Most Sapling Learning courses are paired with an eTextbook that can help you learn about the subject matter in your course. There are a few ways to purchase access to an eTextbook, depending on whether you've purchased course access or started a grace period yet.

Note: As of Fall '17 some courses will be offering an e-book bundled with the course. If this is the case for your course, you will not have to purchase the e-book separately.

If you are entering your course for the first time

You will see an option to purchase access to the e-book on the payment page. If you do not purchase access to your e-book when you purchase access to your course, you will have a chance to purchase it later.

If you have already paid for your course or started a grace period

You will see the e-book in the right-hand sidebar of your course home page. If you are still within your grace period, the e-book will have a Free Trial banner over it.

If your grace period has ended

If you purchased access to a course but not the e-book, you will still get a grace period for accessing your e-book. At the end of that grace period, you can purchase access to the e-book from the right-hand sidebar of your course home page.
