Books/Instructional Materials

Did You Know?

1) Some courses require special CD-ROM materials and access codes that can only be purchased through the CTC Bookstore or MBS, our international book supplier. Utilizing the Course Materials Search Tool will determine if your course requires a package or bundle.

2) An exam monitoring system will be used in Blackboard for online testing beginning with classes that start on or after October 18. Students must have a webcam (preferred) or cell phone camera (requires an app) during testing. The service is available 24/7 on any device and does not require the use of a proctor or scheduling service. Student privacy will be protected through use of blurred faces and secure transmission. For more information, visit BioSight-ID Student Overview.

Use only if your class start date is between 1 Aug 2023 - 31 Jul 2024

Attention Online Students: Before purchasing your course materials, please be aware that most online courses require software CDs and access codes that are only provided within the package or “bundle” purchased through the CTC Bookstore or MBS Direct. The ISBN you see will represent the “bundle” and not just the textbook. These bundles contain not only the textbook but also all necessary CDs, access codes, custom materials, and all other required items. Without these additional items, you will not be able to participate in your course.
