The book goes over the information quite thoroughly. However, there are a few things that can be improved upon. The book only mentions one method of doing things while there are actually several that make more sense.

The answers in the back of the book help you check your work, but it does end up being a crutch that you lean on (once you figure out there are answers there).

A lot of good information, even if it is a high-school level book used in colleges.

I'm a 23 year old student that is going back to school. This book is great - it helped me understand debt and the value of long-term saving. It is the one book that I did not sell at the end of the semester, since I will continue to use it in the future. It was easy to read but the material took some work...

I was a math teacher in New Orleans. While teaching many kids from different backgrounds. I recognized one thing, that many of the students had not an overall use of math or interest in that matter; however when I applied monetary value to the math I would teach with real life stories from the book it caught alot of attention. While reading the book the examples in the book from the different industries as well as the application of different principals of math and how they are utilized is important to many students that I teach and even myself; allowing the connection between book and real life. ...Con: some of the material needs a better index in locating material and principles in the book. It also needs more breakdowns for the formulas, it seemed very spread out. I would love to see another edition that has formulas that are correlated or commonly used together in the literature, and index. The book is awesome and needed so I would love to see more editions and would use more. It is set-up as though a parent would go through basic concepts and ideas in finance for ones children or a teacher with students. More advanced Statistics may need to look else where but as for basic Stats it does its job in this and other sections of Finance/ math concepts.

Excellent book for learning the subject, with helpful exercises and answers to problems. Better (and a lot cheaper) than the 12th edition of the same text.
