    • These are followed by sections including a clearly written exposition of a topic, an illustrative "Case in Point," and a sample "Try It" problem (with answer included) so students can determine their level of understanding.

    • Brief sections help clarify often confusing concepts. Ample end-of chapter concept and numerical problems round out the experience.
