Are you ready to ace calculus at the college level? With this book, you will be! Professors often say Students don't fail the calculus, they fail the algebra. In other words, even if you understand calculus, your algebra and trigonometry skills can hold you back. Here's a quick quiz-do you remember how to: Factor trinomials? Solve equations containing exponents and logs? Work with inverse trig functions? If not, that's where this book comes in handy! Just-in-Time is designed to bolster the algebra and trigonometry skills you'll need while you study calculus. As you make your way through the course, Just-in-Time is with you every step of the way, showing you the exact algebra or trigonometry topics that you'll need and pointing out potential problem spots. The easy-to-use Table of Contents features the calculus subject listed directly across from the algebra/trigonometry skills needed to master that topic.
