I strongly recommend that you purchase the “hardcopy version”. DO NOT purchase the awkward “binder form” of the text because pages will be destroyed due to your heavy usage over 2 semesters, and then your well- remembered hardcopy will be missing on your professional bookshelf for quick use in your more advanced studies and careers. You are required to do your homework on-line using WileyPLUS which is a contemporary-technology robotic-computer doing&grading system.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
