About the CSW131 Textbook

"Do I really need to buy the hard copy of the textbook for the CSW131 class?"

ANSWER: Yes! It is required, we need to use publisher files and code accessible legally to textbook owners, and all or parts of some quizzes and tests are open book (hard copy, not electronic).
