The Interactive Computing Series is the visual, interactive way to develop and apply software skills. This skills based approach coupled with its illustrated, 2 page-spread design is ideal for the introductory CIS course, the self-paced course or students in non-traditional education settings. The book has an eLearning session for students, which is a web-based, interactive study guide tied to each chapter of this text. Calculator sections following applicable examples show students how to solve problems using financial calculators. Professors will hopefully be able to spend less class time teaching students calculator keystrokes and more time teaching finance with this feature. The end-of-chapter questions have been doubled in this edition. Since many students in an introductory finance course are not finance majors, the authors use the chapter-opening vignettes to explain relevance to other areas of business (marketing, accounting, management). Spreadsheet sections following applicable examples show students how to solve problems using spreadsheets. Since spreadsheets are a main tool in business, it is important that students understand the basics of spreadsheet analysis.
