Cliff Ragsdale is an innovator of the spreadsheet teaching revolution and is highly regarded in the field of management science. The 4th edition retains the elements and philosophy that has made its past editions so successful. New topics have been added as well as examples that are relevant to decision making in today's business world. This new edition of SPREADSHEET MODELING AND DECISION ANALYSIS provides succinct instruction in the most commonly used management science techniques and shows how these tools can be implemented using the most current version of Microsoft Excel for Windows. This text also focuses on developing both algebraic and spreadsheet modeling skills. In our opinion, Ragsdale has sufficient technical depth, including algebraic modeling, in all of the topics we teach (linear programming, decision analysis, queuing models, simulation, and forecasting). The text is well written with a wide range of problems (easy to very difficult) from a variety of applications. [Ragsdale] has a very straightforward presentation of a difficult topic. It is readable for students and useful for professors.
