I enjoyed this book through the course I took. It's structured well, but is sometimes vague. It just covers so much content and often things aren't explained fully so you have to read between the lines. It's best if you already have a pretty good grasp of the topic being discussed but if you use it along with the other material (power points and chapter reviews) that your professor should have, you'll be fine. You probably don't have much of a choice anyway though if your professor uses the book. Good luck.
This is one of the worst books ever written! I find it hard to believe they keep asking the same people to author World history! It is clearly not written with the student in mind! If you are taking a class with this book- DO NOT TAKE THE CLASS! If your professor/teacher participates in My History Lab, it might be helpful.
So I purchased this book for under seven dollars (including the shipping)and I was expecting a torn and freyed book seeing that it was being sold for such a low price. Though to my surprise the book had little tearing (as far as the cover goes) and the pages where in great condition! If this company had sold the other books I needed, I would've gladly purchased them. For instance, I ended up paying seventy-nine dollars for a book that barely had a cover and that I didn't need for as long as I do the history book I purchased. For future books I'll need, I'll be sure to check these guys out first before going to the book store.
