"Like New - A book that may have been handled several times or used slightly but that nevertheless has no defects of note and no signs of wear or aging. A "Like New" book is suitable to give as a gift."
It showed quite a bit of wear but what was most disatisfying was the CD was missing which contains important information and tests. This book is not as usefull as I hoped.
