"This text has just the right amount of instruction in terms of scope. It can be used both to enhance previous instruction and it can be used to introduce topics"— Kelly Mansfield, Kaplan College
"Love this chapter, if I could have written it I would have, but now I don’t have to!"— Penny Janson, Career Core Program Director, Bryant & Stratton College
"The sequence of the material is excellent, flowing well according to how students would have to think through and then do the activities. Additionally, the balance between explaining why something should be done (strategy) and how to do it (process) is very understandable."— Ross Thomson, Bryant & Stratton, Albany, NY
"The new Jump Start feature is great! Not only is the feature interesting, but it is quick. Students will readily gain an understanding and appreciation of what the chapter is about. I believe it will serve as an incentive to reading, whereas most introductions are often a "turnoff" and do the opposite."— Ross Thomson, Bryant & Stratton, Albany, NY
"I believe this text has hit a home run and will provide the student as well as the instructor a wonderful experience in and out of the classroom."— Larry Bohn, Spencerian College, Louisville, KY
