BVTLab Instructions – Getting Started

1. Explore BVTLab as a Guest

Anyone may enter BVTLab as a guest by simply clicking on the orange button on the login page. As a guest, you can preview all of our eBooks and explore all of the student resources that we offer. If you take the next step of creating a free account (see below), you can access the free resources for any of our textbooks, including practice questions, flashcards, step-by-step math solutions, instructional videos, multi-media content, and more.

2. Create a Free BVTLab Account

It costs nothing to create an account at BVTLab. The steps are as follows:

  • Step 1: From the login page click on the blue "Create an Account" button.
  • Step 2: Fill out the required information, create a password (8 characters with at least one number and one letter), and click the button to "Create your Account".
  • Step 3: If you will be doing your course work in the Lab, click on the blue button to "Join a Class in the Lab" (see further instructions below). If you just want to utilize the free and premium resources that accompany any of BVT's textbooks, click on the green button to "Explore Student Resources." You can always join a class later by clicking the “Join a Class” link in the top right corner of the page, once you have logged in to the lab.

3. Register for a Class/Section

  • Step 1: If you have just created an account, click on the button to "Join a Class in the Lab." Otherwise, log in and click on the “Join a Class” link in the top right corner of the Lab.
  • Step 2: Click the "Redeem a Product Key" button at the top right of the page. Enter your Product Key in the space provided. Your Product Key is a proof-of-purchase of BVTLab, and can be obtained in the following ways:
    • Your instructor may provide you with one
    • You may purchase BVTLab at our online store
    • Your campus bookstore may sell BVTLab access kits
    Entering this Product Key will allow you to enter the lab, but you must complete Step 3 to actually join a class.
  • Step 3: Enter your Section Code in the space provided. Your instructor will provide you with this code, and it will register you for a specific class/section and grade book in the Lab. If you do not yet have your code, you can skip this step and complete it later by clicking on the "Join a Class" link.
