What are the three most important changes that we should make to strengthen the book?

You are doing a good job of keeping these chapters current and we believe they already have the strength we require.

 

Overall, a good text, good end of chapter exercises, and usually good case studies.

 

Are the end-of-chapter cases and exercises useful? Are there any exercises that you would not use in your class?      I would consider using all the end of chapter cases and exercises.  They were all interesting and would help students understand the concepts better.

 

Based on these sample chapters, would you strongly consider adopting the new text? Why or why not?

Yes, I definitely would use the Robbins text in the future and do plan on using it when I teach the course.
