Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I think the writing is superior. My students often comment that they read EVERY page. It's not unusual to hear from students that this is a textbook they want to keep and use on the job. The self-assessments are excellent. And the PowerPoints are efficient and focus on the key points of each chapter."-Adrian Guardia, Texas A&M University—San Antonio

"My students liked the book, and I found it was easy to teach to." -Jeffrey Fisher, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
