The materials will be available through Aztec Bookstore. Any format for the textbook is fine (print, e-book, or loose-leaf). You will also need access to the Mastering Chemistry online homework system, which comes bundled with the book at the bookstore. Before you buy a used copy of the book, check pricing on the online homework access. The publisher charges almost as much for the online homework access alone as for the bundle. You may want to check out the bookstore's price matching offer.
