Better than my school LMS integration, but missing key functionality


The Pearson integration into my school’s learning management system is horrid and provides a very small window view for the e-text. This app is leaps and bounds better than that and looks great on my iPad. But this app is seriously lacking in navigation. When I go to the TOC, only the first two sections are listed under each chapter even though there are many more sections available. Also there is no “go to page” feature. So the best I can do is use the table of contents to get to the second section and then flip through the pages until I get to where I left off in the textbook - possibly 30 or 40 pages! Also the timeout feature is very quick. If you leave the app to grab lunch when you come back you are back at the textbook selection screen instead of the page where you left off. Leaving you to painstakingly navigate back to your last page via the method I just described. I could do without a go to page function if at least the TOC was fixed to show the full TOC.



It lost hours worth of highlights and notes. I contacted customer service, which was useless. After going through steps with them for a whole hour, they “escalated” my case, which ended up meaning that they’d send me a form email about every 3-4 days with no new information and no fix. When I contacted them again, they referred me to an incorrect customer service number. A woman halfway across the world spent 20 minutes explaining to me that she couldn’t help me at all. I still can’t make notes or highlights without them disappearing, they won’t respond to me with anything useful via e-mail, and now there’s a new issue of sideways page numbers randomly appearing in the text. Try concentrating on studying a complex topic when random 68 numbers 22 appear all throughout the 35 text that you’re reading. If you can avoid this company, please do — for the sake of your time and sanity, not to mention your performance in class. They’ve done nothing useful since I contacted them two weeks ago. Imagine two weeks in a lab science course without a functioning textbook... Not fun.

“Subscription expired”


I bought MyMathLab from in order to use the textbook because that was the least expensive option for my broke college working two jobs self. My professor does nothing through MyMathLab I seriously only bought it for the textbook access. 5 weeks left to go into class I go on my iPad to access my book and it says subscription expired, but on my Mac I can see it perfectly. I uninstall the app and reinstall it. I restore. My iPad and set it up as new without a back up. Nothing. I contact Pearson support and I am told that I should access the text book via my “pc or laptop because the app is unreliable.” Are you serious. For real Pearson. For real. If you’re reading this I really hope you put in a fix for that because it’s frustrating. At least if I’m mad at Apple I can tell myself I have other tech companies to go to. If I can’t access your stuff, my only option is to submit because my school uses your textbook.
