If you RENT, this book does NOT include an Connect Plus access card. The product description/title advertises that it would be included, but this is NOT true. You will just get the book. No Connect Plus. This review is for the Rental option.

It would have been nice to know if I rented this book that I would not get the access code to connect plus. Amazon should have a warning when you rent.

So incredibly mad that this made it seem as if i was going to also receive the access code with it. I COULD HAVE RENTED THE SAME BOOK FOR 40 LESS, but no they had to add (with connect access) I am so upset and now i have to spend another 100 dollars plus the useless 68 i spent..

Appreciate the fact that the textbook came with the Connect Plus access code, this feature will aid in my learning experience. Additionally, my instructor uses features associated with Connect Plus, to help students prepare for the class.
