My bundle comes with 4 items can I buy these separate?

Answer: You sure can just be careful that all match bundle, bundles are ISBN specific and the access code might not be to your course work if you are ordering by title, there are all types of problems you could have, but certainly if you have the ISBN's you can try, buying bundle packages separately can be costly.

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


Answer Important: Access codes are not interchangeable between classes. Access codes can only be used once. Verify that the access code prefix (on the outside of the access code card or envelope) is valid for the textbook edition used in your class.

Do I really need an access code?

Answer 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 from the online material.

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

Answer 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.

If I buy a used book and it doesn't come with an access code, can I purchase my access code separately?

Answer Of course! Because many professors do not require the use of access codes in their class, a slew of savvy students are out there selling their unused textbook access codes on the Internet. Caution access codes can not be reused, check if it appears re-wrapped.

What in the world is an access code?

Answer 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. Popular websites also use student access kits for exclusive access to some of their online content. Most codes are valid for one term. If a code is valid for a longer period of time, the duration is stated on the access code card.
