Algebra/Trigonometey (Precal) books with rigor?

  1. Feb 6, 2014 #1
    I am an aspiring mathemarician and wanted to know algebra/trig books with rigor. I have sullivan pre cal/ stewart/mcguie and these are extremely easy books. I enjoy the sullivan book because of its wide range of topics( introduction to vectors) but the exercises are extremely easy.

    The best pre cal book I own is by Cohen and the problems are harder then the other books I own.
    Yet I want to get a book or more that are more challenging then Cohen. Any ideas?

    You can consider Serge Lang's Basic Mathematics and the two books by Gelfand Trigonometry and Algebra

    How about another old one: Principles of Mathematics by Allendoerfer/Oakey?
