Another strength is that there is access to the right information and there is also a department that will give people advice. > NET--> http://www.osbornebooks.co.uk/pdf/intermediate_business_1.pdf Date (18/10/04) > NET--> http://www.davidjreed.com/Corporate/business_types.htm Date (18/10/04) > BOOK--> GCSE Applied Business--> AUTHORS--> Michael Fardon, Chris Nuttall, John Prokopiw -->UNIT 1-->NUMBER--> 5&6 -->from pages 42-61 Date (18/10/04) > LEAFLET-->Shropshire County council case study -->page 121 Date (18/10/04) ...read more.
