful to use the terminology of calculus in an informal and comprehensible way to facilitate the student's successful transition into future calculus courses.
