By flipping through it I actually realized that I hadn't signed up for a music appreciation class so much as I had signed up for a class that wanted me to analyze melodies and things like that. It was my mistake that doing this made the book nonreturnable to amazon (as the book comes sealed in plastic to ensure the code inside isn't used) though I was still able to sell it through my seller account and be alright. If nothing else, skipping around this book and reading a little here and there made me realize the the subject matter just isn't for me and to avoid music-related courses in the future. I like listening to music as much as anyone, but I'd definitely rather not put a lot of though into the actual nature of music/sound/etc.
In any case, from what I saw, this is a suitable text for anyone taking classes in this subject matter, although be wary about the codes in unused books; if you know you need the code, it's best to buy new from amazon, though you can easily purchase a new code off the publisher's website to access all the online stuff that ties into the textbook.
