Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR

Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

  • Awful...

    By sky_blue02
    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.
  • It’s ok but needs some real work

    By RG Gamer1028
    I downloaded the app to use for my anatomy class. Overall the app is bland, not really the most user friendly and is basically the bare minimum that could be done. Right of the back there are few things at the time I wrote this that Need fixing. One of these is I’d like to see a page marker where we could also go and type a number to jump to a page like on the desktop version. The second is the that when using the search tool when we get a list of results it would be nice if we were shown which of page they were on. Third I was trying to zoom onto a certain part of a page but when I do so I am unable to shift to the bottom of the page. And the bottom banner for previous and next is also in the way. If the movement boundaries were expanded and we were able to cause the banners to fade by taping on the screen it would be much nicer to be able to work when we try to zoom in.
  • “Subscription expired”

    By geebers4biebers
    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.
  • Good, not great, just needs a few specific fixes

    By Disgruntled Xavier
    Overall, this app is a solid eReader. It makes your school text much more accessible and helps you to be able to study wherever and whenever you want to, however the interface is buggy and the synchronizing across multiple platforms is subpar. The app doesn’t synchronize notes or highlights between multiple devices, such as switching back-and-forth between your phone and your iPad. That forces you to always use the same device to study and make notes on, or else be forced to go back and forth to compare what you already did on your other device. Also, even reopening the app from the background on standby, the app constantly reloads itself and opens up a random page in the book you either were never on or haven’t been on in weeks. It’s very annoying to have to go back to the page you were on previously, rather than to have remember the page you were on and to load it automatically like a good eReader should. Other than the bugs and the glitches, it’s a solid app and has some great potential.
  • Too many bugs for the price of the book

    By smassa96
    I don't know if the issue is with this app or with the etext itself, but several times I have highlighted information I need only to go back in later and find that it was deleted. I'm a nursing student and I paid close to $500 for this software, and for that price I expected it to work close to, if not flawlessly. If I knew there were these issues I would have bought the physical book because I do not have time to keep rereading and re highlighting the same content. I will not be buying any pearson etext material in the future unless they make sure the software runs smoothly before they let people spend a small fortune on it. Aside from this, the app crashes often and sometimes doesn't even load at all.
  • Three major issues

    By Imuneekru
    Three major issues I have with this app. 1) It constantly freezes. 2) It doesn’t save your place. I could be reading one section, go away for a while, and it’ll jump me back to the last place I “bookmarked” three sections ago. Even if I do drop a bookmark, it’ll take you to the beginning of that section, not where I was last reading. This means I’m constantly retreading stuff and wasting study time. 3) Some of the elements are not designed appropriately for mobile. For example, the discussion questions show up in microscopic font. That means you have to zoom in and keep scrolling back and forth to read one sentence.
  • Meh

    By Crusty102
    The biggest issue I’ve been having with this is that it keeps freezing up and closing and restarting it multiple times until it works is annoying. With that said this is the only way I take notes from my textbooks. I prop the tablet in my tablet holder set the screen to not shut off and don’t even need an internet connection. Easy to add highlights or mark a page! The online website is unbearable because it boots you out after so long and takes forever to load and navigate to the textbook through the many different links. If they could fix the performance of this it would be a 5 star app!
  • Expect for something more

    By Diepngoctram19
    The app works great when I first opened it and signed in. They show my book list in my Pearson account. Take a while to download one book and if you leave the app, it might pause or just stop downloading. I have to go back and stay at the app to complete downloading. I was trying to download my A&P book and Genetics e-book but then for some reason when I open the e-book for A&P, it's actually the Genetics book. =.= I'm just speechless. How can they make such an app for e-book on ipad like this while everything was A LOT better when you access online. I hope they update the app soon.
  • Terrible

    By isc25
    We pay $100+ for an etextbook and the app does not even work as it should!!!! How is it possible that I downloaded the pdf of the book on the app on my iPad, and every time I leave the app (even for 1 second) it says “You have no books on your bookshelf”. I don’t understand!!!! The point of downloading a PDF is to have it basically permanent on your device to access wherever you are. Since I apparently have no books on my bookshelf, I have to log out and log back in for my PDF to be there again. So tedious. Fix this as soon as possible. If not, we should at least have the option of downloading the PDF straight to our devices and not have to go through that useless app.

    this app and the affiliated website have given me the absolute WORST experience- and my class hasn’t even started yet. the online login process is long and painful, with no shortcuts. the app itself takes forever to download the books and keeps stopping. on top of all of this there’s no way to have the text read to you, which makes it incredibly difficult for me to get my homework done. this on top of the fact that the copy/paste function is blocked makes it impossible to have the text read out in another application and is extremely inaccessible to people with visual impairment or an inability to focus.
