Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is student friendly and a good read. It is well written with several features and ancillary packages that enhance instruction and student learning...However, Bowman/ Kearney does it better, with clarity, and ease of understanding in an introductory text than the competition." Dr. Mohamed Yamba, California University of Pennsylvania
