More and more professors are asking people to log on using the publisher's proprietary homework system, in this case McGraw Connect. For this amount of money it certainly seemed like this book would include some free time using that system. Usually they come with a code that you tear out, which is the only reason you'd buy a new book instead of an old one. This did not include a code. The code costs an additional $120 for a year of access. That is beyond crazy. This is why people pirate textbooks or at the very least don't buy new ones. I just thought people should know, I returned this book as soon as I got it. Statics and Dynamics haven't changed a bit in probably 30 years, and bad on my professor for being complicit in these schemes to require new books and editions. Education is expensive enough as it is.
If your class requires the textbook, you don't have much choice. Hold your nose any buy it. OTOH, if you're looking for a personal enrichment book on the subjects, continue looking unless you really dig tons of colored diagrams making it more like a high school physics textbook.
All that said however, it is a good intro statics & dynamics textbook once you get past the authors' idiosyncrasies.
