    Recommend for anyone entering Supply Chain

    I LOVE, LOVE NOOKStudy. Allows highlighting & indexes your highlights and notes for ease in finding them later. Searching the text for needed information is so easy, I don't ever want to go back to a hardback text book.

    This text is a great resource for those entering supply chain. It gives layman explanations to terms and is very easy to follow.
