I think it does a decent job on providing the basic information and is fairly easy to read. The test questions seriously need to be revamped. There really is no critical thinking, it is just regurgitation of what the book believes. To pass the tests, you NEED to either memorize the chapter word for word or buy all of the extra materials at [...] and take all of the extra practice tests and memorize them. I don't feel this was an accident and was done to induce more sales of add-on materials.

This book was a great choice. I have a Principles of Marketing course at my company and this cover all the course requirements. I previously read this book but like 10 editions back and I found very new interesting information but the foundation is the same. Amazon responded very quick to my buy, I tried to get ot cheaper from other buyer at Amazon but some days later they responded that they did not have it.

The 15th Edition of Principles of Marketing was a mandatory text for a Marketing class of mine. However, i could not afford to purchase that one and opted to settle for the 13th ed. in used condition. After receiving this and examining the quality and even comparing it to the 15th ed that some of my friends had, I disn't feel as though I settled for it, if anything I got an amazing deal. The content in the book is extremely similar to that of the 15th ed. I've notices very few differences, which may deal with the pictures or examples they used. Also, i bought this book in hard cover compared to my friends who bought it in soft cover. I would recommend this to anyone interested in Marketing, not only because the price is great, but also because the explanations and examples given in the text are easy to relate to, and therefore make learning about Marketing very simple.

For an older book, this book was in great quality. It was so much cheaper to get this edition of the book, which is very similar to the newest edition. The main differences between the older and newer versions are the case studies. The newer book has the accurate modern case studies, which can make it hard to do the case studies with the older book, but it is still possible to make do with the older one.

This 13th edition of Kotler's Principles of Marketing has been our reference throughout our whole course in Marketing Management, I believe this book is made for students at college levels because of how simple the explanations are and it's absolutely affordable for students. I'm also recommending it to all commerce students. It's a great purchase and a well written edition.

At 150$ I had expected the book will come with an E-Code for using E-book; but that's not the case. I have given only 3 Stars for this reason. In today's age spending 150$ just for a hardcopy is over-value.

This was going to cost me over $200 new for a marketing class of mine and this slightly older edition arrived in great condition and on time. It has a very little variance from the newest edition, even my professor uses this one.
