The book had a lot of high lighting on it and the corners of the book were not in a good condition. However, before purchasing the book I knew the conditions of it because the seller listed it. It was worth the money I paid for it $3.25. Thank you

This textbook was perfect for use in my ECU101 class at Ashford University. As a bonus it came with the Educational Lab which was required material as well. (Turns out that Ed. Lab was a CD that was in the back of the book.)
Seller shipped quite swiftly and I definitely recommend them based on my experience. thanks again Amazon!
