too heavy, too obscure, too expensive, and required
on February 28, 2014
This book weighs over 7.4 lbs. The authors seem to try to save space by omitting steps in the calculations they demonstrate. Moreover, the footnotes are printed in a tiny font, so it's difficult to read how the equation was derived. What else? The sample problems in the textbook are too simplified to help one solve the more complex homework problems. Why did the publisher print such a heavy book with so much empty white space on every page? I'd rather carry a much lighter book with fewer photos and more complex worked problems. This is accounting, not graphic design! If you must buy it, I suggest splurging for the PROBLEM SOLVING SURVIVAL GUIDE 15th ed. published by Marilyn F. Hunt ISBN 978-1118-344149. Even better, buy the digital version of the textbook, and the physical copy of the survival guide. Your back will thank you...and your grades will too.
