    Book DOES NOT come with access code even though title and description clearly state you are renting a textbook, user guide and access code. FALSE ADVERTISING. If your course requires the access code, do not rent here. I contacted BN through chat and they just kept saying there is no guarantee you will receive the access code, something which is mentioned nowhere on this page. Very deceptive.

    Take the 11/2/13 posting very seriously. BN did not back up their own advertising Then they realized it would be too expensive to fix the error. The trend in scholastics has been to couple these expensive texts with an access code. The resale value of the book alone is significantly less thereafter.
