    I agree, no student support

    Having an answer key would improve any students performance and inhance studying for exams. I attend class once a week...that's a long time to wait for the 'right' answer.

    No Student Support

    This text book is lacking one important section; i.e the answer to the problem set. I am a full time student with a fulltime job. I have a very demanding schedule which leaves me with very little time to do home work. If I need to comfirm my answer before I turned in my work, I surly have a big problem because their is no answers in the book and I don't have time to go to an Accedemic support center for help. If anyone knows where I can find the answers for the problem sets in this book please inform me at Thanks,
