5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Use
This was just like it was described. I have not made it all the way through because it is a self paced class. No ripped pages or excessive writing. It was not the book for my class but I am able to follow along and I saved a lot of money.

3.0 out of 5 stars REQUIRED TEXTBOOK BUT DISORGANIZED & CONFUSING LAYOUT
This textbook is required for the HIS 103 & 104 classes at Ashford University, so a review is probably not going to matter. I found the layout of the book not only disorganized, but confusing as well, because you really have to search the chapters for the information to answer the assignments and sometimes the answers contradicted each other.

3.0 out of 5 stars REQUIRED TEXTBOOK BUT DISORGANIZED & CONFUSING LAYOUT, February 19, 2012

This review is from: Traditions & Encounters: A Brief Global History (Paperback)
This textbook is required for the HIS 103 & 104 classes at Ashford University, so a review is probably not going to matter. I found the layout of the book not only disorganized, but confusing as well, because you really have to search the chapters for the information to answer the assignments and sometimes the answers contradicted each other. I also felt that the information did not go into as much depth as I would have liked it to and just skimmed the details. As a student, you don't have a choice in your textbooks, but I personally wouldn't recommend this book as a useful learning tool, although it did help that the first half of the book was used for HIS 103 and the second half was used for HIS 104, keeping me from shelling out additional money for a second book.

I ordered this book and they told me it was the wrong book that I needed the Ashford copy but when I got the Ashford copy it was the same as this copy.

A very involved and interesting textbook. Very useful to both students and teachers alike. A must-buy for any high school or college class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Traditions & Encounters, July 4, 2009
This review is from: Traditions & Encounters: A Brief Global History (Paperback)
An excellent book. It covers so many time periods. This is a book I will definitely keep even after class is over. It is so interesting to read how things and ways of life used to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, October 3, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Traditions & Encounters: A Brief Global History (Paperback)
I needed this book for a course I am taking. My voucher did not come in on time and my book arrived right on time. The price was great and the condition of the book was better than I expected. This was my first time buying a used book online and my first experience was an excellent one. Very satisfied.
