 INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA by JOHN SCOTT 5th edition, 304 pages, \$26.95 ISBN 9780-89641-184-5  Designed for use at the college level, This text stresses the classical versus the modern math approach to algebra. The emphasis throughout the text is on learning the "how" of algebraic procedures rather than the "why." A large number of detailed examples appear in each chapter to aid in the reviewing process. One or more sets of problems are included in each chapter. This edition includes an Appendix on Rectangular Coordinates. SOLUTIONS MANUAL TO SCOTT'S INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA by WILLIAM ECHOLS and ERNEST LOWERY 5th edition, 248 pages, \$19.95 ISBN 978-0-89641-195-1 This manual contains detailed solutions to the odd-numbered exercises listed in Intermediate Algebra, Fifth Edition. Although only one solution is shown for each problem, a variety of methods may be used as many exercises can be worked in more than one way. Emphasis is placed on solutions rather than answers. The answers to all the odd-numbered problems are in the answer section of John B. Scott's Intermediate Algebra.
