DO NOT RENT TEXTBOOKS FROM BARNES AND NOBLES. AFTER SENDING MY BOOKS BACK I AM STILL BEING CHARGED FOR THEM. THEY WILL JIB AND JIVE YOU FOR YOUR MONEY. AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS. GO TO CHEGG OR ANYWHERE ELSE. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE WHEN I TRIED TO SORT THIS OUT. I AM STUCK PAYING FOR BOOKS I HAVENT SEEN IN MONTHS

Great additions to the guidelines for special populations. Tables and chapter reviews simplify information. Would not have expected anything less from the ACSM.
