Do not rent this book...very misleading. It says it comes with the access code but does not. They say well it is not guaranteed with a rental. Then it shouldn't say it comes with it.

Do not rent this book. I have rented it twice and even though the title says with new access code it does not come with one. This is even though the cost to rent this with this particular ISBN number is more expensive then the one without the access code which has a different ISBN number.
