Daniel Keating's Sales: A Systems Approach provides an interactive approach for UCC Article 2 Sales of Goods courses that includes clear textual explanations, interesting class-discussion problems, and formative assessment questions that allow students to test their mastery of key concepts throughout the course.
Emphasizing the institutions and the mechanisms that participants use in the marketplace to conduct transactions, Daniel Keating’s “Systems Approach” provides a functional perspective of Articles 2 and 2A of the Uniform Commercial Code in practice. Comprehensive, problem-based coverage encompasses the domestic sale of goods, real estate sales, leases, and international sales. Thoughtful problems for students incorporate insights from this distinguished author’s interviews with leading figures in commerce as well as from actual sales forms and documents. News stories further illustrate, in real-world examples, how the system works in practice. Organized by Assignments, this engaging casebook lends flexibility in teaching and course design.
New to the Eighth Edition:
More than 200 multiple-choice poll questions (added to the Teacher's Manual) that are tied to selected casebook problems for instructors to use during class and/or to make available to students as formative assessment questions outside of class in addition to the more than 100 formative assessment questions already included within the casebook itself
Textual material that analyzes the 2022 Amendments to Article 2 and their effect on hybrid transactions, the statute of frauds, and the parol evidence rule
