Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is the best revision that I have seen in years. I think the students will appreciate this also. This is more in line with how I teach the class."

"I am a strong supporter of your text and like the effort that is put into making the text better."

"Overall, I think the changes are positive. I like this new presentation better than going into so much detail about the worksheet. I like that you are putting that information in appendix A."

(On new Chapter 4) "This chapter provides an excellent upgrade of the chapter materials over the previous edition. Good job with the updated version."

"I am very impressed with this revision. […] I like this revision very much and plan to continue using this text."
