Book Condition Guidelines
In addition to new textbooks, we also sell used textbooks of varying condition. While we do our best to accurately describe the books in our listings, the following guidelines should help you get a feel for what to expect when you purchase a textbook from us.
New - A new, unused book.
Fine/Like New/As New - Like New books are usually unused, but they may have some minor flaws, markings, or wear to the cover or text.
Very Good - Very Good books have generally been used for one or two years. They tend to have minor wear to the cover and/or text that comes from light use.
Good - Good books have been used for several years and show noticeable signs of wear. The cover may be scratched or showing some cardboard around the edges, but the text is usually still in good shape.
Fair/Acceptable - Acceptable books have been well used and usually have significant wear to the cover and text. The cover may be showing cardboard around the edges and spine, and the pages may be bent or worn. The text is still readable and usable.
