Review:

I think it is a very good book and will continue to use it. I have selected ASW over other texts because it still covers the modeling and formulation aspects well. These are often obscured or absent in the spreadsheet-based texts.

The book provides a very good coverage of computer output. I have been using ASW Intro to MS for the last 15 years, and I have no intention of switching to another textbook.
