    I attend Bryant and Stratton college, one of my classes happens to be pre-algebra and the text book I had to buy for the course thru their bookstore (of course) was the 3rd edition Prealgebra Media Enhanced Edition Baratto/ Bergman. Published by McGraw-*Hill. There is a serious problem with the book. It has no fold out portion which is suppose to cantain the access code to Mathzone. I called the bookstore at my school where I bought the overpriced book, they claim I need to get a hold of the publisher. The number I was given is no longer in service since that was a dead end I decided to try this. There is no e-mail in the book to get a hold of the publisher directly, so I am hoping beyond hope you can help me or at least give me some information I can follow up on that will help. Thank you, Shannon Chavez
