    Worst textbook ever

    This is the worst textbook I have ever had to use. The concepts are either not explained, or explained so poorly that even reading the material multiple times will not help you understand it any better. Many of the case problems ask you to perform tasks that were not covered in the chapter, so you are forced to spend many hours researching on the internet in order to complete the problems. This book is perfect for the person that wants to spend many frustrated hours in front of their computer.
