In revising the second edition, the strengths of the prior editions were retained while reflecting the changes
in the study of trigonometry during the last ten years. This edition deletes the use of logarithms entirely,
increases the use of calculators, and changes from the column form of working identity problems to the
horizontal continuous equation form. Tables are still provided for finding trigonometric function values in 10-
minute intervals, tenth of a degree intervals, and hundredth of a radian intervals. The review of geometry is
still provided in an appendix.
The book is complete in itself and can be used equally well by those who are studying trigonometry for
the first time and those who are reviewing the fundamental principles and procedures of trigonometry.
Each chapter contains a summary of the necessary definitions and theorems followed by a solved set of
problems. These solved problems include the proofs of the theorems and the derivation of formulas. The
chapters end with a set of supplementary problems with their answers.
Triangle solution problems, trigonometric identities, and trigonometric equations require a knowledge of
elementary algebra. The problems have been carefully selected and their solutions have been spelled out in
detail and arranged to illustrate clearly the algebraic processes involved as well as the use of the basic

The Developer's Guide to Debugging
Software has bugs. Period.
That's true, unfortunately. Even the good old "hello, world" program, known to virtually every C and C++ programmer in the world, can be considered to be buggy. Developing software means having to deal with defects; old ones, new ones, ones you created yourself, and those that others brought to life....
The story of this book is quite simple: after the
first few hand transplants, we felt the need to have
regular meetings so that our clinical experiences
would be beneficially shared and serve as a basis
to draw some guidelines for the future. In so
doing, we soon realised that a huge amount of
original clinical data and...
