Buy what you need to get an A for less than 10% of this book and don't get robbed like I did.
I don't EVER write reviews, this book is so bad in my opinion, I will go out of my way to 1-star this and hope the editor/publisher goes out of business. misty e. vermaat should be ashamed of putting such nonsense out into the mainstream. I don't know how on earth this book was ever selected to be my courses textbook....
Unfortunately, this was a required text for class so for everyone else who has to use this, good luck..
