Pearson MyLab™ is the world's leading online self-study, homework, tutorial and assessment product designed with a single purpose in mind: to improve the results of all higher education students, one student at a time.

Please note: The duration of access to a MyLab is set by your instructor for your specific unit of study. To access the MyLab you need a Course ID from your instructor.

For two-semester courses in Finite Math & Applied Calculus or Mathematics for Business.

College Mathematics for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences, 14th Edition offers more built-in guidance than any other text for this course – with special emphasis on applications and prerequisite skills – and a host of student-friendly features to help students catch up or learn on their own. Its emphasis on helping students “get the idea” is enhanced in the new edition by a design refresh, updated data and applications.

Features & benefits
  • More than 300 completely worked examples introduce concepts and demonstrate problem-solving techniques.
  • Matched Problems accompany each of the worked examples to help students gain solid knowledge of the basic topics and assess their own level of understanding before moving on.
  • In order to emphasise problem solving, concepts, and computational skills, most derivations and proofs are omitted, except where their inclusion adds significant insight into a particular concept.
  • Full-colour design and modern look helps students navigate the text and enhances its pedagogical features. The revised design refresh is free of potentially distracting elements. The figures in the text have been re-rendered using the latest software and re-conceived to take advantage of a full colour palette in order to maximise their instructional potential.
  • The variety of exercise types and difficulty levels enable instructors to easily craft homework assignments tailored to their students’ needs:
  • Exercise sets at the end of each section consist of Skills Warm-up problems that review prerequisite knowledge specific to that section, followed by problems that are categorised according to level of difficulty (A, B, and C), followed by Applications.
  • Applications give students substantial experience in modelling and solving real-world problems. Almost every exercise set contains application problems that were derived from real-world situations.
  • Chapter Reviews include a comprehensive summary of important terms, symbols, and concepts, keyed to completely worked examples, and are followed by a set of Review Exercises.
  • A Diagnostic Prerequisite Test assesses students’ prerequisite skills prior to taking the course and provides a Basic Algebra Review to help them remediate in specific areas of need.
