This book is full of really good information and will be helpful not only in my college course, but will continue to be a good reference outside of the classroom when dealing with real-life situations. My only concern was that the book didn't come in the condition I thought it would; when it says the book is in "very good" condition, I would expect an almost like-new copy, not one that is very, very tattered on the front cover. Anyway, this book is useful and the wear-and-tear is minimal, especially in essence to how much use I will get out of it.

I ended up getting a B in the class overall, it's a book full of tons of useful and relevant information to today's first aid needs. There is more information then what I though would be in there originally. It's a very hands on book which I liked a lot
