5.0 out of 5 stars Great Buy! January 16, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I needed this book for my intro to biology class. My professor was nice enough to let us use the 2nd edition which he claims is almost the same as the 3rd edition. "He said biology is biology." The newest edition costs over $200.00 at my college book store. I only paid $8.00 for the second edition. I'm extremely happy of the condition of the book and the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Received soon and in as described condition. January 25, 2014
By selvana
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I received this older edition used textbook for very low in cost and was happy about how quick in came in. It's in good condition. It looks like this use to be a rental book because it has rental stickers on it. For this reason was a little confused that it was mistakenly purchased as rental not a purchase to own. Therefore, had to go back to my purchase details email to verify that it was in deed a purchase to own transaction. Sure enough, it's mine for keeps. I'm a happy customer. Thank you!
