What you should know about bundle textbooks

Have you found yourself visiting a half dozen websites, etc., for a required textbook only to find that the ISBN does not exist? If you are unfamiliar with ISBN searching, you may think that the professor made an error or that the textbook is not available yet. You probably don't know you're looking for a Bundle textbook. 


Many textbook publishers are giving professors the option to modify a textbook by adding chapters, experiments, and labs. These textbooks are given a unique ISBN and a unique custom version title.

Example College Physics Book only ISBN 9781285737027.

Bundle Version for College Physics would be 9781305237926 packaged with book and printed access code.

Instructors have given the bundle version a new ISBN and instructors want their students to have the exact components in that package which the new ISBN will give.

Here at Coleman all of our bundle packages are ISBN specific as instructors and Publishers have provided. 

Can I give my access code to a friend to use?

  • Access codes are not interchangeable between students.
  • Access codes can only be used by one user. 

Do I really need an access code?

The use of your textbook's access code is usually up to your professor. In some cases, a professor may only recommend that you use the textbook code found in your student access kit to obtain additional reference and/or study material on your course. In other cases, a professor may require you to use your textbook access code because a portion of your grade will come be coming from the online material.

How long will I be able to view the online content provided by my access code?

While textbook access code subscriptions may vary, a student access code should grant you access to online content for the duration of your course, generally lasting between 6-12 months.

What in the world is an access code?

Access codes (also referred to as textbook access codes, student access codes or a student access kit) is a series of letters and numbers that allows you access to your courses online content and/or additional study material. Access codes (which can only be used once) have been included with new textbooks as a way for publisher's to "add value" for those who purchase their textbooks new rather than used.
