Why I purchased: My book was stolen from me at school and I needed a quick replacement. This was an acceptable substitute for the book we were using in class, so I was seeking to find the least expensive version just to replace my old book for the rest of the year. Not even paying $5, this book would be an excellent substitute for the one that I had been stolen from me. I barely lost any time with prime shipping and the quality is very good.

What I love: It was marked as "very good" and it definitely is! There is nothing that impairs the book's details, and for such a low price, I'm actually shocked that it is in such nice condition! The eighth edition has everything that I need and isn't too different from my old book. I really can't believe I got it for less than $5.

What I don't love: I have zero complaints related to this product, as it came when it was supposed to, does its job perfectly, and was so inexpensive.

Conclusion: I recommend purchasing from this seller! Everything was described accurately and was at such a decent price. Thanks for the book!

Coming from a student who excelled in his trigonometry class, and uses trig frequently in real world applications, this book is absolutely awful. The explanations are vague and unhelpful, and the only reason I was able to get through the homework at times was because of previous experience in this area of mathematics. I noticed other students in my class having trouble with the first few chapters due to such issues, which is a shame, as they are key to building a solid foundation moving in to calculus. As other reviewers have stated, there are indeed types of problems that are never explained, and the book is also sorely lacking in explanations of derivations of trigonometric identities (which are really quite easy to explain and helps greatly towards actually understanding the math). Additionally, I found more than a few errors in the answer key. Considering that this is an elementary trigonometry book, this is unacceptable. Just for laughs, I did look for an errata sheet, but couldn't find any. I've compared this edition a bit to the 10th edition and that one doesn't look too much better in terms of explanations, but hopefully the errors present in this edition have been fixed. In the end, you are probably buying this book because it is required for your class, so most of these reviews serve more as a warning than anything. But if you are trying to learn trigonometry by yourself, there are much better resources out there.

I first learned trigonometry 26 years ago, and am currently a tutor in a Tutoring Center where math and English are the primary calls for our assistance. We started using this book on Trigonometry by Lial, Hornsby and Schneider last year, and it has been a real aid to all of us.

The chapters are designed with brief overviews, 'Chapter Openers', at the beginning of each. There are sample exercises in the explanations, as well as exercises in the problem sets keyed to specific application of examples. There are summary exercises that give review of mixed concepts, pull-quote boxes (here called 'Function Boxes') to highlight the reference aspect of the text, and useful chapter reviews to the same.

One thing that stands out about this text from the one I used so many years ago is the colour aspect. There are pictures, multi-coloured graphs and illustrations, and a general feel to the book that makes it visually worthwhile to look at. This book also takes advantage of the increasing sophistication of calculators - again, back when I took trigonometry, there were tables of data in the back for looking things up, since calculators (such as they were) had only add/subtract/multiply/divide functions.

The chapters go in a fairly standard pattern for trigonometry. Chaptes progress from basic Trigonometric Functions, defining triangular and angular ideas. This continues more in depth with Acute Angles and Right Angles, then proceeds to Circular Functions, introducing Radian Measures in for good measure. The fourth chapter introduces graphing ideas for the circular functions (sine, cosine, etc.), while the sixth chapter introduces the idea of the inverse circular and trigonometric functions. Other chapters include trigonometric identities (this always seemed to me to be like geometry or logic using trig functions), vectors, complex numbers, polar equations, exponential and logarithmic functions. Many of these concepts have direct application in engineering and other sciences.

This book is also geared for students who will be advancing on to calculus, and gives marginal notes on how trigonometry is used in calculus (so as to pre-empt the question, 'when am I ever going to use this?').

Actually, I found trigonometry to be among the more enjoyable math courses I ever took; together with geometry, it confirmed an early love of the discovery of patterns and symmetry in the very fabric of existence. This book reminds me of those early days of exploring ideas, and it is a pleasure to share these same ideas with new students via this text.

This book is just fine as a trig book, but it follows the current trend of greedy publishers squeezing students for extra money by convincing professors to use HORRIBLE online content, with a one time use access code in the book. This forces students to buy new or pay the publisher a fee to access the online content. I cannot stress strongly enough how awful this online content is. It is a very poorly made flash interface and it makes doing homework much more time consuming and frustrating. When was the last time you needed a decimal approximation for the measure of an angle correct to seven digits? That is just one of many stupid issues I had with the homework they provide. You will spend more time trying to figure out how to properly input your answer than you will spend finding the answer using trig. Even my professor agreed that the content was ridiculous after some questions from the class.

This is just the text book without any mymathlab access. They really need to be clear about that in the description. There is no access code anywhere on it that would apply to a different program either. I have no idea why it costs more than the other books.

I rented it used and the MyMathLab access code was not usable. I will have to spend another $90 just for online access to complete required assignments. The access code part of the title needs to be removed once "used" or "rent" is selected.
