I've placed my first order with BN a little while ago for this book. The site said that it would ship within 24 hours. I'm now going on day three without it being shipped. I did receive a notice this morning saying that it is estimated to ship out yesterday???? I have tried to call customer service to get some clarification and have now been waiting literally 41 mins for someone to just pick up. Horrible experience with BN and will never do business with them again!

DONT BUY THIS UNLESS YOU WANT THE WORKBOOK!!! They show you a picture of the paperback textbook and send you a workbook and then act like I was in the wrong. Not to mention I was charged TWICE and I have to wait until they receive the book back to get my $136.

I have now been sent the wrong edition of this book two straight times and as if that wasn't enough i've now called to complain and sat on hold over thirty minutes. Finally being credited back for the shipping on the second book, but still unsatisfied. Shipping is also not 24 hours. Its not even 72 hours. Took five days not including the weekend to recieve the wrong book two consecutive times. Don't waste your time buying from here. Spend the extra money and get it where you can immediately. Such a waste.

This Textbook is back-ordered! B&N still has not shipped and yet on my account I'm told expected ship date was 01/17/11. Something has happened to B&N. Have a good semester.

Highly disappointed With B&N and will never do business with them again,a great price was not worth the hassle of my money being held hostage and getting the wrong book. This book is advertised with the texbook picture and isbn number but synopsis is for workbook!!! AND YOU WILL GET SENT THE WORKBOOK, Workbook is half the price and has different isbn number , YOU WILL BE CHARGED TWICE FOR THIS ITEM BECAUSE OF THEIR CRAPPY EXCUSE THAT 1 of the processing charges is for authorization... normally you would be charged once with that charge previously authorized....Very Stressful and 0 accommodations.
