3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Keith O. Richards on 30 Mar. 2012
Format: Paperback
While the book itself is a comprehensive look at most of the maths needed in business and economics, it is dragged down by too many incorrect answers; I've found five so far, and I'm only on page 42. This is incredibly frustrating to a student, to say the least. Pearson has not made an errata sheet available for the title, which is a great annoyance, and quite sad on their part. This would be a four star review, but a maths text with incorrect answers is of little value.

Regarding the above reviews - I found it quite easy to find the answers available online on the site for this title. They are available for students, not just instructors. However, they are of dubious value, as mentioned.

Format: Paperback
I think the layout and the explanations are really good. However I don't think there are enough example problems to fully grasp the topics. Also the practice problems don't contain answers to check your work which is a real shame as there are lots of practice problems. Whats the point in doing them if you don't know if you've got them right or wrong?

This book is an ideal self-study option for anyone taking college/uni level calculus and algebra. Very straightforward examples and explanations. I very much liked the layout, it is not just a boring black and white textbook, but well structured.

Format: Paperback
Excellent book that introduces intermediate Mathematics for Economists and Business in didactically excellent way. Solutions are given to the relatively few worked examples but this book is pretty useless for self learners as all the Solutions to the exercises...and also the two additional Chapters are only available online...so I thought...and yes they are available online...but only to lecturers, NOT to the ordinary mass of paying students. Had I known this before I bought the book online I would never have bought it in the first place!
