    Book fine, service horrible

    Renting from B&N is a nightmare.
    Six telephone calls, three-plus hours on hold, late charges, an e-mail confirming that the book had been received and late charges reversed. A new e-mail saying they don't have the book, more late charges and telephone calls. "Customer service" (I use the term loosely) saying they can't confirm that a confirmation of receipt was sent. Plus they refused my offer to forward the confirmation of receipt e-mail back to them. I give up. I'm paying for the book because I can't keep doing this. It just isn't worth my time and energy any more. Will never, never, never rent from B&N again.

    Great book, but took longer to get here than expected.

    Online it had told me that it was supposed to here in 3 days but it got here in like 7. So that was really disappointing. However, once I did receive it, it was in great conditions, exactly how i ordered it, and i was able to start reading! Plus, I got a free wine voucher with it!

    While the information in this book may be good, if you have any

    While the information in this book may be good, if you have any visual impairments, it's almost impossible to read. It's ironic that a book about special education needs and accommodations is written in such a small, light, thin font. And the Figures? Forget it. They are even smaller and lighter--more of a gray font than a black font. This book is required reading for a course I am taking, so I have to figure out a way to read it. Unfortunately, it is not published for Nooks, which I have, only Kindles, which I do not have. If you are challenged visually, you will have a very hard time reading this book. But if you're required to read it, get yourself a really good magnifying glass and give yourself extra time to get through it. It's a shame, they didn't keep visually impaired people in mind when creating this book about educating people with special needs.

    This is a very expensive, cheaply made book. The paper is cheap, the cover is cheap. Most of the information can be found on the Internet. Additionally, you're supposed to be able to use an educational lab that is presented throughout the book to do on line exercises to complement the theory. However, you have to BUY that access code as a student from Pearson. There is something seriously wrong here. I really regret buying this book.
