The Dugopolski series in developmental mathematics has helped thousands of students succeed in their developmental math courses.

**is part of the latest offerings in the successful Dugopolski series in mathematics. In his books, students and faculty will find short, precise explanations of terms and concepts written in clear, understandable language that is mathematically accurate. Dugopolski also includes a double cross-referencing system between the examples and exercise sets, so no matter where the students start, they will see the connection between the two. Finally, the author finds it important to not only provide quality but also a wide variety and quantity of exercises and applications.***Elementary & Intermediate Algebra,*4e### Details & Specs
