New - Pearson eText optimized for mobile

Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, personalized reading experience available within Mastering.

Students can use their computer or the mobile app to easily highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place — even when offline.

Seamlessly integrated videos and rich media* give students access to the help they need, when they need it.

You can also share your own notes with students so they see the connection between their reading and what they learn in class.

*Available with select titles.

Additional Features

Wrong-answer feedback personalized for you

Using data gathered from all of the students using the program, Mastering offers wrong-answer feedback that is specific to you. Rather than simply providing feedback of the “right/wrong/try again” variety, Mastering guides you towards the correct final answer without giving the answer away.

Hints offer clear guidance

Mastering provides hints of two types that help you work through, and ultimately, solve problems. Declarative hints provide advice on how to approach the problem, guiding you to the final answer. Socratic hints break a problem down into smaller sub-problems, which makes it easier for you to complete the original problem.

A comprehensive self-study area

The study area in Mastering enables you to watch videos, work additional practice problems, review key concepts, access study tools, and more. The work done here is not reported to the instructor's grade book, making it the ideal area to practice at your own pace and without penalty.
