Be warned, this is NOT a paperback book! It is unbound loose leaf. Barnes and Noble apparently does not know the difference! I could have ordered a loose leaf copy from the publisher and saved $11. I only ordered from Barnes and Noble because they advertised that the book was a paperback. I am very unhappy. I will not be ordering textbooks from Barnes and Noble again.
