There seems to be a lot of debate about this service, doesn't there? My gut feeling is that if you are careful, make sure everything is included that should be, and the ISBN#'s match your packing slip, you should be fine. I have ordered several books recently and MORE thann 50% of them were rated incorrectly - all of them made to sound better than they actually were. I bought a book that was supposedly "brand new", yet it had an opened CD and writing (in PEN no less) throughout the book. I lot of people out there really make me wonder. Anyway, in the interests of everyone, I am going to conduct an experiment. I have a few questionable books, including ones that are supposed to have supplemental materials but don't and others that DO have all of the supplements, etc. I will take accurate notes and pictures before sending them, and will let you all know what happens. I'll send them out right after Labor Day.
In the meantime, I would suggest this to those of you getting ready to trade:
Make sure the ISBN matches
Make sure all supplemental materials are included
Make sure there is not excessive highlighting or writing
TAKE NOTES or keep records, about what you are sending. (Include time, date, tracking number, etc.)
TAKE PICTURES BEFORE YOU PACK THEM.
I wish you all the best of luck! I'lll let you know what I find out.
