Product clearly stated it included an access card. It did not bring one. I need the access card to complete the assignments for the semester. Without the card the book is useless. Who can I speak to about this?
I'm about one third of the way through the book now. I'm a 'grown up' that's fallen in love with learning and deeply regrets not listening to my teachers when I was a kid.

Basic Chemistry is easy going and it does what it says on the cover. I'm not sure what author thought the target audience is but it suits me well and would also suit a 14 year old although I'm not sure they would have the motivation to attack so many pages by themselves. Sometimes there's some details missing - for example we're told that this or that compound is stable but we're not told what 'stable' in a means chemical context. I guess I'll want another book that goes deeper after this one.

All in all I'm happy with the book and would recommend it for people like me: interested in learning more and supporting their children in school.
I received the textbook within 3-5 business day after I placed the order...and the book is fantastic. Finding answers to some excercises can be a bit challenging, but for the most part it is an excellent book. I would definitely purchase from this seller again and I also highly endorse the textbook and the outstanding customer service.
The book arrived in great condition but there is no e-text card for MasteringChemistry Pearson. Huge disappointment!!!!!!
This books was purchased or rented for my wife who is taking various college courses. It's not a book you would buy for pleasure, rather a book required in a class.
The textbook gives a clear and concise understanding of chemistry and how it works and how it functions. It is absolutely an excellent textbook to learn everything about chemistry and that's why I give it 5 stars.
The textbook was fine and I used it for class but I mainly bought this bundle to use the access card. It was already used and I had to pay even more money to buy an extra access code. I could've bought a cheaper textbook if I would have known that this is how this rental was going to be.
This book was alright, it provided a lot of information, however when working on some of the problems the answers they provided in the back of the book were not correct, so if you have a professor that teaches by the book, let's hope they don't choose this one.
