The first time, select INDIANA from the drop down menu and PURDUE UNIVERSITY for the School Name. Then click Search.
Select the first option, PURDUE UNIVERSITY (West Lafayette, IN). Then Click Continue.
Select the first option, since you are given a Course Key on your handout. This course key is ‘case sensitive. Type it exactly as it is seen, capital letters. Click Continue at the right.
Fill in all the information except Student ID. Leave it BLANK. Use your full Purdue email address. Passwords must be at least 6 characters. Select a password you will remember and write it down. Select ‘I Agree’ to the License Agreement and click Continue.
Your account is now ready. Click ‘Enter CengageNOW’ to begin!
Note: When you sign in again as a returning user, you only have to enter your FULL e-mail address and password that you’ve selected.
This is the home page. ALWAYS CLICK ON THE ASSIGNMENTS TAB UPON LOGGING IN. DO NOT USE THE HOME PAGE TO MANAGE YOUR ASSIGNMENTS.
Select the assignment and click Take. You will notice the due dates on the left. Make sure you select the correct assignment.
After your assignment has ‘loaded’, click on Start Assignment Now.
Your first problem appears. You will notice all problems are listed in the left column. After entering your answer, click Enter Answer at the bottom right. You will get instant feedback if you are correct or not. You have unlimited tries at each problem. Always Submit your Assignment for Grading before exiting the program (whether or not you are finished with all problems). Your assignment is no longer available once the deadline passes.
If all parts of your answer are correct, you receive feedback saying Correct. Then you can select another problem from the left. Problems do not have to be done in consecutive order. You may try to get a correct answer as often as necessary until you are correct. When you submit an assignment for grading and come back to retake it later (before the deadline), your incorrect problems will regenerate with new numbers. Correct problems stay correct.
After submitting an assignment for grading, you can click on “view assignment results” and see, for each problem, what you answered AND what the correct answer was. If you retake that assignment, all previously incorrect problems will regenerate with new numbers. You do have access to all correct answers to help you find your mistake.
REMEMBER You do not have to work all problems in one setting. You may ‘submit’ what you’ve finished and return later (before the deadline). After submitting an assignment for grading, you can click on “view assignment results” to see what you answered for each problem AND what the correct answer was. Then you can log back into the assignment to try the incorrect ones again (they will regenerate with new numbers). When you do exit and return, any problems with previously incorrect answers may be generated with a different version for you to try again. You have an unlimited number of tries to get the correct answer prior to the deadline. Problems may be completed in any order.
You are told if any parts of your answer are incorrect. Try again. Your goal should be to understand how to work the problem, not just to get a correct answer.
