Improving the Game
When it comes to teaching and learning physics, most pedagogical innovations were pioneered in Cutnell and Johnson’s Physics––the number one algebra-based physics text for over a decade. With each new edition of Physics, Cutnell and Johnson have strived to improve the heart of the game––problem solving. Now in their new Seventh Edition, you can expect the same spirit of innovation that has made this text so successful.
Here’s how the Seventh Edition continues to improve the game!
AMP Examples (Analyzing Multi-Concept Problems)
These unique new example problems show students how to combine different physics concepts algebraically to solve more difficult problems. AMP examples visually map-out why the different algebraic steps are needed and how to do the steps.
GO (Guided Online) Problems in WileyPLUS
These new multipart, online tutorial-style problems lead students through the key steps of solving the problems. Student responses to each problem step are recorded in the grade book, so the instructor can evaluate whether the student really has mastered the material.
WileyPLUS provides the technology needed to create an environment where students can reach their full potential and experience the exhilaration of academic success.
WileyPLUS gives students access to a complete online version of the text, study resources and problem-solving tutorials, and immediate feedback and context-sensitive help on assignments and quizzes.
WileyPLUS gives instructors homework management tools, lecture presentation resources, an online grade book, and more.

It's like that for the whole of it. It's deceptive and underhanded, offering the premise of help, when the reality is that it couldn't be less helpful. There's already so many financially predatory shenanigans revolving around higher education, and sadly, this publisher appears to be happy to be a part of the problem.
Students, please do not buy this book. Your money is better saved and spent on a tutor, or another textbook, or really just about anything else. To buy this is to throw your money away.
I just assumed that a brand new copy would come with it, but it would appear that they only give the bundled copies to schools so they can charge more, or you can buy it here and have to pay some ridiculous fee (which you can't look up ahead of time) when you need it.
Email your instructor and find out if you need the access or not, some schools put it in the listing for the class. You may have to buy from the overpriced bookstore after all.
Update: Just tried to log on to the online portion with Wiley Plus. It is $95 for one course. Buying this from amazon will likely cost you more money than it should. Try to contact the teacher before you need the book to be sure if you are using the online access, save yourself some time and frustration.
This book is specifically designed for students who major in social sciences, literature, and business etc. The authors deliberately avoided calculus throughout the text. You cannot see even a bit of calculus. They tried to explain 2D, 3D vectors, differentiation, integration etc. without employing calculus!!
Anyone who has studied science and/or engineering knows very well that it is almost impossible to learn (and comprehend) physics without calculus. The fathers of calculus, Riemann, Leibniz and Newton, invented it to attribute a mathematical sense to physics. This book completely ignores this historical fact! Therefore, it is very hard to use this book as an instructor as well as a student. It makes things more complicated and cumbersome unnecessarily. It is like trying to understand end enjoy English Literature, e.g. Shakespeare without English grammar, which is the skeleton of the language. Analogously, calculus is the skeleton of introductory college-level physics.
My humble suggestion to those who are (or thinking of) taking noncalculus-based physics is that you either take a calculus-based physics course and learn (and enjoy) it thoroughly, though it may require more sweat and toil, or not take physics at all. Because calculus is what makes physics more understandable (and fun!).
Also, the authors tend to launch new editions very frequently in order to make more money. I guess they think students should be able to pay, say $140, for a new edition, since they can pay $20.000 for tuition. What the heck, why not release a new edition? It is like the Rocky series, every now and then you see a new version. To be honest, the last few editions are not very different from each other. If you have an older edition, do not waste your money!
If you really want to learn physics, try Halliday & Resnick & Krane and/or Serway.
