Our book is Excellence Business Communication, 10th Ed. by John V. Thill and Courtland Bovee, published by Prentice Hall, ©2012. It is NOT in the Leeward CC Bookstore.
You have two options for purchasing the book:
1. etextbook (which you "rent" for 180 days. You'll need a credit card to order it online.) Why would you choose an ebook?
it's the cheapest option: no shipping or printing costs makes electronic text less expensive for you (at $67.99, our ebook is 60% less expensive than the printed version)
you don't need to stand in line at the campus bookstore with instant online purchasing
you can view the electronic version on any computer linked to the internet
you can print none, all or some pages of the book, as you prefer
you can find information easily using computer-driven search tools, such as a clickable Table of Contents and a clickable index
To order the ebook for our class:
1. go to http://www.mypearsonstore.com/bookstore/product.asp?isbn=0132719045&xid=PSED
2. Look for "Digital Products" to choose the ONLINE BOOK etextbook option at the right side of your screen to add to your shopping cart. When you go to checkout, you'll need to create an account to complete your purchase.
2. printed textbook. Why would you choose the printed version? (1) If you are located outside the US (and not on a military base) or (2) if you prefer a traditional printed version of the book, you may order it from the Pearson website above (where it says "Alternative Products.") You can also order it from the Leeward CC bookstore, but remember that because this will be a special order, it may cost more than buying it directly from the publisher. Or you can search online for a textbook from a number of other sources, such as Amazon.com and Campusbooks.com. The ISBN for a printed copy is ISBN-13: 978-0-13-271904-9. (Note: avoid the "Student Value Edition," which is 3-hole punched for a binder. It is cheaper than a bound copy, but reselling it will be very difficult because isn't bound.)
