I bought this for my daughter who is doing business A level. Everything you need to know is here in an easy to read and understand format. My daughter uses it all the time and keeps saying things like 'this book is great' and 'I don't know what I would have done without this book' Her grades in assignemnts are all A's but she does put the time in to get them. A very useful book for students of buiness.
I have used other books by Colin Barrow et al and they have always been well written and covered the subject matter well. I have great respect for the Dummies series as a whole being a lecturer myself.
In summary a very useful business book which is well written and all the terms are explained with examples, buy with confidence.
However, the examples do not appear. Equations and balance sheet calculations are referenced in the text, but there is no sign of them on the screen, making it fairly useless as a learning exercise....
UPDATE - Amazon have removed the Kindle version from the store until this is sorted. I have now downloaded from iBooks and it is great.
