Great Information.! March 31, 2011

I'm working on a Master's Degree and this textbook was required for one of my cl[censored]. The book itself is what you would expect from a textbook. It's nothing fancy, nice durable construction. We seem to be going from cover to cover and so far it is well written, easy to use and very up to date. I know ecampus did not ask for a reference, but they were considerably cheaper than other sources. And I got it quicker than I expected, 3-5 days.
