Intermediate Algebra for College Students by Robert Blitzer, custom edition, ISBN: 9780536698230 (We are using an edition created for Cabrillo College students. Hopefully you can find used copies. If you can find the 4th or 5th edition of this text online cheaply, it should work just fine.) I will put copies of the DVDs and CDs that come with the book in the MLC and ILC for you to use.
