4Expectations met - Practical Financial Management
By Deb Davis
The book contains helpful information needed for the course. Without the book to refer to, the class would have been very tough. The professor did offer additional notes and handouts but much of the homework was in the book. The book has many problem examples and questions at the end of each chapter to further enhance the learning.

2Book came on time.
By Marisel
For what ever reason, this books flow just did not work for me. I was lost and the wording just did not compute with me. I found it to be a difficult read, much more difficult than accounting classes. Just my opinion though.
