So great  August 7, 2011

This is a great textbook. The format of the textbook is approachable and the information is immediately useful. The chapters are short, and make studying an enjoyable task. This textbook arrived on time and I could not believe the price.

Marketing : The Core: 4 out of 5 stars based on 2 user reviews.


Marketing: the Core 4/e by Kerin, Hartley and Rudelius continues a tradition of leading the market with contemporary, cutting-edge content presented in a conversational student-oriented style, supported by the most comprehensive, innovative, and useful supplement package available. This text and package is designed to meet the needs of a wide spectrum of faculty—from the professor who just wants a good textbook and a few key supplements, to the professor who wants a top-notch fully integrated multimedia program.

Marketing: the Core utilizes a unique, innovative, and effective pedagogical approach developed by the authors through the integration of their combined classroom, college, and university experiences. The elements of this approach have been the foundation for each edition of Marketing: the Core and serve as the core of the text and its supplements as they evolve and adapt to changes in student learning styles, the growth of the marketing discipline, and the development of new instructional technologies. The distinctive features of the approach are illustrated below:

High Engagement Style - Easy-to-read, interactive, writing style that engages students through active learning techniques.

Personalized Marketing - A vivid and accurate description of businesses, marketing professionals, and entrepreneurs—through cases, exercises, and testimonials—that allows students to personalize marketing and identify possible career interests.

Marketing Decision Making – The use of extended examples, cases, and videos involving people making marketing decisions.

Integrated Technology - The use of powerful technical resources and learning solutions.

Traditional and Contemporary Coverage - Comprehensive and integrated coverage of traditional and contemporary concepts.

Rigorous Framework - A pedagogy based on the use of Learning Objectives, Learning Reviews, Learning Objectives Reviews, and supportive student supplements.
