The Eleventh Edition of Practical Business Math Procedures provides innovative learning tools and real-world examples that will support, engage, and motivate business math students in the classroom. The goal of the 11th edition is to personalize the learning experience for all business math students to promote engagement, achievement, and lifelong learning. The text motivates with the integration of interesting real world examples and photos from the Wall Street Journal, Kiplinger’s, and many other business journals. Jeffrey Slater's Practice Business Math Procedures is the most popular and widely used book for this course and it is carefully written and developed to support students with little math experience by providing summary practice tests, numerous exercises, supporting tutorial videos on DVD, and much more.

Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.

"Basic, elementary" April 30, 2014
"This is a great book that is valuable both for a course and if you have an interest and want to learn on your own. It is basic, so if you have taken accounting than you should look elsewhere to further your knowledge. It is thorough and detailed, and all the assignments are a natural extension of what has been covered in the material. There is also a DVD that covers how to solve problems which is extremely helpful in case you get stuck. It gets really in depth and technical which some people didn't like, but that complaint doesn't make a lot of sense to me as I think that's what text books are for."
