We understand that some students strongly prefer print versions of books to electronic versions. The book/access code bundle available from the school bookstore includes an ebook because that makes the bundle significantly cheaper.
However, after you have purchased the book/code bundle, you are able to purchase a discounted loose-leaf version of the textbook (in full color) from within your Connect course. Currently, this is only available for purchase by credit card. Cost varies by title and usually runs from $25 (most titles) up to $60.
Once you have entered your Connect access code and registered for your Connect course, you will be able to access the loose-leaf purchase option from the homepage for your section--this should show you a list of the assignments.
**If you do not see the homepage when accessing Connect from Blackboard, try logging in to Connect from outside of Blackboard.
Different courses have slightly different layouts, but many times the link to purchase the loose-leaf will appear beneath the access to the ebook of the text (either on the far left or far right of the screen).
You can also find the link on the Library tab:
And from inside the ebook:
After clicking on the link, which might say "Order a looseleaf copy and save," or "Need a print copy of the textbook?" you will be redirected to where you can enter your payment and shipping information. The loose-leaf will then be shipped directly to you from the publisher.
