Designed specifically for the non-math major who will be using calculus in business, economics, or life and social science courses, Brief Calculus: An Applied Approach, 7/e, addresses students' weak math skills through added structure and guidance on how to study math. Special student-success-oriented sections include chapter-opening Strategies for Success; What You Should Learn--and Why You Should Learn It; Section Objectives; Chapter Summaries and Study Strategies; Try Its; Study Tips; and Warm-Up exercises. In addition the text presents Algebra Tips at point of use and Algebra Review at the end of each chapter.

### Table of Contents

Note: Each chapter includes an Algebra Review, Chapter Summary and Study Strategies, Review Exercises, and Sample Post-Graduation Exam Questions.
