    DONT BUY BOOKS FROM THIS COMPANY

    I order a book and recieved a BINDER. Some of the pages are missing and the ones theat were there were falling out of the BINDER. When I tried to return this BINDER I was told I would be charger a 15% fee and it would have to be returned at my expence. The description was misleading and I would not advise anyone to order form this company.
