Review:

This text is straight-forward with good assignment material, excellent support material.

The color and attractiveness of the book was the main reason I adopted this book, but also the availability of videos was important.

The strengths of this text are organization, sequencing of topics, flexibility, and a good selection of problems.

This text has good use of real companies, and news notes. The exhibits are clear and usually easy to understand. The other piece I like is the ability to choose the order that the material is covered in the book.
