Need student solutions manual
By johnnypm - October 31, 2012
I found the book to be interesting but some of the material was hard to grasp and unless you have some additional and supplemental material from your instructor this would only make it more difficult to understand. Another problem is the fact that there is no student solutions manual available to purchase with this book and there are only a few answers provided at the end of the book for end of chapter problems. I found the book almost as demanding as a calculus book so a solutions manual would be appropriate. I have a understanding of finance and accounting and yet I found the material somewhat hard to grasp so I can imagine how difficult it would be for a novice. The material needs to be presented in a better fashion and more examples need to be given for different scenarios.

This was my first purchase of a Kindle edition textbook. I am reading it on my iPad and on my computer. The Kindle edition is terrible. It's like reading a black and white book. Highlights that would normally appear on the margins of a traditional textbook are just thrown into the text inline with other text. It's difficult to read. There are very few graphics and those that are present are practically not viewable. I can pinch to zoom the graphic on the iPad but it's still difficult to see. There's no way to print a chart if it needs to be referenced so one has to bookmark and keep traversing back and forth to find a reference page that has a formula. And, if you need to reference information, as you commonly do for papers, there are no page numbers. Better hope your professor is OK with you referencing the "Kindle Location" instead of page numbers. I was so excited to see a textbook in Kindle format but it is such a let down. I'm very disappointed. I wish I had just... read more
