Well at least it doesn't cost very much
The first thing my professor said about this book is that it isn't very good, but at least it doesn't cost very much! I agree with him. The book really isn't very good. Sometimes it's wrong and sometimes it just has really bad examples or doesn't explain ANYTHING. So I'm getting to know the TA for the class more than I would have if the book actually taught what it was supposed to. The publisher even supplied powerpoints for the teacher, and they are really bad and full of mistakes. If you need this book for a class, have fun! At least it doesn't cost very much!

not enough examples
Pretty straight forward, but it feels kind of bares bones. I feel like there aren't enough examples to really get a work out for the material. Then again, it IS "Intro" to Environmental.

The seller said the book was slightly used and it looked like it was opened three times! I couldn't have asked for a better deal!
