4.0 out of 5 stars Condition wasn't the greatest. July 27 2011
By Megan
Format:Paperback
When I bought the item, the description said "like new!", but it was not like new. There is some wear and tear and a few wrinkles on the back cover of the book. Last time I bought from a seller that said the book was "like new", it was in beautiful condition. Just a little dissapointed. Overall great service, and I can live with a little wear in my book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre Dec 31 2011
By Mary Hanks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I hardly used this book in my class but for the extent of its use it served its purpose. The fescription of the book did not mention there being a name written in marker on the outside pages of the book do I was disappointed to see it on the book when it arrived. Other than that, it was a worthwhile purchase.
