Chapter opening vignettes from Business Week Magazine. These recent, relevant short news stories show how chapter topics relate to the real world of business and get students immediately interested in the chapter material, which leads to active and attentive reading.
World of Business Week Revisited consists of discussion questions (at the end of each chapter) pertaining to the opening vignette that require students to draw from the chapter material for answers. As a teaching tool suggested answers to these discussion questions can be found in the instructor's manual. Multiple choice and true/false questions from the opening vignette will be placed in the test bank.
