“I think the concept is great. I love the idea of having one department store and following it through all of the stages of the buying process.” ―Dr. Lorynn R. Divita, Baylor University, US
“The buying simulation is the main reason why I adopted this book.” ―Dong Shen, California State University-Sacramento, US
“The worksheets are the most beneficial part of this textbook, and my favorite because it forces students to use Excel® spreadsheets and visualize the numbers that I speak to in class lectures. This practical application is great for students and students usually say it helps them understand and see first hand that a career in buying is more numbers-oriented than they expected.” ―Tracy Repko-Kuboff, Youngstown State University, US
“Perry's is a unique book because of the interactive simulation approach to learning.” ―Kathy Chrucky, International Academy of Design & Technology-Chicago, US
