Used this as a textbook for school. Was very well written; however, the instructors slide show did not cover enough key points. Good book overall.

It takes a lot for me to take the time to write a review but feel it is my duty to warn other people about the racket that is being ran with the so called rental book opportunity from this company. We have rented text books from other dealers before and never experienced this situation. The book that we rented was separated in the middle from the binder when we received it. It wasn't so bad that it was unusable so we kept it for the class. When we sent it back we received a message stating that the book was damaged and that we would be charged another $284.00 for the book! While I was on the phone for hours my husband searched the internet and saw several complaints of the same thing happening to other people. We then called our credit card company and asked them to reverse the charge. They did this and started the investigation. We just received notice from the credit card company that they couldn't help us so we are stuck with paying for the book. Anyone considering renting this book from these people could just let us know and we will send it to you for half price, you're probably going to have to pay the full price if you rent!!
Very disappointed! We buy things practically monthly from Amazon and have never had such a disappointing result!
