TEXT INFORMATION for UPCOMING COURSES:
ESCI 109 - FYE Chicago Rocks!
You do not need to buy a text at this time. Text resources will be available (at no cost!) on-line; we will discuss details in our first class session.
ESCI 121 - ALL SECTIONS
There is no specific required text for this course; a "recommended" text should be available in the NEIU Bookstore.
It is strongly recommended that you have available a textbook on the topic of general geology, Earth science, or physical geology (published by a scientific or academic publisher in the last 8 years) available as a resource for this class. One example is the recommended text, by Tarbuck et al., Earth Science (Prentice Hall). Older versions of this text are available at very low cost. More information will be given in class, and posted in D2L.
Other readings may be provided and/or posted on the web.
ESCI 123 Sec 2 - Environmental Geology
The recommended text for this class is available in the NEIU Bookstore: Montgomery, Environmental Geology (McGraw Hill). Other texts on this topic, including older editions of this same text, are available at low cost through various sources; I encourage you to use any appropriate textbook for this course. If you have questions about appropriate texts, ask your instructor.
