Had it for calculus I and well I didn't really use it much, ecampus gave it $50 cheaper than my school campus and it was delivered quite fast. It was in the condition it was said and I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. This is my second time in ordering textbooks at ecampus and I am happy with the results.
