The reading list for J331: Graphics is fairly complicated this year, because there are all sorts of online options. I've done a lot of research on sources, but I haven't visited every outlet; you might find better prices at some of the other places (Chegg, Barnes & Noble, and so on).
For the first time this year, I'm listing two books that are available from the Oviatt Library through the Safari Tech Books Online service. These are electronic versions that are FREE. Note that they are not downloadable; you have to log in to the library using your student credentials. The system allows only 23 connections at a time from the entire CSU system, but I doubt this will be a problem.
I HAVE NO PREFERENCE WHICH FORMAT OR SERVICE YOU USE.
iPad users: You're probably familiar with both Apple's iBooks and Amazon's Kindle ebook readers, Google is a relatively new player in this arena. To use Google ebooks, download the "Play Books" app. Note that searching for "Google Play Books" in the App Store does NOT work; searching for "Play Books" gets you to the app.
