Text Book Information for Integrative Biology 100

Biology: Concepts and Investigations, 3rd edition (2015) by Marielle Hoefnagels, McGraw-Hill Education, Publ.

1. Loose Leaf Text Book PLUS eBook Option:

If the loose leaf text book (containing selected chapters) is purchased in the bookstores on campus, it comes with two year's FREE access to an interactive online ebook version from McGraw-Hill, plus access to the publisher's online learning aids. The loose leaf text book will come with an access code to be used to register for the online ebook and learning aids.

If you buy a used text book that has no access code and want to access the e-book, you will need to make a separate purchase of McGraw-Hill's Connect Plus that comes with access to the eBook. You may do this through the local bookstores or online directly from McGraw-Hill (See the directions for ordering online below.)

2. eBook ONLY Option:

If you are comfortable NOT having a physical loose leaf (or regular style) text book, you can purchase access to the interactive online ebook and the online learning aids for a significant reduction in cost of the loose leaf book, plus the bundle noted above. This ebook is accessed via the internet - not downloaded to your computer.

Access to the eBook plus access to the publisher's online learning aids can be purchased at the campus bookstores or, for even less cost, from McGraw-Hill directly using the link below.
