Basic mathematics summary

    could anyone recommend me a book which summarises a lot of the precalculus material which I can use as a reference. I don't have much to spend.

    I used Principles of Mathematics by Allendoerfer and Oakley for precalculus studying. I found an older version online for about $10. You cannot go wrong with Lang, though. :smile:

    I was looking online on it for reviews and it people say that there is a lot of errors in the book, did you have any problem with these errors?

    I found one copy of this on amazon for £100, it seems that it is too old to find (I'm from the UK).
