Worst Textbook, Incorrect Information

By K. Cook - April 1, 2010

This was honestly the worst textbook that I have had since coming to college. It's like they didn't bother researching any of the topics they covered. The book was full of inaccuracies and outright wrong/incorrect information. Also, they cite Wikipedia for some of their mini-articles. If it isn't good enough for a 2 page paper in college, it isn't good enough for a nearly $200 textbook.

Wikipedia is not a source

By M D Baxter "mike2400" - October 18, 2011

I paid a lot of money for a textbook that contained citations from Wikipedia. Others have also complained about that. It is not a source and no one should pay $100 + for a textbook that would not be considered a valid academic source because of the references contained within. How thoroughly was this book prepared or was it just thrown together so there could be another "new edition" to get more $ out of the those who have to pay for it and use it. There is some contradictory information in this text as well. Granted there was some useful info in there but its validity is in question because of the sources used.

Poor - Just basic information

By Emilia "Artemisa" - August 11, 2010

Cases at the end of each chapter are superficial. It is easier to get more updated information from online sources like Wikipedia. Not recommended even for undergraduate students. 20 year-old people handle more information than this book.
