|Textbooks:||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 $69.99 our ebook is 60% cheaper 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:
Step 1: go to http://www.mypearsonstore.com/bookstore/product.asp?isbn=0132719045&xid=PSED (copy and paste this address onto your browser)
Step 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. If you are located outside the US (and not on a military base) or if you prefer a traditional printed version of the book, you may order it from the Pearson website above (where it says "Alternative Products") or 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: the "Student Value Edition" is 3-hole punched for a binder. It is cheaper than a bound copy, but it's almost impossible to resell.)
|Technical Requirements:||The Internet allows students to take a course at home using a personal computer. Familiarity with using a computer and basic Internet skills (browsing, sending e-mail, saving/sending files) is required. Students must have a computer with Internet access. Depending on the online course, students may be required to log in at a specific day and time or at anytime. Students taking an online course should always contact their instructor after registration or prior to the first day of class to get detailed information regarding the course.

Alternate Technology Access Plan: In registering for a Distance Education course (Cable or Web) the student is responsible for finding immediate alternate access to a computer with Internet connectivity or cable television should that student experience technical difficulties. Technical difficulties can include but are not limited to problems with a student's computer hardware/software; inoperability of a student's VCR or DVR; or lack of service by a student's Internet Service Provider (ISP) or Cable Provider. Technical issues do not constitute the extension of an assignment, project, quiz or exam deadline unless agreed upon by the instructor.
An Alternate Technology Access Plan will be made by the student prior to the start of the semester and should be implemented immediately upon encountering technical difficulties. The student is required to continue course work as a result of having an alternate plan of access while independently resolving any technical issues with hardware/software, VCR/DVD, ISP, or Cable Provider.
