I'm taking a genetics class for biology and no biology majors at a local community college. I am retaking this class because it's a prerequisite to a program I am applying for and it needs to be taken within 5 years of applying.
I had no intention of buying a book, because I have my old one and a new one costs $180 with access to the Pearson website. My teacher decided that 26% of our grade are done and turned in thru quizzes and homework thru the Pearson website. Wtf. It costs $60 for to gain access to the website.
So in effect it'll cost me an additional $60 just to turn in my homework.
I haven't checked out the full website but if I'm paying over $50 a unit plus extra miscellaneous fees for this class, I think it's BS that I have to pay $60 more just to turn in homework and do quizzes. Why wouldn't pearson encourage this.
