The textbook has good information regarding Human Resources but beware of the accompanying website. If you are using this for Distance Learning classes you many be required to log onto the Boulander website to listen to video lessons. The website is very hard to navigate. If you are using a used textbook, you have to pay for an access code. This is not obvious, and the website denies access without telling you that you have to pay for the service. Very confusing. Then, once on the website, over half the students in my class were having trouble downloading the lessons. If you are using a wireless modem or an older laptop, you may not be able to properly download. Laptop system requirements were not posted on the website. Some of the practice questions from the website are strange. The student has to guess what the test maker wants, rather than be tested on a student's knowledge. The way this class has been administrated by Boulander is in complete contrast to the content of Human Resources.
Hard to read and most of the time, hard to follow.
