From the Book Description:
This text has been written in clear and accurate language that students can read and comprehend. The author has minimized the number of explicitly state theorems and definitions, in favor of dealing with concepts in a more conversational manner. This is illustrated by over 250 worked out examples. The problems are extremely high quality and are regarded as one of the text's many strengths. This book also allows the instructor to select the level of technology desired. Trench has simplified this by using the symbols C and L. C exercises call for computation and/or graphics, and L exercises are laboratory exercises that require extensive use of technology. Several sections include informal advice on the use of technology. The instructor who prefers not to emphasize technology can ignore these exercises.
