I thought that getting the spiral bound edition would be an awesome decision. I loved the idea of the tabs and the fact that it would lay open more nicely, but now I'm going to have to spend MORE money and get a different copy of this book. Since it says it's the second edition, it seemed logical that, aside from the binding, it would be identical to other second editions. This is not the case. It is not laid out similarly at all. After searching through it, in an attempt to keep up with my class discussions, I learned that it doesn't even contain the same content. It is utterly useless. Such a mistake.

I like the tabbed much better than textbook, you don't have to read all the filler crap, just gets right to business. Plenty of examples if you don't want to read at all and can copy layout and formatting well

Got this book first semester for a two semester course and it served its purpose. However, I'm disappointed that I need this book again for second semester and it is no longer available to rent.

Purchased for an English class. My husband likes the tabs. Price was more reasonable on here than the campus bookstore.
