It says in the title that there is an access card for mymathlab. But when I opened the book it was already revealed and had been used!

This is an amazing book. I have not had a problem with understanding the techniques or theorems. I do, however manage to read the notes in the back of the chapter and learn to do the practice questions. The course is getting easier; I just have to remember the proper formulas.

if you're in college algebra and your teacher says by the code, by the code because chances are, you won't need the book. Never used mine and it's been a month of class.

I've never been a fan of Algebra, but this book had me quite excited to get started.

The book is packed with information and it's not for those with a weak heart. There is very little spacing between the explanations, the examples, and the practice problems which can seem overwhelming at times.

The good thing about this book is there are a ton of Practice Problems which will help you perfect your understanding of the material. The bad thing... the answers in the back of the book are not the full answers. Most chapters only have the odd numbered answers which makes it hard to figure out if you're getting the other questions correct.

From what I understand, the Student's Solutions Manual for College Algebra that is sold as a separate book, only provides the solutions to the odd numbers as well.

The best part about this book is it's integration with MyMathLab. I believe your instructor can have your course setup per their own specific options, but in general, you'll see practice, homework, quizzes, and tests. The practice is awesome! There are about a ton of questions that you can work on and get the answers to, along with having MyMathLab "Help Me Solve This" or "View and Example" options. This is the best way to learn this stuff. Be prepared though, these exercises will take you a long time if you plan to work through them all. After you finish the problems you can take a quiz to earn "Mastery Points" which are a great way to determine how well you've learned the material. From there you will move on to the actual homework, quizzes, and tests.

Okay quality book (physical appearance). Did not come with a access code so I ended up spending 90 bucks for a new one.
