Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Entering the next two years of the International Baccalaureate programme, I was looking for cheap, used textbooks that will last me until graduation. This textbook was delivered quickly and was well looked after: the overall condition of the book gives me the confidence that it will last through the next two years, which was exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely repurchase from this seller.
