Be aware that there are at least two versions of this book labeled as an eighth edition.

The version described on this page ISBN-10: 0073386103 / ISBN-13: 978-0077460396, the version I ordered (used).

Then there is the version I received ISBN-10: 0073386103 / ISBN-13: 978-0073386102, it is unclear if it is supposed to have a CD and Formula Card. The version I received had it, but another reviewer of that version did not receive it.

Beware that if you receive the latter version the Amazon sell back price is about half that of the former. Be sure to check the ISBN to make sure you receive the book you ordered. I wish I had!

As for the book itself, it seemed fine for the class taken. The CD was not really very useful, but you must buy what is required for the class.

Book itself is thorough though the CD did not work whatsoever on my computer.(It may work on yours?) Formula card was handy, but I could have easily done without it. My advice would be to double check ISBN on your receipt to the book itself immediately when you receive it, otherwise you will not be able to trade it in. There are identical books with different ISBN's out there.

This book is serving me well on statistics right now. There are a few flaws in this book that the author needs to update on and that is the answer section because it is such a big deal going back through your notes, professor and so forth.

The book came really fast, which was great because i didn't fall behind in class. It came in perfect condition, no pages missing or anything. One down side was that it did not come with the Data DC or the Formula Sheet, I didn't mind that it didn't come with the CD but I was really disappointed that there was no formula sheet because I need it for tests in my class. If it wasn't for that this book would have gotten 5 stars instead of 4. Before purchasing make sure it contains formula sheet, if not I was able to find it on google for free. Other than that the book is great and the way it is divided and set up is easy to follow, each lesson is explained perfectly and straight to the point.

The book was so late it put my first three assignments in jeopardy and it did not have the formula sheet included at all.
