i had a little hesitation because the book comes with codes i need to do school work online and if they were already used i wouldn't be able to use them. I would've wasted money. But just as they said book was NEW and the codes worked!! I also saved $40 dollars buying it from here! I would recommend to anyone!!!!!!!
