Good July 19, 2011
The textbook is concerned with application, as well as coverage of labor history, laws, and practices. Excellent examples and reads easily. Highly suggested for study of high level mathematics. Really good detailed explanation of everything and good problems. I have rented this textbook from ecampus, it delivered in the estimated time and in a great condition.
