I rented this book expecting the coursemate and access code to be included like the description says, but they were not. Beware!

Web site says access card is included but in the fine print of the rental agreement it states there is no guarantee. MOST LIKELY IT WILL NOT BE THERE. Do not rent this OR ANY OTHER book from B&N if you need the CD or access card/code.
