    Possible Return To Algebra 1

    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.

    You should have have asked. Mike Sullivan is a good author but tends to be advanced.
    Books by Margaret L. Lial would be more suitable for your study. With all the used bookstores in NYC you surely can find an old addition of one of her books.

    What about amazon.com? Can I find Margaret L. Lial books there?

    It seems that Amazon overpriced those books.
