(Note: Reviewing "Mathematical Tools for the Real World: Using and Understanding Mathematics", a custom edition of this book used by Brigham Young University-Idaho)

This is a very basic math text used for a terminal math class. It is exactly what it sounds like, and it does a good job of it. It gets tedious at times, but what math textbook doesn't? I took this class right after completing precalculus, which is probably an influence on my opinion. The online portion is overrated and overpriced, but there's nothing you can do as a student to change that. You're just going to have to grit your teeth and throw your money down the drain on that part.
