I bought this book to review business math for a civil service test. I found it to be very easy to follow. The sample problems were broken down in smaller parts so it was easier to understand how to solve the problem. The book covers a lot of topics so you get a good overall review. It is also good for the average consumer who deals with math on a daily basis. The only negative thing I found was that there were two or three problems that had errors in the calculations. No big deal!
