**NOTE: **This edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf version. Loose-leaf versions also offer a great value; this format costs significantly less than a new textbook. Before purchasing, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. For loose-leaf editions that include MyLab™ or Mastering™, several versions may exist for each title—including customized versions for individual schools—and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a Course ID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use MyLab or Mastering platforms.
