"This textbook made changes to the math for calculating pre and post judgement interest. I wanted to give you feedback and say that I got 100% on those calculations on my debtor creditor mid term and I found the breakdowns very helpful in understanding how to do the math (this is coming from someone who has math phobia!!)."
— Safa, Law Clerk Student at Seneca College
