2.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this Kindle e-book. It does not meet the requirements for most courses. 21 Nov 2013
By Foster Glascock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This Kindle e-book's description should read "Does not include any access to ...premium content". Without access to the Pearson premium content, you will be unable to complete your course of study. The e-book of this title from CourseMart does include premium content.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative & Recent 14 July 2013
By Danielle Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was a required buy for class, although I didn't particularly mind this book. Terminology especially was very well defined, and honestly reading the book was probably better than going to class. Not to say that you shouldn't attend lectures, I simply had a very boring professor that was hard to pay attention to. This book made it easier to learn the material by comparing it with the professors lecture slides. Also did practice problems from the book, some of which were sort of tedious, but I suppose that's how they make sure you really know the material.

I never tried to use any supplemental online material from the book. I believe it did come with an online key, but it was never used so I can't say anything about it either way. I purchased the hardcover version of the book, not a digital copy.
