Basic College Mathematics
Key differences between 9th and 8th editions
 Period between current and previous publications: 3 years (2012 vs 2009).
 Lial's Basic College Mathematics was first published in 1991.
 The 9th Ed. consists of 10 chapters as well as its predecessor, but has 8 pages less.
 Two MyMathLab course options are now available: Standard MyMathLab courses and New ReadytoGo courses (provide students with all the same great MyMathLab features, but make it easier for instructors to get started).
 Guided Solution Exercises in the text margins and exercise sets guide students through the first few solution steps and are marked with a GS icon.
 Examples and exercises are adjusted or replaced with current knowledge.
