Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I recently purchased this text book for a college class and am very disappointed. If you are purchasing this for the hard copy and to gain access to online resources then don't get this from this site. I wasted over 150$ to get this shipped faster and when I got it I had no access code. I am aware of the warning the site gives you under the rent option that the access code is not guaranteed but I bought this new with no warning message. I have projects due and they all depend on having online access to McGrawHill resources I can only gain from this purchase. I'm sorry Barns & Noble but I will no longer be purchasing my text books from you. Know i have to spend another 90$
