Excellent pedagogy and interesting problems are the key to Bello's
developmental mathematics texts. Each chapter begins with a pre-test that lets
students determine their own strengths and weaknesses. Within chapters, every
section opens with a set of numbered objectives, each followed by a related
example and problem. All subsequent exercises are also keyed to the objectives
and accompanied by applications to show students how their math skills can be
used. Review questions and diagnostic tests at the end of every chapter help
students gauge their own progress. The text's clear, structured format gives
students ample review at every step and helps them find pertinent information
wherever they encounter difficulties.
