Today, the SDSU Bookstore is one of the largest campus providers of eTextbooks in the nation. Students can purchase CourseSmart products through the SDSU Bookstore EZ Books online service and receive their eTextbooks instantaneously. CourseSmart eTextbooks can also be purchased at the SDSU Bookstore. Students can enjoy the convenience of anytime, anywhere access to CourseSmart eTextbooks whether online, offline, or on a mobile device. Just as with a print textbook, you can highlight and make notes. Your books will even be on one electronic bookshelf so you can easily find and access your study material.
