How to get access to the homework and e-book through Blackboard

At this time it appears that the new Stony Brook Amazon Bookstore is a complete mess and I would not advise you to try to obtain your access code through it. I would suggest instead to obtain electronic access in the way outlined below and if you want a hard copy there are likely to be many second hand copies available locally, or you could rent the book from Amazon for much less than buying it.

The textbook for this course is: Douglas C. Giancoli, Physics for Scientist & Engineers, 4th edition. We will also be using the Mastering Physics Homework System associated with this book. There are various ways you can purchase the material, however there are some important points to bear in mind. Some of you may chose to switch to the larger enrolment class in the Spring semester, and that class uses a different textbook from this class and all the other calculus based intro physics classes offered at Stony Brook. In order to minimize the cost to should you decide to switch I have arranged a special 6 month access code that includes access to the textbook as e-book and Mastering Physics. Instructions on how to get access to these via Blackboard can be found here.
