4Cheap and reliable
By Derek Foret
The cost of the paperback Indian version is perfect and should be a model for all text books. I have a difficult time understanding the examples but the text and explanations are helpful and clear. The paperback is in black and white but personally that doesn't affect anything.

1very bad situation if you end up with a poor professor ...
By Keri
If you must buy this book for a course, you don't have a choice but to get it, of course. But as far as the content, this book does not adequately explain the concepts, and (even worse) does not have enough examples. The answers to end-of-chapter review problems are sometimes given...and sometimes not! You are in a very, very bad situation if you end up with a poor professor and this book, because you will not be able to "teach yourself" the material, as the text does not have enough detailed examples and doesn't have answers to the practice problems. I don't even understand the purpose of having practice problems if there are no answers.
Overall, I cannot recommend the book, because it is not a sufficient resource for learning the material. You will find yourself relying very heavily on outside material.

3An okay textbook
By Mike S.
It is an okay, but not great book. The one advantage it has is that it does go through a lot of examples, which do help with some end of chapter problems. However there are at least a couple instances where the examples are done wrong (one springs to mind in the income tax chapter). The examples also provide a lot of detail and descriptions of the various steps when it is not completely clear how to get from one step to another. Most likely it will be a book that you get because you are taking a class that requires it. It does lay out the basic concepts you need to know to get through a class pretty well. But it is not necessarily something you would keep for a reference guide necessarily should you ever need the stuff again after you take the class.
