Book Description

November 1, 2003 0764119842 978-0764119842 4
Here are understandable explanations of subjects related to business law and the legal environment. Separate chapters discuss the origin and nature of law, contracts in their many forms, negotiable instruments, banking procedures, types of business organization, legal definitions of crimes and torts, the concept of property, environmental law, labor-management relations law, intellectual property and computer law, and more. Business Review books are designed for classroom use, but are also valuable as self-teaching volumes for businesspersons engaged in various fields. When used in college business courses, these titles make fine supplements to main textbooks. Instructors in adult education and brush-up programs often choose these books as their main classroom text. Each title includes review questions with answers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for Clep Exam December 10, 2004
This book is all you need to pass the clep Exam. The book has a little bit of too much information than you actually need for the exam. There are 26 chapters in the book, but all you need to study is 20 chapters. You can select those chapters that u need to read by going to Cleps website ([...]) and look at the outline of the exam.

I took the exam recently and got a score of 70. I studied for one week 10 hours/day for the test. 80% of the questions were on contract and breach of contract. The rest were a mixture of questions. The test contained a lot of scenario questions pertaining mostly to contracts.

Remember to study the "terms" at the end of each chapter, study the "glossary" section and "You should remember" in each chapter and questions and answers in each chapter and you should be good to go.

If u need more pointers shoot me an email at

5.0 out of 5 stars Great study guide or primer December 14, 2001
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In addition to being an excellent resource for small business owners, this book is recommended as a preparation for the CLEP Business Law examination (3 lower-level college credits) by a number of people. I second that opinion, especially if you are looking to hit the higher percentiles.
This isn't a dry academic text, but an easy to read text that covers the basics with a minimum of handholding. Hardwicke presents the critical information that managers need to know, in a down to earth book.
Highly recommended for CLEP or DANTES candidates.

I bought this book to study for the CLEP Business Law I exam. I realized I could also use it for the Dantes Business Law II exam. I passed both, and am keeping it for a handy desk reference.
Nicely organized, good examples, and easy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Business Law (Barron's Business Review Series) May 1, 2000
I used this as study material for the Business Law CLEP#20. Fantastic resource. Very easy read, end of chapter questions and cases. If your looking to CLEP Business Law, this makes it easy. I think it will also make a great resource for the DANTES Business Law II.

Business Law is a down to earth book that explains many topics that are critial to those in business. Clearly explains many different legal topics that affect business. This book helped me realize key parts and phrases that I was leaving out of documents. I now better understand many of the legal ramifications of descisions made in the workplace. Business Law is an excellent review for the 'on-the-go' business person.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT CLEP AND DANTES PREP March 8, 2005
I passed both the CLEP BL1 and Dantes BL2 by studying this resource. My scores on both were 71. You should not need any other materials to supplement, but make sure you know the content well. The tests are quite difficult, especially the Dantes. Buy this book, study for a week or two, and you should be ready to pass both.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for the Business Law I CLEP and beyond April 6, 2003
This is an outstanding resource if you plan to CLEP Introductory Business Law. It's organized, easy to read and encapsulates what you need to know in easy to understand language. If you're taking Business Law II, it makes an invaluable reference. I passed the Intro to Business Law CLEP with a 60, using this book, and "Essentials to Business Law I" which was bundled with it. If you're serious about passing the CLEP and you don't want to invest a ton of money in a book to prepare for it, this one is worth its weight in gold! I give it 5 stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars A CLEP Must Have Study Guide February 22, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I passed the Introductory Business Law CLEP using this book, which I had previously failed using Orr's Review for the CLEP. The Special Topics section included information needed to pass that was not even mentioned in Orr's book. Also included, are examples that provide a much clearer understanding of the topics and how to apply them. There is a lot of material to digest, so give yourself a good week to study from this book. Each chapter includes boxes titled YOU SHOULD REMEMBER, these are key, at a minimum you should be knowledgable on these points. Good Luck.

This book is great. I actually needed the newer edition, but I always order older editions because textbook upgrades are generally a scam. This book is great for the basics of law.
