If you have purchased the Lifetime of Edition or multiterm access code last semester or previously, you do not need to buy a new access code.

Make sure that you use the same username and password as in Calculus I to register for Calculus II. the sytem will recognize you. If you get a message about a grace period, then the system does not recognize you as a returning user and you should check that you have the proper username and password.

Note: we do NOT use the early transcendentals version of Stewart.

Buying a hard copy of the book for this course is optional. You may prefer to use just an e-book, or an e-book and a used (old or new edition of the book). It is advisable to register for online homework (see below) to preview the e-book and attached media files before you make your decision on what to purchase.

When making your decision, you should take into consideration whether you will take Calculus III next year. If so you should purchase the EWA(online homework) access for multiple semesters, since we will use the same online homework system next semester.

Options for Purcahsing a Book/Access Code

    You may register after January 17 and you have roughly two weeks(after Jan. 17) to purchase and enter an access code before your account(and whatever homework you have completed to date) is erased.
  4. If you are not comfortable with just the e-book which comes with the access code in option 3, you can always purchase a secondhand copy of the book online.
