Very pleased with this purchase  March 15, 2011

I went to purchase the above titled textbook at my college book store. When I looked at the price I thought the price for the book was ridiculous. A friend of mine suggested that I go on because their prices are significantly cheaper than college book stores. I was pleasantly surprised when I found the same book at a cheaper price. For now on instead of buying my books for college at the college book store I will buy them online through Thanks :)
