okay solutions manual, not great though.
on February 16, 2012
I really hate dealing with textbook companies, they make it so hard to find what you want, and these books are no exception, after making sure that the edition and volume was correct I ordered it, It's decent and usually helps, but as it is a "student" solutions manual only the odd solutions are provided, and the full solutions manual seems to be impossible to find. The worked out problems are usually pretty helpful if there is something you don't understand, but they still often skip steps and assume you know things you don't. In all honesty just plugging the numbers into wolfram alpha and then choosing the show steps option has been more detailed and helpful almost every time I've compared the two; The only exception being the story problems from the book that are worded strange and are difficult to even find out what it's asking you.
Given how much this manual costs I'd recommend just saving the cash, use wolfram alpha when you need to see a problem and if you need more help, hire a tutor, it will probably cost the same and do you a lot more good.
