We have selected to use McGraw-Hill's on-line "Connect" system for this textbook. You will purchase an access code either from the HCC bookstore or from McGraw-Hill directly (it's cheaper with no bookstore mark-up). We will use the on-line Connect system for SmartBook reading assignments and preparing for class. Yes, you need to purchase the Connect Access code as we will have reading assignments directly from the Connect system.
If you DO want a hardcopy version of the book you can choose to order a loose-leaf copy directly from within your Connect account for ONLY $15-20. Publisher will send it to you directly.
