What can i say? I'm a poor college student and this is all I need, nothing more. Why buy at the college bookstore new at over twice the price only to have them buy it back at 1/4 the price (IF they will buy it back)? Book arrived a good 2 1/2 weeks from me placing the order, but hey I saved a lot of money in the process and some patience. Book was bought used but in unmarked condition, and arrived in a thick envelope that kept it all together (the book is just a stack of unbound sheets which I have to put in a 3-ring binder). I highly recommend this seller - who will even buy it back from me when I am pau with it!
The book arrived as described. Looks like it was a library book. We can see a library sticker on the cover, but is crossed out by a marker. There is a little marks inside the book, but it is minimal. I would say it is pretty clean. Compared to the full price of a brand new book, I am really happy with this purchase.
This Beginning Algebra book by Lial is, without a doubt, the best elementary Algebra book I have had the pleasure to use. As a tutor of middle school through college level, I have used several Algebra texts from the bigger textbook companies to several homeschool favorites. This text builds logically and has clear and accurate explanations. Concepts that should be learned by heart and rote are highlighted. There is also a plethora of practical application problems which, afterall, is what math is all about - one needs to be able to apply and use the concepts in everyday and career situations. In short, it is easily understood by the self-taught, as well as a delight to use in a teaching situation. There is ample drill and practice to solidify concepts and routines. I'm sticking with this one.
