I ordered 2 of the nursing books I needed from Classbook.com.
Excellent prices for used texts and I saved a few bucks. Well, when I receive them in the mail today in a very timely fashion, one of them is missing the CD and the other has this white electric tape all over the cover. Odd, I think, but at least the inside is in great condition. Well, I start to peel back the tape wondering if the stuff will come off without ripping the cover and it's covering up the words "Instructor's Copy." :angryfire
What the heck!? I just wanted a regular old textbook. I didn't want a stinking Instructor's Copy. The publishers give those out free! What a jip!
And I thought "Used" meant the item is intact. Why is the other book missing a CD? Shouldn't it just come with the used CD? It's not like I use the CD anyhow but it's the principle! Argh. And of course the sell-back value is less now missing the CD if ever I decide to get rid of it after using it.
Anyhow, let this be a warning to all of you folks that Classbook.com is VERY shady and sneaky. I would never give them my business again after this. I wrote to customer service and I doubt they'll do a darn thing except tell me to return them using my own money for postage which I cannot afford to do. I'm just happy these textbooks are ok in the inside and that I can use them. Now I'm left wondering if the Instructor's Copy is even legal to own as a student since the publishers hand them out free...and if the page numbers are the same as the student edition. (They should be, right?)
Aiiii yaiiii yaiiii. What a headache. Grrrr.
Moral of the story: Stick to Ebay, Half.com, and Amazon
.com for cheaper used textbooks. I've used those over and over again and never ever had a problem. Classbook.com sucks!
