Features

  • MGMT9 Online gives instructors the ability to manage their course documents and supplements all one screen. Instructors will be able to view supplements that are already uploaded with their dashboard, upload their own content and organize that content by chapter, week, day, etc. Instructors will also be able to create assignments from the calendar view and list view – this includes chapter readings, assessment content from the quiz and test bank (multiple choice, FITB and true/false content) and their own documents/links.

  • Every 4LTR Press solution comes complete with an engaging print textbook, tear-out review cards, an interactive digital solution, which offers study tools and the full text narrative, all delivered and influenced by a deep understanding of student's workflow and learning styles. Available as print with online, print only, or online only, students have their choice of format all at the same affordable price.

  • Shorter, comprehensive chapters in a modern design present content in a more engaging and accessible format that increases the number of students who read the chapter without minimizing coverage for your course.

  • Tear-Out Review Cards at the back of the Student Editions provide students a portable study tool containing all of the pertinent information for class and test preparation.
