A Pearson eTextbook is an easy-to-use digital version of the book. You can add notes and highlights, plus learn on the go with the Pearson+ mobile app. Listen on the go with the audiobook feature, available for most titles.
When you purchase an eTextbook as part of a Pearson+ subscription, your titles will be available in your Library on the web or in the Pearson+ app. You can also find them from a link in My learning on pearson.com. Whether you sign into Pearson+ or on pearson.com, we’ll take you where you need to go.
You can switch your eTextbook title near the end of your current term and continue with your Single subscription. Once you switch, your Single subscription will continue for another 4 months with the new title.
If you switch your eTextbook title before the end of your current term and then decide to return to your original title, you will start a new 4-month term subscription.
You can use the Pearson+ app on up to 2 authorized devices at once with both Single and Multi subscription plans. For example, if you are using the Pearson+ app on a phone and tablet, that’s 2 devices.
You can also use Pearson+ from the web browser on your computer. Only 1 web browser can be accessing Pearson+ at a time.
Copy and paste functions are disabled in eTextbooks to protect the authors’ intellectual property. We’re investigating a solution that will allow students to copy small amounts of text, possibly along with citation information.
Not all eTextbooks have the audiobook feature yet. To see if yours does, go to an open page in your eTextbook and look for Audio (headphone icon) in the navigation menu. If the icon shows, audio is available. If you see the icon and still don’t have audio, ask our virtual assistant for help. We’re working to make audio available in all Pearson+ eTextbook titles.
