I was sent the instructor version of the book. There was no information in the vedors book description that it was the instructor version. I complained to the vendor and had to send the book back to get a refund. I ordered another book and checked with the vendor who told me that they were 99% sure it was the student version. When it arrived it was again the instructor version. I did get a refund but I am now stuck without a student version that I can use in my class.

It is essential that the book vendor say specifically in the book description information that the book is a student version or an instructor version.
