I have to swallow my pride and accept the fact that perhaps the Michael Sullivan College Algebra textbook is too advanced for me. For example, I do not have a clear understanding of domain and range and currently in Section 3.4 of the textbook.

Word problems continue to be a struggle. I will not throw away my college algebra, precalculus and calculus 1-3 textbooks. I must be realistic. I am struggling with basic algebra. So, I think a review of algebra 1 is called for. Your opinion and advice matter greatly.
