2.0 out of 5 stars
Good explanations but lots of typos., 13 Nov. 2012
The book has lots of example exercises with very good step-by-step explanations but this edition (unlike the previous ones) is marred with typos and the register of solutions at the end seems to have just been copied and pasted from the previous edition even though some of the questions were changed. This can be a real problem if you are insecure about maths anyway. You will end up trying and trying to solve an exercise and in the end it will turn out that not your solution, but the one provided at the end of the book is wrong. I would recommend one of the older editions.
