Overview
The proven approach of Michael Sullivan and Michael Sullivan III focuses you on the fundamental skills needed for the algebra and trigonometry course: prepare for class, practice with homework, and review the concepts. Part of the Enhanced with Graphing Utilities Series, Precalculus Enhanced with Graphing Utilities fully integrates graphing utilities into topics, allowing you to explore mathematical concepts and encounter ideas usually studied in later courses. Many examples show solutions using algebra side by side with graphing techniques. In the 8th Edition, all exercises and examples in the text have been reviewed and updated as needed, and the authors have added new problemsolving and review features.

Yes, the Study & Exam Prep Pack's feature is Channels, which can be purchased separately at any time. Simply go to Channels on the Pearson+ site and choose monthly, quarterly, or annual access, separate from your eTextbook subscription. Still deciding? Watch the first six videos free and buy it if you love it (we know you'll love it!).
Currently, they are the exact same offering. 'Study & Exam Prep Pack' is what we call 'Channels' when it is bundled with an eTextbook or bundled with MyLab & Mastering courseware. When purchased on its own, you will see it called Channels, still the same study & exam prep help you need.
