Before I purchased the Kindle version I checked with Amazon to see if I would receive access to the additional content that is on the CD-Rom. I was assured multiple times by different people that I would receive an email containing an access code to a website for the additional content. That is not true. You will have to purchase the physical CD-Rom from the publisher for over a hundred bucks. The text is great though. It makes learning new terminology quite easy.
Everything arrived in a timely manner and in good condition. Amazon gave me the best deal available but I really wish a spiral-bound textbook did not cost three figures. That’s a college textbook industry scam.
