    GREAT FOR COLLEGE AND REAL WORLD WORKING

    I was required to use this book for a class I took 2010 fall semester. This book is great. I actually ended up telling my teammembers about it and they might like to learn from it as well.

    It is clear and easy to read and has real-world type information to compare your studies too.

    Would recommmend.
