Higher Nationals textbook E-Library

Our eFlex library on HN Global offers learners the opportunity to rent a recommended resource: a low-cost way to access more of the texts they need, whether for revision or studying longer term. The pricing and access periods available are the same for each textbook, regardless of print prices.
