Welcome to CGS 1570 class. First, each student will first create his/her Pearson account and then sign in to the appropriate CGS 1570 MyITLab course. You will need your student access code that came with the purchase of your textbook for this course. You can buy the textbook and the access kit (access code) at the Pensacola State College bookstores or at Textbook Brokers (phone number: 850-477-3612) in Pensacola. You can also buy the access code online with your credit card or PayPal during the registration process. It costs $99 to purchase the access code and the eText version of the textbook or $89 to just buy the access code. If you do not have an access code you can still create a temporary account that will let you use MyITLab as of the first day of class. This is discussed in the following paragraphs.
REGISTRATION PROCESS: you can read the document Get Started with Pearsonís MyITLab for Office 2013 or watch the YouTube video on MyITLab for Office 2013 Registration. It is very important that during the first part of the registration process you select Microsoft Office 2013. Then make sure when asked to enter your last name to type your last name in the box reserved for your Last Name and your legal first name (not nickname or other name) in the First Name box.
Once you have completed the registration process your instructor will give you a course number that you will use to register for the particular CGS1570 course you are taking. Each CGS1570 class that meets at a different time will have a different course ID. So make sure you have the correct course ID that starts with the instructorís name followed by five digits.
TEMPORARY ACCOUNT: You can create an account and then sign in to MyITLab on the very first day of class if you do not have an access code. However, Pearson Publishing Company allows you to have this temporary Pearson account without access code or payment for only 14 days. This way you can start working on assignments immediately. You can select the 14 day option when you get to the Select an Option Web page during the registration process. At the bottom of that page you will click on the link entitled Get temporary access without payment for 14 days. When you purchase your access code and you sign in, instructions in the sign in window will tell you how to create your permanent account.
