This year digital versions of some of the textbooks are available for you to purchase. Please check the Required Textbook list before making any purchases. This list will inform you of any restrictions for purchasing digital books, for example some courses require a print version and offer the digital as an option for use at home. Other courses require the digital version and have the print version listed as optional and still other courses allow you to choose your preference. Some texts do not have a digital version, in these cases the print version is required.
Digital versions of the texts are offered through four different vendors: MBS Direct Digital, Apple iBooks, Amazon Kindle, and Course Smart. The “Comments” column of the list will tell you which vendor provides the digital version for the text. Each of these vendors provide an app you can download through iTunes to access the books you purchase. Within each app, log on using the same email and password you used for other purchases you made on the site.
