Some Tuesday afternoons also possible by appointment. LAST UPDATED 12/20/18 REQUIRED TEXTS AND SUPPLIES: 1. ACCOUNTING 27th Ed., Carl S. Warren; James M. Reeve; Jonathan Duchac; South-Western/Cengage Learning Publishers TEXT PURCHASE OPTIONS: Option A: Buy one-third of the book from De Anza (or local) Bookstore in loose-leaf format. This option includes a quarter-long ACCESS CODE for the required online internet access to CengageNOW. Homework and some quizzes will be completed online at CengageNOW. When you take Accounting 1B and Accounting 1C you will buy additional loose-leaf text pages and additional quarter-long ACCESS CODES. This is probably the most straightforward and economical option. You should save your proof of purchase in case you are unable to complete the course. You may be able to get a replacement code from De Anza in the future if you drop or fail the course and you end up retaking it. Option B: Buy directly from CengageNOW. You can buy ACCESS CODES with varying time limits and also full copies of the text. The code alone (while active) allows you to access the text in electronic format (e-book) and also to do the online homework and quizzes. Be sure to save your proof of purchase. If you follow this Option, be sure to use the special Cengage/De Anza microsite to purchase access. This may save you significant money compared to other Cengage online purchase pages. Option C: Buy the entire textbook from another source. In this case, you will still need to buy the ACCESS CODE for online access. This is probably the most expensive option.
