The book is designed to provide solid mathematical preparation and foundation for students going on to business courses and careers.

In keeping with the philosophy of "practice makes perfect," the text contains over2,000 realistic business math exercises--many with multiple steps and answers designed to prepare students to use math to make businessdecisions and develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. Many of the exercises in each chapter are written in a "you are themanager" format, to enhance student involvement.
