Prepare, practice, and review. Author Michael Sullivan's time-tested approach focuses you on the fundamental skills you need for your college algebra course: prepare for class, practice with homework, and review the concepts. College Algebra, 11th Edition prepares and supports you with access to help, where and when you require it. The hallmark Sullivan cycle of continuous preparation and retention, and the high-quality exercises that Sullivan texts are known for, provide the reinforcement you need. Practical features are offered throughout (such as “Preparing for This Section,” which  lists earlier concepts that will be useful in the section ahead with page references); all examples are written clearly and most conclude with a direction to Now Work, a related exercise that helps you to learn by doing; and much more.
