The pre chapter test then suggests which areas you need to study the most. You will also get a loose leaf black and white printed version which you may like to bring relevant parts of to class. If you choose to get a used book, the figures and text are the same but you won't get the online content. It's your choice! Course Webpages: Blackboard: https://next.courses.utexas.edu You are expected to check this regularly for any announcements. See Blackboard for how to access the e-book.
