IS 1403 Test Out Set-up

The SAM 2010 software is no longer available for purchase towards the IS1403 test out option. Students must use the SAM 2013 software.

Please read all of the Set-up directions completely:

Before you can begin testing, you must purchase an access code for “SAM 2010 Assessment and Training v2.0, 1st Edition” in order to access the testing website and practice materials.

All the testing modules must be taken at Testing Services.

A “SAM 2013 Assessment and Training v1.0 Instant Access Code, 1st Edition” access code may be purchased online with a credit card by going to the Cengage website. You may also purchase an access code from the UTSA Bookstore, or through other bookstores/online providers. (If you do purchase from a place other than the webpage, make sure you do not buy used. If the access code has already been registered, it will no longer be valid.)

Once you have purchased the access code, you must register online, through the SAM 2013 webpage, on your personal computer and create a USER ID and PASSWORD. Follow the on-screen instructions. To complete the registration process, you will also need the following information:

  • Valid e-mail address
  • Institution Key –T2059795
  • 18-digit key code – located in your packet or online HERE
    • ISBN-10: 1-285-45851-6
    • ISBN-13: 978-1-285-45851-9
  • Log-In information
  • Necessary Flash Player

Once you are ready to practice for the exams, go to the SAM 2013 webpage and log in with your user id and password. All students have access to computers in the computing labs located in the BB or Frio Street buildings, or you may practice on your personal computer or laptop.

After you login, you must "Join a Class" and "Join a Section". You will be joining the "Testing Center - IS1403 Office 2013" section. Move it to "My Sections" and SAVE.

Once you have added the Testing Center section, you will need to fill out the IS 1403 Disclaimer by initialling each statement and filling in the bottom information. The IS1403 Disclaimer must be received in person or through scan and e-mail by the Testing Services Office before you will have access to the SAM practice materials. Once the IS1403 Disclaimer is received, you will be added to the Testing Center course and allowed to access the practice materials, as well as, schedule your first test session.
