“Textbook” Information for Mr. Bacheller’s Distance Learning Courses

I have negotiated a discount on the required materials for this course by linking the lecture and lab courses.  This means you must register for both my lecture and Lab courses. The lecture course utilize an interactive eText called SmartBook and the lab course uses a series of lab simulations called LearnSmart Labs. The content for both courses is accessed by purchasing a single access code.  (In the past students purchased separate access codes for each course).

Specific course information is listed below.

Purchasing the Access Code for Your Courses

Students can purchase the combined access code for both lecture and lab courses:

1) Directly from the publisher during the product registration process (instructions will be emailed to you in an “Instructor Welcome Message”).  This requires the use of a credit card but will save you approximately $100 over the campus bookstore pricing of the products when purchased as separate access codes.

2) From the Dale Mabry Campus Bookstore.  If you choose this option be sure the access code that you purchase is for your specific course section numbers and have the specific ISBN listed below.  If you get the wrong codes and open them you are not likely to get a refund.
