great textbook  March 20, 2011

This textbook is well organized with up to date information and accompanied by useful photos and charts. I purchased this book for a class and I would highly recommend it. Pay the used price for it if it's available and look for the as new label. I saved a lot compared to my fellow students who bought it for three times this price for the same thing. I am very happy with this purchase. I recommend this vendor.
