Hi MathGroupers, This sounds like a quibble but I notice that the command PolynomialDivision is not documented in the Mathematica Book or in the Help Browser (not just in V3.0 but also in earlier versions). Is this an oversight or is there a possibility that I may not see it in later versions? I use this command a lot for my algebra classes in preference to PolynomialQuotient or PolynomialRemainder. By the way, I find the Mathematica Book to be well-written and readable. It does treat many features rather superficially though. The notebook, in particular, literally has hundreds of commands/functions and thousands of options. I would like to use it to prepare my math notes but the learning curve seems rather steep. The postings in this newsgroup seems to be rather skimpy on the notebook frontend so far. Has anyone out there use it in a serious way? Is there anything in MathSource which I can use? Thanks Chee
