There is a teachers edition and student edition.
The books cover the standards and objectives relativley well but not fully. Many concepts are mentioned and covered but not in enough depth. For instance, the role of goverment is mentioned in a paragraph but does not contain the detail the standards cover.
The assessments in this book are sub par. They are not very in depth, the book is mostly mutiple choice and true false. When there are essay or response questions they are related to DECA. The book does a good job using DECA Prep for examples and role play information.
The pictures, examples, and real life scenarios seem old and outdated. It seems as if Clip Art is mostly used.
There are cross curricular activities at the~end of every chapter, as well as four pages in the back that are full of business math functions and ratios.
The book is very "wordy." It seems almost as if it is written for the college level. There are many definitions and pages with no visual~content.
