Several of the Exclusive Access courses offer a discounted binder edition as a print upgrade, ranging in price between $20 and $50. Students are only eligible to purchase the discounted binder edition if they do not Opt Out of their Exclusive Access content. If a discounted binder edition is available, it will be listed on our textbook website as Exclusive Upgrade and be listed as optional.
If a discounted binder edition is not available, the printed textbook will be listed as a substitution.
Discounted binder editions for the most part are not available for Exclusive eBooks. Most Exclusive Access Codes will have a discounted binder edition available.
