I gave this a one star because 0 was not allowed. I looked up 7th edition. One expects that if you list something as 7th everywhere on the listing, the buyer would get a 7th edition. Not a note with the book telling you the book is the same (when by my professor's admissions) it is not! I contacted the seller and they ignored me. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS GUY!!!! HE IS A CHEAT!
