It would be beneficial for the authors to update the references in their templates to match the current year they are displying, i.e. 2013 and 2014 vs 2009 & 2010.
Students pay a large sum of money based on student income and tuition fees that the data should be vetted before being released. It's a carbon copy of years past, which leads one to believe nothing has changed and should purchase a discounted book.
This book was used for my MBA 570 class at Saint Leo University. The book in my own words just "stinks" to put it politely. Some of the answers in the book aren't even correct. If universities and/or colleges are going to use this book, the author really needs to revise the book and put a "how" to solve certain things within the book. Like show step by step how to solve some of the very complex material, don't just put it in words; many students don't understand "just words," they need examples. Our professor REQUIRED us to put everything and solve every single problem in an Excel spreadsheet and for us Excel dummies we need further explanation than this book provides in order to solve the problems. Not a good book at all.
