I chose to rent the Kindle edition of this textbook, and I did not realize that it would not come with the access code required to access and complete the online coursework.

Edited: As it turned out, the access code in question wasn't an issue. The professor hadn't set up the online course correctly. I can't say that I loved the Intro to Business book for itself, but it was what I expected. Renting the Kindle version saved me a lot of money, and I didn't have to lug around a heavy textbook.

When I rate textbook providers, I mainly rate for shipping and hassle in returning (if it was a rental) and also the quality of its condition (it was used). I refuse to rate whether the book was helpful because no one spends this kind of money to learn about business unless they are buying it for a class. Thus, shipping was great and return was hassle free. The book was received in the condition promised.

I chose this rating because, I received the book faster then anticipated and it arrived in very good condition; no marks, no rips. Its almost as if it wasn't even read, until I got my hands on it. This is my first rental from Amazon and I appreciate the opportunity, not to mention, it is at the right price; at least for my budget. Also, the time frame that the book is offered for a rental is more than enough for me. I recommend renting from Amazon.

Good condition no problems at all except was expecting a return box and label when I received it. I hope they plan on sending the return label and box. Otherwise it was just what I needed without the inflated price. Thanks!
