This is the worst course ware I've dealt with in 13 years of school - and the most expensive.
The online experience is clunky, glitchy and frequently had WRONG answers. Pearson should be ashamed of this product and for charging students so much for it. Study guides are just a repeat of homework assignments.
The teaching mechanisms are flawed, multiple choice questions teach you nothing.
Examples given as learning tools are frequently absurd and pointless like [parents will buy fewer books for their child than the government would have for them buy because parents see less return on their investment than the government does]. Stupid.

If you have other course options that do not require you to use this book and online course, take them.

It's great value: I rented the book for the semester. I received it fast. It was in great condition. I did my best to keep it such. The return is so easy: just click, print the labels, and drop. Great service! Thank you.

I purchased this book from amazon because it was too expensive at the campus bookstore. As a learning tool, I do not care for it but I am sure it has all of the information it supposed to.

This book is ripped at the seam and none of the pages will stay inside. It's also tattered and some of the pages are ripped down the middle. I'm going to have to buy a new one. Thanks a lot.
