[nabs-l] Need Advice: Environmental Science Course

Hi Tina:
I'd talk to the professor to see if the previous edition is drastically 
different from the required version. Sometimes it might be wording 
differences or chapters are organized differently. Have you tried Bookshare 
or contacting the publisher to get the current version in an accessible 
format? If those options don't pan out you could scan the book yourself.
Keep in constant contact with the professor and use the office hours to get 
clarification for parts of the course that may be visual. For labs you could 
hire a reader who could help with-in class experiments. You'd tell them what 
to do and they could tell you the results.
Just my thoughts.
