I used this for my Spanish 4 class which was rather pointless since I got stuck in the class since it was the only language I could take that fit into my schedule. It's a decent book if you're trying to learn the language, but I was already a native speaker so maybe I'm biased. Woops, cheating the school system.

The book was cheap, A LOT cheaper than what I would have had to pay my school district since I lost my copy.

Shipping was a little slow for my taste.
