1.0 out of 5 stars.  Run away from nettextstore, April 07, 2015
By PhilLeeHunsberger
nettextstore is very misleading. There "acceptable" and small amount of penciling in equates to the entire book being field out. The book itself is not bad... that company is though.

1.0 out of 5 stars.  Bad review, November 16, 2014
By Kristin
The description of the book was not of what it actually was. When I recieved the book, 80% of it was written in. The cover of book is decently worn. I have to still go through and continue to erase chapters because its completely all written in. Very unsatisfied.
