    Easy read for students

    Excellent read for Psych. Stats. It was the textbook required for Statistical Methods in Psychology. The subject matter seemed relevant.

    Book Condition NOT as Advertised

    I paid over $40 for this book and the book is in terrible condition. Pages are stuck together and there is mold between the pages. The cover is ripped. It took 4 weeks to receive the book even though i got an email 2 days after i ordered the book saying it had been shipped. I will NEVER order from here again; the condition of the book was descrived as "good".
