My favorite out of all the textbooks I've bought for my first semester in college! Probably due to this book actually pertaining to my major as well as the great condition that it came in. With my student account I got this book delivered in only two days! I can't wait to start my courses this fall now!

Didn't read most of it because it's effectively content-less. Don't let your teachers trick you into buying this. It's pretty, well laid-out, decently written, but in no way is it anything close to worth the money you'll pay for it.
