Important things to know about what you need to buy to pass this course:

  • Connect Plus is required for you to do your homework and quizzes, and therefore required to pass this course. Connect Plus contains an eBook automatically, so you do have a less expensive option to buy Connect Plus by itself ($379.50 for the hard cover text vs. $176.75 for the Connect Plus with eBook).
  • If you prefer to have a used copy of the FAP text you will need to buy the Connect Plus access card (which has the ebook). You cannot use a used Solid Footing book since the software code has already been used.

Welcome to ACCT 1101 for Spring semester. If you have never taken an online course before I highly suggest you attend one of the Tutoring Center’s Success Workshops. This will give you a running start on how to access Blackboard and be sure you’re ready to participate easily on day one!
