I ordered this book not too long before my classes were about to start and worried if it was going to get to me on time. My book came the same day my classes started. I was surprised at how fast the order came. Thank you for that! I was told that the book had some highlighting in it, but what used college textbook doesn't? I looked in the book and there really wasn't much highlighting in it. Thank you to the seller for saying exactly what condition the book was in even though it turned out to look better than I had thought it would. Great price, fast delivery, and awesome product.
