To equally help the beginners as well as experts, the Skills in Mathematics series aims at helping the students take their knowledge and application for various mathematical concepts to a whole new level. The books in this series have been designed so as to work as elementary textbooks which will play a crucial role in building the concepts from scratch till the end and help in preparation for various competitive examinations.
This master piece on Algebra takes an engaging and easily understandable approach to make students confident in tacking mathematics problems and is infused with the author's passion for teaching mathematics to the engineering aspirants. The book has been divided into 15 chapters in total namely Complex Numbers, Equations, in equations and Expressions, Sequences and Series, Mathematical Induction, Permutations and Combinations, Binomial Theorem, Determinants, Inequalities, Probability, Binomial Theorem (Any Rational Index), Exponential and Logarithmic Series, Logarithms and their Properties, Partial Functions, Matrices and Set Theory, each containing definitions along with figures for better understanding of the topics. The contents of the book have been devised to cover the syllabi of and serve as a textbook for all engineering entrance examinations being conducted in India. The fact that Algebra is the foundation for higher mathematics and the further work in mathematics, science and engineering all depends upon one's proper groundings in the algebraic methods has been kept in mind. Solved examples have been given in between each chapter for on spot assessment of the concepts discussed in the chapter. Exercises at the end of each chapter have been divided into three levels with various types of questions such as subjective questions, MCQs and fill in the blanks. A section containing previous years' questions has also been included in the book to give the aspirants an insight into the question pattern and the level of the questions asked.
This is a must have textbook which starts from fundamentals and gradually builds your concepts upto the level required for Engineering Entrances and finally will place you among the toppers.
