Do not spend the money on the additional expense of ConnectPlus!
Save yourself the money; rent a Kindle edition and purchase a Connect Registration code for your online homework.
McGraw Hill falsely claims an eBook that is not viewable on devices with eReaders ie iPad, Kindle, etc., but through a web browser only, with no page-by-page reading option. And if you do want it accessible offline, your instructor has to "create" the text on McGraw Create, and you have to purchase it from that website. As it does not qualify as the eBook with your $300 purchase. As for the eBook browswer, It also does not support the eBook "standard" features of a highlighter and post it notes. Instead you are only able to arrow/tab pages left and right, skip pages, search terms, and print. When asked why this feature wasn't supported, The McGraw tech support staff said, "It's just not." And when I asked how I can prevent overpaying in the future for a feature that isn't available, they told me I had to call McGraw customer support every time I'm interested in a book to ask if all eBook features are fully supported. These unsupported items were never disclosed, and I could even search the help FAQs for questions answering this issue.
Do not waste your money on this product! Rent and buy Connect only. You can spend $90, instead of $300 .
