The book was ok; was a needed text.What was awesome which warrants 5 stars is Amazon and their rental options. This was far and away the best anywhere. I love the convenience of printing my own label and returning materials when it's convenience for me. Thanks!
This is a amazing book on the topic of business law. It’s straight forward and has quite a few cases that relate to the topic(s). It almost always finishes on a paragraph just before an inserted case, diagram, table, etc and that’s a large plus for me because I hate flipping back and forth, I would rather read in a (mostly) straight line. (If that makes sense!). I did take off one star because the ink color of the text is awful. It’s a blue hue that’s somewhere between light and medium blue and it’s rough on the eyes.
Satisfied this book is digital and has perfect references in which I frequently used thanks to the kindle app. It was simple and convenient to navigate and the book itself was simple to comprehend. Perfect book and amazing recommendation.
My professor recommended that we this book from our local bookstore because they have a unique condensed copy that only contains the chapters covered in the course, has B&W pages, softcover, etc. and he said it was the cheapest option. SO I had bought that book for $170 brand fresh because the bookstore was all out of used books to rent ($75) or used ($120). I got online anyway and found this book on Amazon. I used the "Look Inside" feature to compare this ver of the book to the one I had bought from the bookstore. THEY ARE THE SAME EXACT BOOK, WORD FOR WORD! This ver just has more chapters, but it only costs $50 to rent it for a semester! Needless to say, I ordered this book from Amazon that night, and returned the other copy to the bookstore the next day to obtain my $170 back. I just hope it will be simple to return this one at the end of the semester because I have never returned anything by mail TOM LINE: If you are taking MGMT 455 at Purdue, look no further. You have found the cheapest method to obtain the book for the class right here. It's the same exact book and for a that won't leave you wondering how you're going to eat for the next month.
I had to use the online options, which were not available solo; I wound up buying the fresh book despite having this one that barely stays together. I was a bit shocked at the physical state of the quality of the book, and I'm glad that it will be shipped back soon since I don't need it anymore. I'm kinda scared that I'll lose pages if I carry it around.
It is BLAW its not going to be fun or interesting no matter what. The reading is kind of scatter brained and isn't always simple to follow. Best method I learned to retain a chapter was go to the end look at the word glossary for the chapter and then go to the end of the book and read the definitions first then go back and skim through the chapter.
I've had to take a couple of law classes for business. This book walks the reader through every portion allowing them the possibility to understand everything from jurisprudence to contractual law. If it were important to take a other law class utilizing this text I wouldn't think twice about renting it again.
Required this book for an introductory business law course (covering only about 10 of the 50 chapters) yet opted to it instead of renting because I read it would be helpful for the REG CPA exam (1/3 of which is Business Law). The textbook is well-written and provides all info in an understandable, concise manner...after completing the course I will definitely use the material in the other 40-or-so chapters to study for that part of the CPA exam.
This book is one of the best reading text books I have come across in a long presents the material in a manner that is both understandable and enjoyable. Yes I said "enjoyable" with regards to a text book. The examples provided explain the material and provides true globe relevant satisfied if your teacher selects this text book for your business law class.
Got this book a small beat up, I didn't think anything of it. It was all highlighted and the binding, especially towards the middle of the book was beautiful loose. Like a whole section of pages was separated from the binding already. I asked my colleagues at work who also go to the same school as me and they said that it's super common, these are used books etc. And that's true, I usually rent from the school and the books always have ears, sometimes pages are missing, people tag them, etc. I used the book, normal use, nothing out of the ordinary. Return the book and obtain charged $150 because I was responsible for the damage. I called and they are refunding me but this is ridiculous. I am sure various people act robotic like and pack these books and un-package these books, and what looks normal for one may not look normal for the other, however, when dealing with a used book, sent to you by an online source, I now understand why it is not a trustworthy method. Will be renting at school now. $20 more it would've been for this particular book, but it would've saved me a headache.
Carrying a massive and thick textbook to class daily is an unnecessary struggle; therefore, choosing a LooseLeaf over a traditional textbook is convenient if you want to decrease the weight in school materials. Personally, when attending my Management 240 course, we primarily focused on one chapter for two to three days so naturally I would put within my class binder only the chapter pages needed.
I loved this book for the business law class I had to take. I actually read every chapter, as I was supposed to. The method it is written, I was really able to follow along and understand what I was reading. Most of the case studies are beautiful well known cases, so it makes it more interesting to read about things that you may already know about.
The book binding was broken; took a very long time to have this notice delivered to one of the customer representatives. The entire phone conversation took 30+ minute - I have not ordered the book again since I did not want to obtain another not good quality textbooks from amazon.
I’m giving two stars because the content in the book is very interesting and appears to be well written. However, the book arrived damaged. The front cover was torn and scuffed as well as the binder. Some of the pages inside the book were wrinkled and dirty as if they’d been stepped on. An interesting note is that the box was not damaged at all so I’m left to assume it was already damaged when it was placed in the box and shipped to me as “new”. I’m reordering in hopes that I have better luck with the next one.
I read this textbook cover to cover and found it to be an perfect overview of the subject. It takes into acc the practical problems arising in the export/import of goods, services, and intellectual property.
Simple to understand and read. Gave it a 3 star rating for the wear and tear on the book. I’m currently renting it for the fall semester and the binding is coming apart ( was already received like this) hope I don’t obtain charge full for the book at the end of the lease.
I am currently a student online in a Law class and this was the required book. I was not sure at the time I purchased if I wsa going to hold this book or resale it. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed the book and will hold for future reference. Anyone that is in school, working in business, this is a amazing tool to have. It is simple to read and understand. This book has created learning business law easy.
This book had missing chapters which caused me to fail two of my exams. It jumps from page 362 to page 427. So you could imagine the amount of info I was missing for my class. Chapter 16 through 19 were missing from this book. Please do not rent this book. I have also taken images of the book as well to ensure that this is not a joke.
