JUMPBOOKS - HOW TO BUY, HOW TO USE

WHAT IS A JUMPBOOK?

A Jumpbook is an electronic form of a printed textbook. These digital books contain all of the same pages and illustrations as the printed version in full color. When you purchase a Jumpbook, you are purchasing an access code that entitles you to access a digital copy of the physical book.

Individual shelf tags will indicate if a Jumpbook is available for a specific course. Jumpbooks are typically priced around 40% less than traditional textbooks.

HOW TO PURCHASE IN THE STORE

Courses with Jumpbooks will have the Jumpbook listed on the shelf tag along with all other course materials. Please tell the cashier when checking out that you would like a Jumpbook and give them the department, course and section for the course with the Jumpbook.

The cashier will ring up the Jumpbook version of the text for you, and your receipt will print instructions for accessing the book via the Jumpbooks website.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR RECEIPT - YOU MUST HAVE YOUR RECEIPT TO ACCESS OR REFUND YOUR JUMPBOOK!

HOW TO PURCHASE ONLINE

Jumpbooks are listed online with all of the other course materials for each course, if applicable. Add the Jumpbook to your shopping cart like any other text. They do have (E-TEXTBOOK) in the title to help distinguish them from other alternate versions.

The staff member processing your order will process your order for a Jumpbook along with all of your other books, and you will receive an e-mail directly from Jumpbooks with instructions for accessing your Jumpbooks. A copy of the access code and instructions will be provided with the printed receipts for the order.

YOU MUST HAVE THE E-MAIL OR YOUR ORDER PAPERWORK TO ACCESS OR REFUND YOUR JUMPBOOK!

JUMPBOOKS: PROS AND CONS

Pros:

  • You can search, highlight and annotate your Jumpbooks - and your highlights and notes will sync across multiple devices (for most titles)!
  • Most Jumpbooks allow printing - some titles, every page of the book if you need it! - giving you the best of both worlds, but only for the content you need and choose!
  • Jumpbooks are available on PC, MAC, iOS, and Android; internet access may be required for access to your Jumpbooks.
Cons:
  • Jumpbooks are usually valid only for a fixed length of time - 180 or 365 days. Only a select few titles offer perpetual access.
  • Once accessed, Jumpbooks are non-refundable. Before accessing, they are refundable per normal AACC Bookstore refund policy.
