VitalSource Volume 2 eBook ready

If you want to access an eBook for Exploring Microsoft Office 2013: Volume 2 but don't like the Pearson eReader linked through MyITLab, another option is now available. CS101 students were sent an e-mail on September 22 with a free VitalSource redemption code and instructions for accessing the eBook through the VitalSource's website.

eBooks for both Volumes 1 and 2 will continue to be available through the Pearson eReader. Volume 1 will also still be in CourseSmart. Students who purchased the print book can continue using those if they like. The print, Pearson, VitalSource, and CourseSmart versions of the books all have the same content.

MyITLab content notes available

In certain cases, MyITLab questions may not work entirely as expected. A list of known issues, along with notes on how to successfully complete the questions, is available.
