    Very Basic, OK as a very introductory outline Ok as an introductory retail book, if you are looking for very basic, high level information. Definitely lacking if you are looking to get into some of the more ‘current state of the art’ trends and details.

    Prompt shipping and quality as advertised for this used book. I wish I had figured out how much less expensive books are used on the internet!

    Book was cheaper than at the campus bookstore and arrived in a couple of days. Very pleased with the results. And the previous owner had highlighted all the pertinent information, so that saves ME time!
