The Ninth Edition of Swokowski Cole's highly respected precalculus text retains the elements that have made it so popular with instructors and students alike; the time-tested exercise sets feature a variety of applications; its exposition is clear; its uncluttered layout is appealing; and the difficulty level of problems is appropriate and consistent. With these elements the authors succeed in preparing students for calculus. PRECALCULUS: FUNCTIONS AND GRAPHS, 9/e is mathematically sound and has excellent problem sets. In this edition, all of the chapters now include numerous technology inserts and examples with specific keystrokes for the TI-83 Plus and the TI-86, ideal for students who are working with a graphing calculator for the first time. The new design of the text makes the technology inserts easily identifiable, allowing professors to skip them if desired.

"There is about the right number of exercises, and there is a nice number of applications each time. The 'stories' attached to the application exercises are well developed and meaningful. I also like the use of illustrations to clarify the exercises. It is very helpful." "The exercises are well chosen and connect well with the text. They also go nicely from easier to harder at basically the right pace." "This text is carefully written. It does not oversimplify, but it is still accessible."
"Many mathematics textbooks are too concerned with rigor at the expense of understanding. This book has an adequate mix of rigor and conceptual development for comprehension."
