IWA students should use their current class schedule along with the 2020-2021 Textbook List to identify their required textbooks. The IWA Textbook List denotes whether each text is required to be purchased in print or digital version, or whether it is the student’s choice.
The Virtual Bookstore will be open on July 6th to purchase books for the 2020-21 school year and will offer free shipping from July 6-12, 2020. BNC K-12 is our exclusive online supplier for all digital and print textbooks. BNC K-12 acquired MBS Direct last year in a merger. They are still transitioning so you will see both companies mentioned on the website or in correspondences. All sales will be handled through BNC K-12/MBS Direct. For 9th and 10th graders, books for summer reading are available to purchase on the Virtual Bookstore. Note: The updated textbooks for the 2020-2021 school year will not be available through the virtual bookstore until July 6th.
Select courses based on your class schedule and click on “View My Materials.”
Select the materials that you would like to purchase using the 2020-2021 Textbook List and then add the selected items to your cart. You will need to do this for each class.
If an instructor has provided multiple options, select the best one for you. Example: E-text plus hardbound textbook instead of just the e-text OR used versus new. The IWA virtual bookstore sells used textbooks and often includes links to Marketplace sellers.
There are bookstore “notes” attached to some courses. These notes are included to help guide you to the correct materials and insure that you are not buying duplicate resources for a class. They also help you determine which materials are optional and/or required.
Once you have added your materials to your cart, you will be led through an intuitive check-out process. The IWA virtual bookstore accepts payments via
Some of our textbooks are eBooks for use on your iPad which will need to be purchased before the beginning of school or before you have received your school issued iPad. E-books are delivered in two ways:
The instructions for accessing your e-books will be sent to the e-mail address that you provide to BNC K-12/MBS Direct1 during the purchasing process.
A list of names will be sent to the teacher and he or she will provide you with your log-in the first week of school.
Note: These books will mostly be purchased through our online Virtual Bookstore, however some content will be made available through the teachers of specific courses or through other channels.
If you choose to purchase books from another source other than our official online bookstore, you must match the ISBN# to ensure that you have the correct editions which can be found on the book list. Please note that all workbooks, some novels and selected texts must be purchased new. Other books may be purchased used. Digital books (ebooks) and Digital/Print Combos must be purchased through the IWA Virtual Bookstore in order to ensure the correct edition, unless otherwise noted.
