Textbook information is as follows: Fundamentals of Investing, custom 12th edition with MyFinanceLab, Pearson, publisher, authors: Scott Smart, Lawrence Gitman, and Michael Joehnk--ISBN 9781323054727 should contain the textbook and the My FinanceLab access code. PCC has negotiated a substantiallly reduced price for the new soft cover textbook now found in the bookstores or online. There is an older hardcover PCC custom edition (that will not have a valid access code for My Finance Lab) and it may be more than this new version with the MFL access code. The textbook can be purchased at the bookstore on any of the main PCC campus locations (Sylvania, Rock Creek, Cascade, Southeast Center). You can order the textbook through PCC online bookstore.

This textbook is a soft cover custom edition for PCC with the price negotiated to be as low as we could get. Be careful about purchasing used copies because a used textbook will not have the Connect access code. Often, the cost of the used book and new access code is more than the new textbook that comes with the Connect access code.
