Just what I was hoping for! March 23, 2011
This was a wonderful experience. I ordered the book on Friday and received it the following Tuesday, after a holiday, this textbook matched up perfectly with the item description and photos. I needed this book for my major and will probably be referring to it for the rest of my career, I saved over 50% I'd recommend this to anyone…
