    I need the book, but not the Seller, July 18, 2013

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: ACSM’s Health-Related Physical Fitness Assessment Manual (Paperback)

    This book would have been so helpful in my class, except for the fact that I only have 2 weeks left of class (including finals week). I am SO disappointed in the seller. I will probably never buy from them again. Other than that. The book has everything I need, except I didn’t get to put too much of it to use.
