2.2. Textbooks (Read Before You Buy)

Ordering Textbooks

Buy your books before classes begin. It can take a few days to a week for them to be shipped to you, and you will need your books right away. To buy your books and materials, go to the TN eCampus Virtual Bookstore here: https://www.bkstr.com/tnecampusstore/homeOpens in new window. Once classes begin, double-check what you bought and compare it to what is listed in the syllabus. If any discrepancies are noticed, please report these to your instructor and also email TN eCampus at tnecampus@helpspot.com

A NOTE ABOUT DIGITAL MATERIALS: If your course requires an access card or access code, or is an eText—you really do need to buy it from the TN eCampus Virtual Bookstore! These materials are sequenced and aligned with your exact TN eCampus course section, and if you purchase them elsewhere they will not work! ALSO, once you purchase an access card or access code, wait to activate it until you have accessed your course and read the course directions on activation. Often times there will be a class code you need and you won't have that until the class opens. Once you activate the access code, it cannot be returned!

Order Process

To order your books from the TN eCampus Virtual Bookstore, please follow these steps:


Start with Select Department. Then select your Course number. Select the appropriate options from the drop-down menus from left to right.  

For Section choose All. Complete additional courses if needed and then choose Find Materials for Course.


Review the book options, select the book, and add it to your bag. Follow the prompts to establish an account and pay for the book(s).

Access Codes

Some access codes are sent to email accounts on file instead of standard postal mail. Please provide a correct and frequently checked email address in your account information. Codes usually arrive within 48 hours. If a code is not received by email, look for it by postal mail within 7-10 days. Instructors typically allow time for students to receive their access codes during the first week. Courses may also provide a temporary pass to the eBook to allow for the arrival of a personal access code. Please check the Course Content section of your class to see the information provided on your eBooks. For more information contact your instructor for any needed clarification.
