GBS205 Legal and Ethical
Environment of Business
GBS205 Online: Legal, Ethical and Regulatory Environment of
Business, v. 1.0.11

Explanation of the
different Textbookbook options:
I made the decision to move away from a traditional textbook ($350 for a new
hardcover) and work with an alternative custom text from Flat World costing
as little as $24. The alternative text is reasonably well-written and
looks sharp online. You have a choice of three format options:
1. Study Pass $24. Has everything you need,
but you can only access it through a browser such as Chrome, Safari or
Firefox. Active Internet connection required.
2. Digital All Access Pass
Includes the Study Pass and also pdf and epub versions of the book so you can
put it on your smart phone, tablet, ebook reader, etc. No Internet
connection required once you download the ebook. The epub and pdf ebook
formats also allow you to use apps that allow for highlighting and easy
searching of the book.
3. Black and White Print
Includes the Study Pass and the All access pass plus a printed copy of the
text. In my opinion, the printed version of the text is a little bit
ugly because it is black-and-white and printed on relatively thick
paper. It looks and feels like the metropolitan phonebook. Also,
the font is a bit smaller than I would like. However, if you like a
printed text, you’ll want to go with the print option. While you wait
for your book to be printed and arrive in the mail, you can use one of the
electronic formats they give you for free with this option. That way,
you won’t get behind in the course if you order the print option.
