Test Tables are included for each chapter as well that organize every question in that chapter in a table so professors can see – at a glance – which questions test on which learning objective and which level of learning. And, it is indicated which questions test on boxed material, which are essay questions, m-c questions, true-false questions, and which questions test on cases in the book, etc.

• IRCD (ISBN: 0077482123): The Instructor’s Resource CD includes the IM, CTB, Media Resource Guide, PPT slides, video notes, and digital asset library (all figures from the text).
