Amazing August 9, 2011

This is a new textbook and was received in perfect condition within the timeframe promised. I like ordering from ecampus because they almost always have exactly what I need and the prices are better than the college bookstore. Plus, I always receive my books quickly.

Great Econ Book September 8, 2010
by
I had to read this textbook for econ 202. Not a bad class, but one of the easiest textbooks I've ever read. I rented this book and was amazed at how the author made this book readable. I know believe myself to be knowledgeable in privatization. Hopefully this will come in handy once I become an investment banker.
