Great Class Resource  April 11, 2014
by


I decided to buy a set of these books as I teach a Business and Entrepreneurship class to high school students. I always use online resources and references, but I figured maybe the students would enjoy a paper guide. I ordered 5 books on sale, and another 10 at normal pricing. They all arrived in perfect condition and withing 2 weeks. I have Incorporated these books into my everyday class routine as the students really enjoy them, and I find them to be thorough and skill building. The books cover many aspects of business, and breaks it down to a easy understand level, but then combines many topics into a advanced "big picture" so to say. My favorite part of this book is the in class activities where it makes projects and tasks for the students to work together in real life business situations and build the skills that all businessmen and women need. Also, the book is easy to read, and is enjoyable for the students. They do not seem to dread lugging this book from the shelves to their desks, but ask what activity we are doing today as they find it an enjoyable experience. It was easy for me to incorporate this into the existing curriculum and the topics set by the board that we have to cover. Many of my existing activities and handouts coincide with the lessons in the book. This book is a great resource for anyone teaching a business or entrepreneurship class. The students like it, and I find it to be thorough and intuitive. It arrived on time in great shape, and I am more than satisfied with this addition to my class, it was a great investment.
