How to access the textbook online

Getting started in a new semester is a hassle. What if the bookstore sells out of the textbook? What if you ordered it online and it hasn't arrived yet? You have to read chapters 1 and 2 for... next class! Panic! What to do?? Although the textbook for this class is physically on reserve in the Grossmont College library, there's only one copy. What if you go to read it and someone else has it already?

There are two solutions: the Grossmont College library's e-Reserves, and the textbook publisher's website. The library method might not work (depending upon the semester, the copyright conditions, the library's budget, etc.):

Grossmont College library
