HASH(0x98f334b0) von 5 Sternen Outstanding book and invaluable companion for any Trig student... 16. September 2013
Von Mohan Srinivasan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I had to re-learn Trigonometry after having learned it some 35 years ago. I picked up this title and a popular contemporary text (Larson et al). For explanations of various concepts, this book is far superior to the Larson text. With any math book that claims to be accessible, one worry is - Is the content easy because all the difficult parts have been left out ? The Humongous book covers all the Trig topics in the Larson text, so it definitely covers the Trig topics in a High School level course. So it is not a dumbed down book at all !

Pluses :

+ I love the fact that the author explains almost all Trig concepts with examples and intuitive appeal. There was very little that I had to memorize outright
+ Michael Kelley writes exceptionally clearly and explains concepts extremely well
+ Any student that works through every problem should improve their understanding considerably
+ At a cost of $15-$20, this is a terrific investment
+ Written in a very nice, very accessible style that will appeal to math-phobes
+ One can work through the examples in the book quickly. They are nicely laid out (simple problems to more advanced ones as the chapter progresses)

Minuses :

- Hardly any proofs, but for this one can easily refer back to the Larson (or any other) text
- I spotted some errors in the worked out examples, but I am sure that Mr Kelley will fix these in future editions
- Several way to do any problem, there were simpler approaches to solve some of the problems
- Some topics (eg converting polar equations to rectangular form) don't receive adequate or good coverage. For such topics, I look at internet resources and solved several problems from the textbook.

These Minuses don't detract from this excellent, invaluable book much.

Highly recommended as a study guide in a Trigonometry course or for self study ! Need to work out each example yourself to derive the maximum benefit from the book.

I like this book so much that I bought the Algebra book for my middle school aged son, and I will be buying all of Mr. Kelley's other books soon.

HASH(0x98f3357c) von 5 Sternen Good as Usual, But Be Forewarned. 28. April 2014
Von Mr. Math Expert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Read: 4/14
Rate: 5/5

4/14: I own all of the books in the Humongous series, and I think all of them are very good. The Humongous Book of Trigonometry Problems is no exception as I solved every problem. In it, the pedagogy is very clear and concise in terms of arriving at the solution and explaining why it is so. One nice thing about the book, as I don't see it early enough in other books, is the inclusion of vectors in three chapters. Although The Humongous Book of Trigonometry Problems covers a lot of topics, it's still missing plenty more such as proofs, linear and angular velocities, and many diverse applications (angles of elevation and depression) apart from the standard ones shown in the book. I say The Humongous Book of Trigonometry Problems covers only the basics. Now, while I was working on the problems, I just realized one thing: all problems were touched just once or twice. That means everything you wanted to know about a certain technique is pretty much limited to the scope of that problem or two and the author moves on to the next one. So, one may have a problem with it because he is probably better served with plenty of practice problems for a certain technique. Therefore, keep that in mind when making a decision whether or not to pursue The Humongous Book of Trigonometry Problems. My opinion is that Schaum's Outline of Trigonometry, 5th Edition: 618 Solved Problems + 20 Videos (Schaum's Outline Series) is by far the best trigonometry book I've worked with and taught me everything I need to know about the subject. It also covers the missing parts that I mentioned previously. The knowledge I've accrued from the book served me very well in Calculus and beyond. So, I recommend Schaum's Outline of Trigonometry, 5th Edition: 618 Solved Problems + 20 Videos (Schaum's Outline Series) over The Humongous Book of Trigonometry Problems. All in all, The Humongous Book of Trigonometry Problems offers a good value on the pedagogical level but for reinforcement, not so much.

Errata:
8.24 of Pg. 193: The final answer is incorrect. It should be cos(22.5 deg) = sqrt(2 + sqrt(2)) / 2.
10.45 of Pg. 239: The second final answer is incorrect as it is missing the coefficient of 3. It should be also x = 3arctan(-2 + 2 * sqrt(2)) + 3k * pi, k is any integer.
11.33 of Pg. 261-62: Square root both sides? Lol...no. Set it up as tan(x) = sqrt(3) and get x = {pi/3, (4*pi)/3}.
11.34 of Pg. 262-63: Same as before. Tan (theta / 2) = 1. Theta / 2 = arctan(1) to get theta / 2 = {pi/4, (5*pi)/4}. Multiply both sides by 2 to get theta = {pi/2, (5*pi)/2}

HASH(0x98fd2504) von 5 Sternen Good for people who are completely lost 29. April 2014
Von Katie Simon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you really need help understanding math, this is the book for you. What I didn't realize (and don't like) is that the book is basically math problems that have been answered and explained thoroughly. So, you can not actually try to answer the questions on your own first. Works well for using with a college textbook or math related workbook full of problems that you can actually attempt to complete.

HASH(0x98f1fe58) von 5 Sternen The Humongus Book of Trig is just another set of great problem solving examples 17. Januar 2013
Von Terrance R. Banach - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Super book for any student needing examples to speed him on his way to solid learning of trig. The Humongous Book Series has never let me down in the search for good examples to present any math category to my students. I also frequently recommend that they pick up a copy for their own use.
