If you purchased a printed textbook, you can begin the course immediately by simply starting to read at the beginning of the textbook.  The chapters and activities will guide you through the hands-on installation of any required course material and 3rd party software at the appropriate time.

We highly recommend that you read our Getting Started Guide for printed textbooks.  This guide contains a walk-through of the setup process, a description of how to find the course material after you have installed it, and a demonstration on how to verify the installed files.

For more information, including detailed installation instructions for 3rd party software, please see our dedicated page for printed textbooks.
