We get set homework every week. For me the benefit of MyMathLab is actually working through the examples that we've been taught in class. That's how I learn maths.
Llinos Owen, student, Engineering Maths, University of Liverpool, UK (MyMathLab)
I just wanted to let you know how helpful the Mastering Biology is! It makes me study better, almost forces me to it! And it is a perfect combination between pictures, videos and text. It's genius!
Renee Bakkemo, student, University of Essex (MasteringBiology)
It is like having a teacher by your side, you learn it a lot quicker than usual homework!
