Bundle: Cengage Advantage Books: The Enduring Vision: A History of the American People, 8th+General MindLink for MindTap┬« History Printed Access Card

When registering for Mindtap access all students MUST use their Texas State email and the legal name used by the university. If you fail to do either of these steps, I will delete you from our course site until you have corrected your registration.

This book is the combined version offered at the same price as a single volume. Thus, if you are planning to take both HIST 1310 and HIST 1320, you will not need to purchase an additional book or website access as long as you complete both courses within 12 months of website activation. You still want to purchase the combined volume even if you are only planning to take one of the survey courses as you will need to have 12 month access.  (The publisher will not sell a 6 month access card. )

Activation of your Mindtap website, should be done via the link built within TRACS. If you attempt to register via the publisher's generic website, you will not get access to the correct version of Mindtap. If you purchase your textbook at a commercial site such as Amazon, you are running the risk of not getting the correct edition /access code.
