J U N K- Might as well be in Spanish!
on December 8, 2011
The text starts out nice and smooth, and matches end of chapter work to chapter material. Then, all hell breaks loose and you cannot understand a thing as early as chapter 3. Nothing in the reading matches or educates students on any of the end of chapter problems. I spent an entire term deciphering these clown's textbook which was so distracting and unnecessary that I felt cheated and conned by the authors and publisher. Not to mention, it's one of the most expensive textbooks you get buy. Teachers love any textbook. They have all the answers and have fancy little programs to make tests and quizzes for them. Most students hate it and it should be thrown out of our universities. Pray you get an instructor that recognizes this awful masterpiece and properly educates you in real-world Quantitative Methods. The Access card provides you nothing but more misery! It is no help and provides no programs or help worth a flip. There are computer programs available that assist in doing these problems. Everything is accomplished on a computer now days and we should be learning how to execute problems electronically as if we live and learn in 2011. My future employer is going to look at the way I solve their Quantatative issues in handwritten long-form and fire me thanks to this textbook. Thanks a lot for this disaster Cengage!!! :[
