In general, I would have to say that having a textbook that includes side notes on how to do the each of the problem step-by-step, and all the problems solutions helps when you are not so good at math (especially if you have an instructor who does not know how to teach students who do not have a Ph. D in mathematics). So, if you can afford the additional price, it is worth every penny.

Will use for online class

Book in pretty good condition. Wish I had ordered hardcover though.

AWESOME!

Just because it has all the answers doesn't mean you know the material. I appreciate having the even answers as well as the odds (which are only available in the student version) so I can check my work. It has also been a great help to me when I can't seem to figure out how to do a problem - by knowing what the answer is I can do the problem in reverse or figure out the middle so my answers match the one in the book. Highly recommended if you're struggling with the subject!

Excellent Service

Book was in superior condition, arrived on time and at the best price of any website. I always search alibris when looking for school books or easy reading novels.
