    Had to purchase for class, very informative however it seems to be a little outdated as far as numbers and dates goes. So if your for some reason not using this for a lecture class then I recommend keeping this in mind

    The information is either incorrect, difficult to understand or extremely outdated.

    This book was mandatory for class but it was a total wast of money! I opened this book 2 times. All of the information in this book can be looked up on google! Got an A in the class with no help from this BOOK! Do yourself a favor and don't buy the book if you can help it!
