Agree with the other reviewer who noted the problem with the kindle version - no page numbers, just "locations" that do not correspond to a page number and which change as you change font sizes. This makes it impossible to create a citation. Not sure if this is something determined by the publisher, or by Amazon, but if all Kindle textbooks are going this way I won't be renting any more kindle versions. Something else to keep in mind, since there were no 'page' numbers, the Index had no identifiers either, nor was there any functionality that allowed you to use the (useless) Index items as a link to go to where the content was. Very frustrating.
Initially no one likes nursing research. It can be difficult one getting into literature reviews and annotated bibliographies which I had never done before. I felt this text easily broke done the concepts and requirements. I did very well with this book. It also provided example research papers for example reviews of a qualitative and quantitative review which also assisted the process. I regretted selling it back and should have kept it for further schooling.
I received the book right away, and the process for returning the book doesn't look complicated at all. Hopefully, there will be other books available for rental that I will be needing, but not necessarily wanting to keep during the remainder of my nursing school. Since we don't have a bookstore at my college, it's hard to find buyers to resell to sometimes, so this way I don't have to put out so much money on books that I know I won't want to keep.
It was classified as in "good" condition but it is definitely in below average condition. Lots of water damage and crumpled corners and looks overall VERY used. It'll get the job done but it's just kind of annoying that the actual condition was below than what was promised.
I would never purchase this for leisure; required textbook. Overall, easy to navigate and the index is awesome in helping direct you! If you use this book for a class, USE THE ONLINE COMPANION!!! It helped a TON!!
Absolutely no writing or highlighting..... Will definitely order again.
Old fashioned book. Required for school. Easy to read and understand for the most part.
Hi there.

I ordered this book because it was cheaper than some other options. However, the cover does not look the same as the one pictured in the ad. This is false advertising. Nonetheless, the content so far seems the same. I just won't be able to sell it back to the bookstore I normally resell my books to because they do not take international editions.
Guess I should have gotten the clue from the company's name: InternationalBooks, but I still believe that they should have put the true pic of what the book looks like which is a lot different. Other places that sell international books do. That is why I did not buy the book from them, because the international version is not what I wanted. Let's be honest, the picture is typically what amazon buyers look at anyways when they purchase items...not the fine print!
