What Students are Saying
This was the first time I used CourseSmart, I found it doing research on the cost of my book. I added a course at the last minute and wasn't sure the price on the book. First I was going to purchase a used book, by the time I would have received the book, paid for the shipping and handling, I would have missed my first 2 assignments. By purchasing the eTextbook I got the book instantly and was able to complete my assignments. I enjoy using the CourseSmart eTextbook, because I don't have to carry the entire book around, I just print the chapters that are going to be covered during that semester; the cost of the eTextbook was in my budget, it was less expensive than going to the college bookstore and standing in the long lines. I recommend the Course Smart eTextbook.

I am a non-traditional student working full-time. I do not always have my books with me at work. However with CourseSmart my book was available online with easy viewing while I was working. On busy mornings this really can in handy, no more walking out of the door just to find that I forgot my book.
Because I use my laptop for note-taking, it was very convenient to have my entire textbook available with a click of the mouse. Not hauling around the extra textbook made it that much easier to take my laptop. I think that online textbooks are a good, cost-effective alternative to purchasing print textbooks. I look forward to seeing the new features that will be available in the future!
