Course tuition does not include the book. The book price is $255.25. You must buy the book from the College bookstore located at the main campus located at 250 New Rutherford Avenue, Charlestown, MA and not from anywhere else. The book from the college bookstore is tied to a license that will be activated once you email your receipt to Jack Chan at email@example.com. Without a receipt from the college bookstore, you will not be able to get a license and therefore, will not be able to join the class.
To purchase the book, you may do so in two ways:
