You can pass the class without this book as long as your instructor uses blackboard. Most useless book, boring to read, unexciting, common sense information, ans reads like a novel instead of a text book. It was cheaper than the campus price, but still not worth $5.00.

This book was required for class, however it holds a lot of valuable information. The book I received had some previous highlighting, but was not distracting to my studies.

I ordered this book knowing I needed it for a class. I had several days before the class started but when my purchase was made amazon estimated an extraordinarily long period of time to receive the book. I emailed the seller and asked if he would be able to get it out as soon as possible. I was so very pleasantly surprised when I got the book in the mail the next day. The seller mailed it right away and the book was in the exact condition the seller indicated. I was very happy with the service given by this seller.
