zyBooks are primarily for class use, but we are happy to let some students, professionals, and others subscribe to learn independently.
- Previous student-subscribers should sign in, then click on the "zyBooks catalog" link at the page top, where they can directly subscribe to most zyBooks at the discounted student rate.
- Others should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for further instructions. Students who wish to receive the student rate, must provide a professor's name/email as a reference.
Note that activity in an independent zyBook cannot be viewed by a professor, and that we cannot transfer activity from an independent zyBook to a class zyBook.
Independent subscribers get access to the base content of a zyBook, which may not include Lab Activities, end-of-section exercise solutions, and some other items, but generally includes access to most Participation Activities and Challenge Activities.
Independent subscriptions are provided as a courtesy for personal use only, and not for classroom or business purposes. zyBooks staff reserves the right to deny independent subscription requests.
Instructors suggesting zyBooks as "optional" or "recommended" or in non-traditional ways beyond normal class adoptions should still follow the normal adoption process to create a class zyBook, and should not point students to independent subscriptions; contact email@example.com for info.
