Does anyone know the details on how to go about ordering this text book? I'm still waiting for registration to go through and I am anxious to get my textbooks. I see on the link for Prescribed Books on MyUnisa, it says that we have to order this book directly from the LR Group. If anyone has the details, please could you share them with me? Most importantly, I want to find out the price!!

Thanks in advanced.

There are instructions on the Announcement page of the module in myUnisa for how to order. You order from www.lr-unisa.co.za/ and you need to make an account for your order.

The total for the material + postage was R522.35 (I don't know if postage varies depending on area).

I have ordered the material online but was informed that the material was not sent overseas and that I could collect it from their offices in Cape Town. Ridiculous. I am in Uganda.

I complained and they quoted me over R3000 to courier it. I asked them to look at another courier but they don't want to telling me to [somehow] organise it myself. This is most unfriendly and virtually excludes overseas students from studying this module. I am still trying to make a plan to get it here more cheaply but it is proving very difficult. The bookshops manage to despatch my books for a few hundred Rand. Somebody should do something about this.

Check your e-mail address that you supplied to them.

Had the same problem, they suggested that I contact the courier directly and make arrangements with the courier to collect and send. Try postnet...?? If any UNISA person is reading, suggest that you look at giving an option to international students to courier text books with the study guides, etc?

This is no good at all. Why can't they mail the material internationally?? UNISA should find solution to this problem ASAP. I suggest UNISA buys the material from this RSA-nationally limited LR Group and charges each student enrolling for this module a total of module tuition fee plus the material.

That is all and save us from this inconvenience. Please, please I beg you UNISA.

My apologies, I should have e-mailed you earlier. We launched our online ordering system this year and we are experiencing some challenges which we will solve as soon as we can. In the meantime, can you maybe place a message on the MYUNISA website for the Oracle students who are from overseas and who would like to order, to contact our Production Manager i.e. Egshaan Solomons (Solly) at our Cape Town telephone number or e-mail address listed below. Telephone +27 21 448 6660 egshaans@lr.co.za / unisa@lr.co.za Please copy: marlenel@lr.co.za and gillians@lr.co.za Solly is extremely busy making sure stock is printed timeously and that students are serviced on a daily basis. My suggestion is then that students can also copy myself and Gillian Suckling to assist Solly with these students. At this stage we are servicing the students as follows: Student place order online - if having difficulty to pay via our online ordering system, students can deposit the money into our bank account and then fax us proof of payment to fax number 086 505 1662 indicating their order number on the deposit information. We are requesting students to pay seperately for shipping - or to instruct their own courier to collect the parcel from us. We have also served students by delivering their books to family or friends in SA who then shipped the books to them. I know this is not the perfect solution, but please assist us in helping these students as soon as possible. I hope this is acceptable to you.
