From the first day of class, my Engineering Economics professor proceeded to badmouth this text. He pointed out inaccuracies, inconsistencies, and points where the concepts were just presented poorly. In fact, he disliked it strongly enough that we only used it for homework problems (and even then, he often had to clarify points). I find it hard to justify purchasing or using a textbook that costs nearly $150 for just homework problems. The other material, quite frankly, is super-simple stuff such as compound interest, that could be learned from online resources or from a good lecture series.

Long story short, if your professor states you need to purchase the book, go for it. If you're an instructor considering using the book to teach a class, however, please take the time to read through it beforehand to make sure it's worth the investment.

I know this is a text book, but he does it methodically with great understanding. The book is well edited with no mistakes I can find. For an engineering type text book accuracy is essential. I keep this on my engineering reference bookshelf and refer to it often. I just can't seem to remember the fine details; I know very well, through hard experience, how a spreadsheet can get you in trouble without knowing the basic essentials.
