**About this book :- **
**Precalculus Demystified (2nd Edition) ** written by
** Rhonda Huettenmueller**.

The purpose of this book is to prepare you for calculus. To succeed in calculus, you need strong algebra skills as well as an understanding of functions and their graphs. Most of the book is dedicated to covering the major families of functions (and their graphs): linear, quadratic, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions. Important calculus concepts are introduced in Chapters 2 and 3: the average rate of change of a function, the difference quotient, and increasing/decreasing intervals for a function. Chapter 6 introduces another important calculus concept: optimizing a function.

Before beginning your study of precalculus, you should have basic algebra skills: the ability to factor expressions, simplify fractions, solve equations and inequalities, and work with exponents and square roots. The Appendix contains a brief review of some of these topics. You should also have a basic knowledge of the xy plane, how to plot points and how to read graphs.

You will get the most from this book if you study the examples before working the Practice problems. If you get a problem wrong, make sure you understand where you went wrong (the solutions are worked out) before moving to the next topic. Study the Chapter Summary at the end of each chapter before taking the quiz and then take it as if you were in a classroom—without using notes or looking at the chapter.

Once you have worked through the chapters, you can take the Final Exam. Rather than try all 90 problems at once, treat the exam as three separate 30problem tests. Try to improve your score with each attempt. If you do reasonably well on these exams, then you are ready for calculus.
