Customer Reviews

Very good textbook! It's worth buying.  April 4, 2011
by


I am in college and I needed this textbook for class. This textbook is sold out everywhere. I found it on ecampus and got it delivered quickly. Perfect timing, plus the textbook is a great read and very easy to understand, I found also a used copy in ecampus which was much cheaper for me, and the service was very good, I highly recommend ecampus as the best textbooks store.
