This textbook, unfortunately, is not for teaching yourself business math. Found that out the expensive way. I buy a lot of textbooks to read and learn from, but this is definitely a book that required a teacher or tutor. The concepts aren't difficult, but it's written to be more as a tool rather than a complete resource. Only buy it if you are going to take a business math class and this is the book your using.

I had to purchase this book for my business math class and overall I am happy with it. It explains the concepts well and is easy to understand. The quality is good. The only complaint I really have about it is that some of the answers are incorrect. All of the pages are also perforated. Whether that is positive or negative depends on what you want. I could care less about having the pages perforated but I wonder if that contributes to the price of the book. Personally, I think that it costs a bit more than it is worth but the price on Amazon was much better than at my school.

I teach an entry level business math course and have found this book to be a great resource at this level. it is a combination textbook and workbook, with tables for students to fill in as they work through exercises. The one problem with this is that the book is hard to resell if the student has written in the answers.The word problems are generally very useful in transitioning form the "how to" level to the "what is this good for level?". Some are a bit over-simplified but that can lead to good discussion. Highly recommend it.
