  1. S. Smith Says:
    The textbook itself is useful/helpful in the info it presented. However, the software that the teacher uses, that comes with the textbook, is full of errors, i.e. poor grammar and use of language. It is hard to understand the exam questions. Many of them had mistakes that made no sense. For example, a problem presented a situation involving a grandparents’ gift to a child, then the question asks about the uncle’s tax treatment of the gift when there was no mention of an uncle giving a gift in the first place. The “correct” answer to this problem implies that their “uncle” was suppose to be “grandparents”. The people who wrote the accompanying software need to learn how to write a proper sentence in English. This was a nightmare!! But I am not complaining as much as before because regardless of this wacky package, so far I have a grade of A in the course.
