Customer Reviews

Used textbook purchase  March 28, 2011

I found this textbook easily on the ecampus site. I was able to purchase this used book for less than half the price that I would have paid thru the Amazon bookstore. The book arrived in a timely manner, in time for my course. The transaction went very easy. The book was in good condition as described, some passages had been highlighted but did not deter from use. I will definitely check ecampus for future textbooks which will be required for my college course.
