Very helpful book March 20, 2011

A book of beneficial knowledge as well as practical examples. It's helpful for my major in university. It is a good text book, presents material clearly and simplistically but effectively gets the point across and makes it easy to learn and retain. Love the book! I actually rented this book and have to say that now I wish I would have purchased instead of renting.
