“I think the writing is superior. My students often comment that they read EVERY page. It’s not unusual to hear from students that this is a textbook they want to keep and use on the job. The self-assessments are excellent. And the PowerPoints are efficient and focus on the key points of each chapter.”-Adrian Guardia, Texas A&M University–San Antonio
