My first time using Alibris was a disappointment. The seller wanted a lot of money for the textbook and then wanted to run my credit card again because he didn't calculate the shipping charges correctly. I tried with a different seller, Marie. Not only was my textbook better priced but it arrived in excellent condition and right on time for my class! What she advertised was what I paid, no surprises. I would order again with Marie. I like paying only once for a book. The textbook offers answers but not all with breakdown explanations. It is great for checking even-numbered questions.

This is a great book. The book is the same book that is being used in my college class. The only difference is the price. I only paid a fraction of the cost. Highly Recommended!

Not as good as the previous version
The previous version of this textbook is better than this version. The examples are not as defined as the previous version, I think that is important in a book. In buying this textbook, I recommend one transfers to another classroom that uses anohter book.
