Bay Area MBA Textbooks and Textpaks
Where to Find Textbooks and Textpaks
Textbooks for the San Ramon MBA Program for part-time students are now stocked in the Davis campus bookstore only.
You can order your textbooks online. These books may not be available for pick up or shipping until a few weeks before the quarter begins.
The UC Davis Bookstore will charge your credit card the cost of the order and the UPS shipping fee (books can also be ordered and picked up at the store). When calling, tell them the course number (e.g., MGB 200A). The UC Davis Stores seek to have books stocked and available for purchase at least one week before classes begin.
Textpaks are obtained through Study.net and/or Harvard Business Publishing and may be downloaded in electronic form one month prior to the first day of classes. Students must be enrolled in the course to access textpaks. Information will be provided through the course Canvas site regarding accessing the Study.net or Harvard materials.
Once logged into the materials site, students may choose to view textpaks online, or print textpaks themselves.
Items available through Study.net can also be purchased, for an extra cost, as a hard copy that will be sent directly to the student via First Class Mail. If a student decides to order a printed textpak, it will be shipped immediately and will be received within 3-4 days of the order date.
Harvard Business Publishing does not offer a hard copy option.
The advantage of using Study.net and Harvard over traditional hard-copy only textpak providers is the convenience of instantaneous access to course readings online and it provides students with the choice to purchase copyright access and print materials themselves, or purchase a hard copy that will be compiled by Study.net.
Once enrolled, students will need to set up a user name and login password to purchase their specific textpak. Once logged in, students may search for their course (on study.net) or use the provided link (on Harvard) and then begin viewing the materials online.
