The book is basically free so not much to complain. A lot of writing and highlighting. A lot of exercises different from the new edition. But just look at the price

Shipping takes way too long. Book was said to be in "good condition" I'd say it has some condition. It's dirty and bent from corners. This book was obviously put to good use. But over all I guess it's okay for $5-$6 compared to regular price
