Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book is not encyclopedic. It is a primer on how to set up a data team at your school. That said, I have to say the service on this order stank. I needed it for class by a specific date. The site said that it usually ships by the next day. With expedited shipping (not overnight), the book would have arrived with time to spare. I received the book after the first day class met. It was held up because a third book, that was part of this order, that also showed it would ship by the next day, was out of stock. They held up shipping 2 business days. Not only did I not get my books as advertised, B&N only apologized explaining that the notes on the website are just an estimate. No refund of the expedited shipping. I cancelled the third book from the order and ordered it from Amazon. On Amazon, they display the quantity in stock. Expedited shipping ships the book to arrive as advertised or earlier. Guess where I'm now buying my textbooks.
