    I Also Recommend:

    A good reference.

    One of the selling points to this reference is the language. Because the work is aimed at businessmen rather than students, the work provides a more concise description of various concepts. All of these would be available within a standard college text (and this is why I picked up the work after needing the textbook I sold back to the college bookstore), but the strongest selling point is the price. Because the work omits rudimentary explanation in favor of clear but short explanations, the work is shorter and cheaper. Recommended as much as any other work that accomplishes the same goals.
