Supplemental Materials

  • The Used, Rental and eBook copies of this book are not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


This book is a briefer paperback version of the widely-adopted Miller/Jentz Business Law Today: The Standard Edition. The Essentials offers the very same traits that have made that book so successful edition after edition - fundamentally that it provides the legal credibility and authoritativeness of a traditional business law book, while also offering the visual appeal and student friendly features students are used to seeing in books for many of their other courses. Though the book is fun for users to read, it does not accomplish this at the expense of important information - it goes into the necessary detail to completely explain law topics.

Interesting, clear, and applied, Business Law Today: The Essentials is your concise guide to the law and what it means in the business world--from contracts and secured transactions to warranties and government regulations. Easy to understand with an engaging writing style that is matched by vibrant visuals, Business Law Today includes coverage of contemporary topics that impact not only the business world, but your life such as identity theft. Fascinating features and intriguing cases highlight the material's practicality.

The text's companion website includes resources to help you study, such as sample answers to the end-of-chapter case problem features; Internet exercises; and interactive quizzes for every chapter.

Excellent resource April 21, 2011
This textbook is written for professionals and people studying to be professionals. However, it is clearly written and a good resource for someone serious about an dsto fitness, metabolism and training. Advanced Fitness [censored]sment And Exercise Prescription is an excellent resource for personal trainers, exercise science professionals and gym or fitness club personnel. This is the reference guide we use at the fitness center where I work, its a cheap textbook and very useful.
