Note that a WebAssign code is required for this course while the printed textbook is optional
WebAssign is a web-based learning software. Students can purchase a WebAssign code through Blackboard to ensure their WebAssign code is linked to their Blackboard account. The WebAssign code includes an electronic version of the textbook, so buying a printed copy is optional. WebAssign can also be purchased with a new hard copy of the book (access codes cannot be re-used if a textbook’s previous owner already used them).
When purchasing an access code with a textbook make sure to link your Blackboard account to your WebAssign account in Blackboard before using your WebAssign access code for any other purpose.
