I was very impressed with the cost of this textbook. I saved more from Barnes and Noble than purchasing it at the University bookstore. I was also pleased with the speedy delivery with no additional cost. The text itself is quite comprehensive and thorough with many extras, but I did not purchase the companion disk for an additional cost so it's hard to say if that component is useful.
