“People who succeed have something in common that is much more important than high test scores. They have managed to acquire, develop, and apply their analytical, creative, and practical thinking skills. They know how to put them together to reach for their most important goals. In other words, they are successfully intelligent."
—Robert J. Sternberg

Although the description indicated that the product was in good condition, I didn't expect that I would be sold an instructor's copy. How could one sell something that the publisher never received payment for? I was very disappointed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
