Cengage: If you already have a Cengage account: Go to . In the middle of the page you will see a box labeled “Sign In to register a product or access resources”, please enter in the e-mail address that you used when you set up an account and your password. Once you sign in, you will be prompted to enter either an Access Code or Course Key. The Access Code is the code that comes with the new (not used) textbook that you purchased located in the front inside cover of your textbook. If you purchased an Access Code directly from Cengage, you should have it in an e-mail or receipt. The textbook purchase options are shown below in the next section of the syllabus. Access Codes are only good for 1 quarter, so the Access Code you purchased for Acct 1A will not work for Acct 1B. The Course Key (located above on page 1 of this syllabus) is used to access my course with the specific homework, comprehensive problem, and quizzes. If you entered the Course Key, rather than the Access Code, you will be prompted to enter the Access Code further along in the process. Cengage allows you a 21-day grace period to purchase the access code which means you can complete assignments right away without purchasing the Access Code. However, you should absolutely purchase the textbook as soon as possible because it is much more functional than the online materials and it could stock out at the bookstores.
