4.0 out of 5 stars Excel with linear programming Feb. 25 2011
By Kenneth A. Cudnik - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
this seems to be the only book for linear programming that everyone wants to use since 2006. The resale on the used market is always strong. I used this book already for a previous class and am currently using it again. The examples are very complete. Along with the CD examples, you can learn LP with no problems just from the examples, just work with it, play with the example programs and you can figure it out
2.0 out of 5 stars After compared many sellers, I decided to purchase it ... Aug. 19 2014

After compared many sellers, I decided to purchase it because it came with CD. But all I received just the textbook itself. It is too much by book itself.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very good condition, came on time, included working CD Feb. 7 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you have to rent this book, it's worth the few bucks you have to pay, because it's really useful in Linear Programming and Optimization
