|Almost all of the equations and variables are scrambled and useless. Go to http://2012books.lardbucket.org/ for a better version! The other Suranovic texts have the same problems. Also, some of the graphs are so fuzzy they are unreadable. Again, lardbucket has good graphics, so there is no reason to reinvent the wheel. Just copy his version. He has nice bookmarks and other useful navigation too.|

I really like this text, and I've found it to be superior to the $90 print text I was using previously. The only section that gives me (and my students) any trouble is the section referenced about on persuasive speaking. There are two main problems: excess focus on theoretical models and obtuse language.
Each sub-section starts with the names of theorists my students have never heard of, and explains those theories with a lot of meta-language which my students rejected out of hand. Phrases like "cognitive dissonance is an aversive motivational state" and "It is an ethical imperative to be persuasively literate" are needlessly complicated and cause my students to tune out. The material is important, but it seems like an instance where the author was fully engulfed in his/her area of expertise and explained things in a way that was useful only to those who are fully ensconced in the discourse.

|5.1 Rules of Exponents|
Should say: Simplify (x^6)(x^12)(x)
but appears to say: Simplify (x^6)(x^12x), sort of. The main problem is that the last "x" is super-scripted, so it is in the exponent with the 12. But another problem is that the other "x"s look like subscripts.
Similarly, the Answer is x^19, but the "x" appears to be a subscript.
For beginning students, typesetting issues like this cause great confusion.
These typesetting issues are problematic enough that I will not use this text for my students.
|7/22/2015 16:31:58||Elementary Algebra|
Answer to Example 3
Should say: (x+y)^22
but appears to say: (x+y)22
The main problem is that the typesetting is too small in many places and so the exponents are not distinguishable as exponents. This occurs throughout the page and section and book. For example, farther down the page, Example 4 says "Simplify: 2x8y•3x4y7"
But should say "Simplify: 2x^8y•3x^4y^7
So it is not the case that just the *answers* are too small to be written correctly.
For beginning students, typesetting issues like this cause great confusion.
These typesetting issues are problematic enough that I will not use this text for my students, which is really a shame.

|Chemical formulas and reaction equations in the PDF and DOCx formats have some format errors, compared to the HTML.|
In the PDF, Ch. 14 and 15 for example have many symbol characters replaced with boxes (bad font substitution)? Those symbols do exist in the DOCx version.
In both DOCx and PDF, many chemical formulas that appear inline in the text do not have the # of a given atom as subscript, although it appears that way in the HTML. That becomes a readability and accuracy problem for the PDF/DOCx forms.

|pg. 320, the Break-even equation has a '+' sign and should be a division sign. It is wrong in the "Key Equation" box and also where they show how they computed the answer just below. So it should say:|
"$125,000 = $50,000 / 00.40"
and for some reason, it lists the second equation twice.
(This is not the first Type-o I've seen, but probably the most confusing one for the reader so far.)
I love to proofread! My husband is a CS professor and I proof-read his grants and publication papers all the time. Do you want to hire someone to proofread your textbooks? I was a Math major at Brown University, and did engineering at Stanford, and I'd love a stay-at-home, part-time job. Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org

Good morning, I am concerned about the illustration in this text on breakeven point in sales dollars. Typically, it is Total Fixed Expenses/Contribution Margin Ratio. Please see attached. Neither versions of this text seem to be properly formatted nor the examples correctly calculated. I just wanted to bring this up because I have had a few frustrated and confused students on the subject. Thank you for all you do!

In Section 7.2, "Make-or-Buy Decisions", a table listed in the answer to the question regarding "what information did Amy find to help Best Boards..." has the wrong column caption. Not only does this table not have a figure or table number (like most of the book does), it says that the column is for "Total Annual Cost at 2,000 Units" when the supporting text following this figure correctly states that it is for 10,000 units.
This table/figure can also be seen on your website's copy of the book here: https://saylordotorg.github.io/text_managerial-accounting/s11-02-make-or-buy-decisions.html
