I was satisfied with the product, the condition of it, and the speed of delivery. It was expensive, but significantly less than the college bookstore. What are you gonna do? The cost for college books is a very profittable venture for those who exploit the students' needs.

I got this book for class, English 111, and so far it has been a good help. There were some very good writing examples just in the first chapter that actually kind of kept me hooked to reading. Sometimes you find yourself reading some of these books for class and they make you want to fall asleep, this one actually keeps your attention focused and I have been learning quite a bit from it.

This is a good book, very helpful for new writers. Personally, I'm a pretty good writer, so it didn't do much for me, but it definitely helped sharpen my skills. I bought this book for English Composition 1, which I made an A in.

I recommend it!

Great price for a book that was just needed for 8 weeks. Now, it's on my shelf collecting dust. I can't resell it, it looses the value the day.
