Review:

"My students love CengageNOW. I have received feedback from students stating that they love the fact that they get immediate feedback using CengageNOW and can work through problems multiple times which helps them to understand the concepts associated with the problems."

"The reading level is excellent, and the book is easy for students to navigate. Also, the comprehensive problem in Chapter 4 is an excellent learning tool!"
