Text Book

Here are links to venders who sell or rent our text book: "Focus on Personal Finance"
The text book is also available at the college book store as well as numerous other outlets.
It should also be available as an on-line text book.
You can use any of the editions below. They are all basically the same. Required assignments are on this class web site
Only optional and recommended assignments are taken from the book. You can find similar assignments in any of the editions.
DISCLAIMER: I receive NO COMMISSION, KICKBACK, REMUNERATION, ETC. from any of these venders.
Do not complain to me if they turn out to be superflakes (or worse) who lose your order twice (or try to rip you off).
Personally, I am very wary of buying products via the Internet and I very rarely do so. Good Luck!
