Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For classroom purposes...the book is dated with a copyright of 2006; therefore, Internet research is a definite must. It is difficult to use as a reference book because the chapter numbers are not included within the chapters; constantly had to find figures or tables within the chapter just to determine the chapter numbers. Chapter numbers were important to identify the constraints on assignments and exams.

In addition, it was difficult to accurately reference chapters within the book (contains works from several authors) because the copyright dates of other author's work is not included in the book.
