Norton representatives know what's great about our books and media because we read and study them in preparation for our campus visits. Creativity and strategic thinking. As you work with professors to find the best Norton course materials for their classes, you will think creatively and strategically to find solutions that address the needs of students and instructors and grow your territory's revenue.
