Achieve greater conceptual understanding

Enhanced eText

The Enhanced eText keeps students engaged in learning on their own time, while helping them achieve greater conceptual understanding of course material. The worked examples, animations, and interactive tutorials bring learning to life, and algorithmic practice allows students to apply the very concepts they are reading about. Combining resources that illuminate content with accessible self-assessment, MyLab with Enhanced eText provides students with a complete digital learning experience—all in one place.

And with the Pearson eText 2.0 mobile app (available for select titles) students can now access the Enhanced eText and all of its functionality from their computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Because students’ progress is synced across all of their devices, they can stop what they’re doing on one device and pick up again later on another one—without breaking their stride.

Make studying more effective and efficient

Personalized Learning

Not every student learns the same way and at the same rate. And now, thanks to advances in adaptive learning technology, it can feel like you're the only one in class. MyLab & Mastering with Personalized Learning assesses your performance and activity in real time and, using data and analytics, personalizes content to reinforce concepts that target your personal strengths and weaknesses.
