Textbook Information / Link to ZTC Textbook
Textbook: Elementary and Intermediate Algebra By Sullivan 3rd edition.
You will need an access code for Pearson MyMathLab. Please do not purchase anything before the semester starts. Electronic version of the textbook is available online once you login to our MyMathLab course, so you do not need to purchase a hard copy of the textbook. Without the Access Code you will not be able to complete any of the necessary work and will be dropped from the course. As a courtesy, the publisher allows students free temporary access for two weeks, so my recommendation is not to purchase an access code until the 3rd week of the semester.
